It would have been a great experience but the timing wasn't right. Unfortunately, shortly after I got the job, we found out my dad was dying of cancer and he was only going to live for 3 more weeks. When my dad passed away, I couldn't function at all as it was also the first death I ever had to deal with and watching my father wither away to nothing really got to me.
When I told my manager, she told me I can take time off. However, other managers and co-workers were gossiping regarding the time I took off due to my dads death.
Other than that, it was a great experience. I was a very independent worker and extremely friendly to the customers and my co-workers.
I learnt even if people are going to be bitter and negative, just kill them with kindness.
