: Prep/ Deli worker/ Slicer/ Grill Chef/ Catering (Current Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – October 4, 2016
A work day at Lessing's (as far as the account I work for) is a roller coaster ride. It starts off pretty slow and before you know it, there are hundreds of students lining up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are chunks of time (on certain days) where there is a calm before the storm, which we use to prep and clean as much as we can. My co-workers are eccentric and unique to say the least. The hardest part of the job Isn't the work itself, but keeping the team I'm working with in Unison. We have off days due to miscommunications, but all it takes is a verbal reminder that we have a job to do and we can talk it out during our prep stage (which is the most optimal time to talk because we take our breaks one at a time) and resolve the situation. The most enjoyable part of my job is the cooking. I have learned so much about food and cooking techniques from those around me and what I studied on my own time from this job. When I get on the grill, I zone out and start knocking those orders off the ticket post and it genuinely makes me happy to see the look on a customer's face when they see what I made for them.

I guess it depends what manager you get to work for? I signed on with no food service experience and was more like yell at then being shown how to do things? The last manager was the worst.I've never been talked down to like I was a dumb 10 year old child.They really need to get audio and video so they can hear the things that were said to me or other workers. Worst place I ever worked. Very short to know breaks which is by law wrong!! Luck I got to use restroom. Good Luck!!!

In my experience for working for the Lessing’s I have learned how to work well under pressure, how to communicate with the public and be a leader. The company has made me want to continue on with helping others and working with the public.
Cashier/Food Preparation (Former Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – January 27, 2014
I was was working amongs college students and college Professors. As a cashier i have performed good customer service such as greeting customers, recieve payment for service performed, using cash credit card, gift card, coupons, etc. I have to maintain a clean and healthy evironment. As a Food Prep I have learn how to prepare salad, fruit cups and sandwiches. I have learn how to cope and deal with a variety of customers. For me this job wasn't difficult at all. The most enjoyable part of this job was getting the work done, chilling with my coworkers on our lunch break, learning new thing everyday. It was a seasonal job so the holiday vacation was great. I also enjoy getting together for dinner with the manager and my coworker at the end of each term to celebrate the time we spend working together. It was a fun job, I have no regret.
