I had a co work , He had an excellent personality and great team worker. The hardest part of the job was closing up on the afternoon shift so I don't miss catching my bus,and have to pay for a taxi home.The most enjoyable part of the job: Was getting to know my customers and serving them and making them smile and knowing they were pleased with their meals also working with a co work that truly understood what team work was all about.
