Fast Food Workers
Fast food workers may have a variety of duties. Some fast food establishments require employees to be familiar with all aspects of the restaurant: greeting and serving customers, cleanup and maintenance, and preparation of some of the simpler food items. Larger chain restaurants may institute this practice as a way of familiarizing the fast food worker with the restaurant's needs as a whole, with the possibility of specialization later. Smaller restaurants, not having enough staff to allow specialization, may follow this pattern out of necessity.
