Most of the times, I'm the cook at a fast food restaurant. I'm the guy who cuts the chicken, processes the chicken to be cut the next day, prepares and fries the chicken, and does cleaning up duty. Now more than ever, I'm on cleaning duty.

I despise cutting the chicken as I'm in a hellish numbing cold for most of the morning. I don't consider myself being good at it, as my cuts are sub-par and I take too long. I would consider myself alright cooking the chicken, despite being slow during peak hours. I excel at cleaning duty and it's the part I really like doing, even if it seems degrading for other people. Even still, I don't consider myself being the best at it.

I worked food prep, dishes and busing in the front of the house when I was younger. Somedays I actually miss it.

I dont have a job, I'm still a high school student now heading into grade 11. I get straight A's, so I guess I can say I am good at my job?

Don't get too comfortable. I've seen it happening to my old colleagues, school perfomance isn't the sole indication of future success, in fact, planning and social skills play a bigger role. Just a bit of advice :)

I would agree with commentator's advice.



I am an Operations Manager VP at a large world wide bank. That's basically a manager of managers level. At that job I am average. My biggest opportunity is doing a better job of managing up and all the areas that entails. What I am exceptional at is the individual department I run. My knowledge and experience there is definitely among the top in the world.



I make software. I guess I'm alright. My director is certainly happy with the job I do,



I work for a Laundromat -- turned 20 years working there in May 2017. I must be doing something right...

I'm a Medical Device engineer, and am in charge of Quality support for several product lines my company manufactures. When it comes to line support, corrective actions, and continuous improvement, I feel I'm great at my job....which is fortunately the bulk of what I do.

However...part of my role is that I manage a small group of technicians, which is something I honestly feel I have a lot of room to improve on. Giving people bad news is something I'm just not good at. I've had to give major reprimands on two separate occasions, one on an older woman for watching TV on the job, and another on a young girl for getting in a fight with a fellow employee. The first one just didn't care..the second one starting crying right in the middle of the conversation. Obviously wasn't really satisfied with either.

In the future, I'd like to take more leadership courses to improve on this...though I also feel my passive personality makes this a hurdle. We'll see.

Did dish/bus/ make food for a pizza place. Was the best at the first 2, the 3rd not so much.

Also wrapped windows at a window factory, was good at the actual wrapping, but troubleshooting the machine was annoying.

But now I am just a student, which I was good in High School and then terrible in College. I recently turned everything around so I am good again.

Overall: Great when I want to be! :P.

So it's your fault that network and security features in medical equipment is mostly garbage?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I'm doing administrative work for the German government.

It's not a hard job, but you certainly need experience and knowledge of the chancellery's structure throughout the past few terms. I guess I'm not the best in my team, but we're all on a similar (high) level.
