Burger Paradox line cooks work in a close knit team preparing a variety of foods. The main job is to prepare high quality food as soon as possible, by being able to coordinate hot foods and cold foods within minutes from the time the order is received. During rush periods cooks receive dozens of orders in the kitchen. Cooks are responsible to keep track of these orders and make sure they are prepared in order. Many orders are cooked or being cooked at the same time. Cooks must juggle several items without allowing items to burn, get cold, or allow meals to sit until quality factors are affected. A cook must notify the serving staff when orders are ready and do so in a polite professional manner.
