Busser/Dishwasher, Ludlow, VT - June 27, 2016
I only worked part time, so on weekends and holiday breaks. I was also in high school and had no trouble balancing the two. My typical day consisted of checking the condiments table every ten minutes to make sure it's clean and stocked, and in between that I would walk around to all of the tables cleaning the dirty ones and bussing trays. When it was slow and/or we were running out of trays I would go to the back and wash a bunch of them and bring them out. After the lunch rush, which is usually when the trays run low, the trash is usually very full so I empty those, bring them to the dumpster. It's very hot inside to try and compensate for the cold outside so it's nice to go outside to dump the trash. 30 minute lunch breaks in the employee/ski equipment room. You get free lunch. Everybody there is pretty nice and fair. Hardest part is when it's full and you literally can not move without being in someone's way or getting crushed. It's also kind of hard to act busy all the time since there are times there is literally nothing to do but if you stop even for a second or if you talk to someone about anything not work related you will get scolded. The most enjoyable part is probably most of the other employees and I liked stocking the coolers. They are all about appearance and how you represent them, so if you're slacking you'll probably get fired.
