Pros: the kitchen was like a family
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work for a General Helper would be going to the dining room and making coffee, then making sure everything is fully stocked for service. During service continuing to restock the salad bar, as well as making sure there is juice and milk in the machines at all times and that there is always fresh coffee made for the clients. During the rush I'd also have to restock the sandwiches as they are practically flying off the shelves as the clients are rushing off to their job sites. After service we clean the tables and restock the condiments. Then we'd do the daily cleaning list which consists of things such as cleaning the ice cream machine,slushy machine, cappuccino machine, popcorn machine, and nacho machine. Then we would restock the pop and water, yogurt, and dessert coolers, and preparing for the next meal service. My coworkers were pleasant and hardworking. The hardest part of the job was predicting what would be training new General Helpers for the job, but it was also the most enjoyable part of the job because you get to make a new friend when teaching them the job, and for me training people was very rewarding.
