Squidward will give SpongeBob an order, and the player has to click on a patty to put it on the grill, click it to flip it when it's nearly cooked, and then click it when fully cooked to put it on a bun before it burns.
Occasionally, Patrick will appear and eat a Krabby Patty, causing SpongeBob to restart cooking that patty. Some orders from Squidward may ask for a specific ingredient (like mayo) to be left out.
There is only a certain amount of time the player can complete each shift. The player loses when time runs out. The player wins when they complete all 3 shifts without running out of time and becomes employee of the week.
