I'm a cook at this facility and usually a day goes pretty smooth. I learned how to make food for about 200 people per meal. Your managers are pretty easy to get along and work with, nobody talks down to you and usually they are available to help you out or answer your questions. The hardest part of being a cook there is organizing what you have to do all in your head first before actually cooking. It helps you to be more efficient. The best part is that most of the time it feels like a "cafeteria lady" job when you are serving food to the juveniles. Of course sometimes the kids will act up and cause an incident or an altercation and then you remember where you are, a jail for kids, and the guards have to retrain the instigators.
