Top Hibachi －
At this job I used my own car to deliver Chinese food within a ten mile radius. Often I would take upwards of 4 deliveries at a time and it would be up to me to find the most efficient way of getting the food to each customer in a timely manner. This job taught me how to think on my feet and occasionally deal with unhappy customers. I also learned how to distribute change in a timely manner and, due to many miles spent driving, I picked up a strong familiarity with the surrounding area.
