Pros: -Free food all the time, everybody likes Thai food
Cons: -9-10 hour shifts and the end is often very slow, the occasional unreasonable customer
-At the beginning of the work day, I would set up the Thai Express counter at the food court, make sure that all the condiments, utensils and trays are ready to be used. I take orders, explain the menu items, and relay any customer concerns and modifications to my co-workers who are cooking. Customers are usually friendly, my co-workers are very accommodating and the work pace fluctuates depending on the time of the day.
-Through my experience at Thai Express, I improved my Cantonese and Mandarin while conversing with my co-workers, developed my patience with other customers and learned to adapt to the demands of the customer industry.
-The business was small therefore little management was needed. The cooks at Thai Express have worked there for a long time and efficiently take care of inventory and customers on their own with little supervision.
-My co-workers were friendly, patient and accommodating.
-The hardest part of the job is when there is a rush during holidays and people become very impatient and easily aggravated
-The most enjoyable part of the job was any part of the day because I loved the co-workers that I worked with and the customers were very friendly when its not busy and occasionally would start conversations.
