Pros: hard work is recognized at this job and you will be called back due to working hard.
Cons: due to it being a temporary assignment, there are no benefits and not too much room for growth.
A typical day at work includes sorting, entering and validating lunch applications so that New York City students between the grades of pre-k and 12th can be 'coded' to determine whether they are to pay or receive lunch for free. At this job, I have learned how to enter and validate student applications using Franklin Free and Reduced Meal Benefit Management software. I learned that being a hard worker and quick learner allows room for advancement. I respect many of my co-worker because they feel the same way I do regarding our responsibility toward NY city students which is getting the applications done, getting the students 'coded' in order to be sure they've eaten (for some it’s their only meal, I take that very seriously). My job is not hard at all, it is very detail-oriented but, it is not difficult in the least. The satisfaction of knowing that the student's applications have been taken care of and the determination of eligibility for lunch, albeit free or paid has been made, is the most enjoyable part of my job.
