Nicki admitted that she wasn't the best at her job.
'The customers hated me. Because I didn't want to be there and the customers could tell,' she said.
Nonetheless, she said she made good money from the job and and even bought her first car with the earnings and tips she accrued.
'I was really really young making over $500 a week. I had a brand new BMW when I was 19-years-old from working at Red Lobster,' she said.
