A busy workplace that had its ups and downs
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Elgin, IL – May 22, 2018
At work, my shift began in an ever-bustling kitchen, getting straight to work on the dishes left over from the previous shift while keeping up with incoming dishes, sometimes on my own and sometimes with others. Halfway through my shift, I would take a fifteen-minute meal break. At the end of the day, I would empty the sinks, sort clean dishes, and go home.
The time that I spent at this job was personally stressful. The work itself was not really too challenging or too competitive, but dealing with the sheer amount of dishes and the occasional rogue elements caused significant stress.
Despite this, I liked my job. It was paradoxically relaxing most of the time, and I found friendly coworkers and understanding bosses.
