Being a team member at a restaurant within the Olympic Park was a great experience as it was a good opportunity to experience the working life.I was able to be in a good working environment where it was fun and enjoyable and easy to work with people of different cultures and background.
Working in the athletes village in the Olympic park was exciting – more... as I had the opportunity of meeting and serving the athletes in the athletes dining hall. I had the capability of carrying out my job professionally and maintaining a good performance.
There was good management within the restaurant as well as carrying out my duties. The difficulty faced whilst working there was having to work at a quick pace during rush hours. – less
