Pros: one free meal, free drinks, great energy in the workplace, 3 breaks
Cons: boss constantly bullying me, had been called in because my boss was too hungover to work
A typical day at work looked like getting up early, driving down to the cafe, organizing the float for the till, start preparing the food stations for the day, clean and set the tables, and organize the menus. I learned a lot of communication skills, and money handling skills, and how to work individually. My manager was a little bit crazy, and closer to the end, I found out she was not licensed to manage any business, and she was into drugs and would come drunk, high, or hungover to work. My co-workers and I got along really well, there was only a small group of us, so it was nice to have support from each of them, if you needed someone to take your shift, they would do it in a heartbeat. The hardest part of my job was trying to get along with my boss who would constantly bully me out of everyone else. I was a target to her, she would constantly put me down or withhold my paycheque. But overall, I enjoyed this job a lot because I got to meet and interact with a lot of people and even some tourists who came from out of the country. I love helping people out, and showing them a good time. I learned how to bake a variety of foods and some culinary skills.
