Working in the lunchroom lets me make a little money while the kids are at school and be home when they are. The kitchen is much more laid back than a typical office setting is. Teamwork is very important as each days meal preparation can vary for each person and certain things must be done before meal service begins. I love getting to chat with the kids and not have to be 'in charge' of them, though they do need to behave in line. You will be hot and sweaty by the end of the day as we have to clean up serving line, all pans and utensils. Floors must be swept and mopped. Quick pace during service time getting kids in and out, keeping the food cooking. Standards must be followed regarding recipes, food temps., cleaning chemicals. Lifting cases of food up to 30 pounds.
off when no school, free lunch, no work to take home
physical job, important to be there each day
