-A typical day is starting off with a smile and positive attitude.
-Daily duties include serving breakfast, lunch, and Am/Pm/late snacks according to the Primrose serving schedule times.
-Learning new recipes.
-Fulfilling the needs of teacher and office staff requests pertaining to food/kitchen items.
-Responsible for taking weekly inventory from our main food service truck, sam's club once a week, and the local grocery store for small necessities.
-The coworkers are always appreciative. Literally.
-Management team is very supportive and ready to hear any questions, concerns, and praises.
-The most hardest thing is feeling stuck at times and lack of advancement. I learned to motivate myself to see what can make the kitchen a better place for the school. I continue to learn this today. As they say, the kitchen is the heartbeat of the school, to your home, to your stomach. Hehe. Keep it going, no matter what; even with sweat, tears, and even mistakes.. keep going, be willing, and open minded if you really care. You truly grow as a person and a chef!
-There are many things I find enjoyable about my position. 1. I enjoy catering events we have. 2. I enjoy my work life balance. Weekends and holidays off/paid holidays. Clocking out early. 3. The children's love to me. Nothing like receiving hugs and "thank yous'!" 4. Teamwork. We help each other when we are in need. Teamwork makes us closer as a Primrose family.
Great support from management and staff, hugs from the children, building relationships with parents, getting help and assistance when needed
