Bakery Manager (Former Employee), Kabul, KAB – December 13, 2013
Pros: being respected by the customers
Cons: some days due to work load missing school
It was owned by my older brother first then I toke the overall responsibility of the bakery when I was about 13 years of age. Our customers were very satisfied from the services we provided them. They would cook food at home and bring them to us for lunch and dinner. The work was a little hard. It was 8 hours of standing in front of a wooden oven even – more... in hot summer without any cooling system. I went to School in the afternoons. The best part about working there was that I helped and supported my family financially and the worst part was waking up at 3-4 in morning and going to work. It is not easy when you are just a kid. – less
