I was responsible for...
I have five different shift from Tuesday to Saturday. On Tuesday I worked in Bushel Basket Salad Bar, my job included: refreshing the salad bar. Wednesday, I worked in Bonsai, as a server. Thursday in Woodgrill, my job included:serving, cooking: frying fries, sandwiches and burgers. Friday, I worked housekeeping: my duty was vacuuming all the carpets. Saturday in dish room, help to clean the all the pans, dishes and silverware.

I will never forget...
I really like the shift on Thursday, since all three of us have such a good cooperation. Even though, we were so busy, we get along with each other well, and I realize the importance of team work more deeply.

Advice for others...
Be prepared to work hard, and be aware that you are really needed. Developing a good relationship with your co-workers is important, since you need to get along with them the whole semester.
