It was a great first job. It was a ton of work and I didn't have flexible hours which was one of the main downsides so when I left to start school there was no way for me to switch to part-time. Overall, I had a great working experience, learning the ropes of how the company works.
The biggest life lesson I learned from my manager at the time was to always give it 110%, all the time, even when I don't feel like it so I can always stay ahead of myself. Even in the midst of help, always find something to do to stay busy. It'll help the day go by faster and you'll get more done. With that being said, I still had my breaks and ate 3 times a day there, so my job at Sodexo was my home away from home.
I took this job to the heart, I remember one time I didn't want to be late because I knew they would need me badly for the morning rush to feed the hungry teachers and high school kids so I caught an uber during a snowstorm just to get to work on time since SEPTA was down. The takeaway is that when you give it your all, the company you work for only becomes better.
