What I liked

Of the entire experience I had a great bond with my coworkers.

What I wish was different

The environment needed a lot more improvement. There was a lot of disorganization.

Advice

That experiencing highly changing and quick paced jobs such as waitressing in busy restaurants teaches you skills that not many othee jobs can, like how to keep yourself from getting overwhelmed or dealing with angry and upset costumers. It also teaches you the value of money since your income is solely based off of what other people give you.
