Pros: Learned how to make pizza
Cons: Short breaks that weren't even guaranteed, hot environment, high stress
A typical day at work wasn't too bad. Around lunch and the time school let out, and on weekends, the café was constantly flooded, and it was very stressful. I learned how to make pizza, count inventory for stock, and professionally clean the place. My manager was really cool, but he saw that I was the best worker at the time, so I was left with a large workload while the other coworkers, who were mildly lazy, didn't do much. I came home in a highly emotional state many nights (as I was supposed to work until 10pm but most nights didn't leave until after 11), and I began getting upset. My co-workers were pretty nice but sometimes they would slack off and I felt like the hardest working person back there. I would say the hardest part of the job was having the majority of the workload on you and hardly being recognized for it, all the while wanting to advance in the job but having no opportunity to do so. The most enjoyable part was conversing with a few regulars.
