Fast food jobs are hard insofar as they usually require you to be on your feet for hours on end. There is no sitting down waiting for customers! On the other hand, workers are not usually running from one end of the restaurant to the other, like workers in Amazon, say, or to and from the kitchen to the diner, like regular waiters.
There is little call on memory; the menu is the same every day and the variety is small. The tasks in putting the food together are carefully set by the company. You just do things the same way every day. You don't need to use your initiative and it certainly doesn't call for brains or creativity. In that way, it's not hard.
Typically, fast food jobs are rather easy jobs compared to other jobs that require more education and experience. However, this type of job would depend on the employee. Since everyone has different skills, a fast food job might be easy for one person, but difficult for another. Usually, fast food jobs require employees to show up on time, have good customer service skills and be able to multi-task during a busy time of the day.
The most difficult time for the employee at a fast food job would probably be at the beginning when the employee was first hired. The employee does not know the procedures yet and is learning. However, over time the job might get easier and easier once the employee understands what to do.
