Volunteer (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 24 July 2015
My typical day at work, is to watch the cash, cook a variety types of food, and serve to the customer and patients. I work volunteer, at KGH and it is a great place to be, meeting new people and talking to different types of people, and serving them with a meal that they enjoy. Myself I love meeting new people, listening to their stories and sharing my own, and people that come in there, some are there because of some sort of tragedy and others for a birth of a son or daughter. I learned to be more patient here, and see that some people have a different way of appreciating or saying thanks than to simple say it. And management is great here, never a time where there wasn't a question that my supervisor couldn't answer. Never a time where there was difficulty. They do the greatest job ever, and more over they are so understanding to any situation that comes forth. My co-workers are amazing as well, we work together, and there's no arguments, we all decide together on what to do or who does which job. We help each other out when we're stuck. The hardest part of the job is when the customer buys something, but their meal gets disturbed because of some reason and they have to rush upstairs, watching that or knowing something negative may have happened is the hardest part really. But the most enjoyable part of my job is watching them happily enjoy their meal, watching them enjoy what we have done ourselves. And that is what motivates us to keep doing what we do, which is serving them. In the end, we aren't paid for this, we do it because we love to. And also the community itself,more... are such amazing people, so warm and kind. Anyone would do it for them.less
Meeting new people, learning new things. And free hot chocolate.
Sitting around when it isn't busy, or not having anything to do for a long period of time.
