I am so looking forward to the next two days off. In the food service industry two days off feels like a vacation!
I love my job but there are days my body is screaming at me when I get home. I lost two bakers the week of Easter and it has been just me and another baker carrying the entire department until I get the new baker I hired properly trained.
I think at least once in their life, everyone should work in the food service/ grocery industry. Sometimes I get the impression that some customers think that the person behind the deli counter or the person stocking the shelves is uneducated. Actually a lot of the people I have met in this industry are educated, and many have advanced degrees. My step-children both have degrees and both are working for Frito-Lay. Our Dairy/Frozen Manager has a degree in marketing. I myself have an Associates in Science.
Have any of you ever worked in the food service industry? Was it a part-time job when you were a teen or have you worked in it as an adult?
I would love to hear your stories! -MM

I don’t think it should really matter if food service/grocery industry people are educated, highly educated, or uneducated. Everyone should be treated with respect — education doesn’t make you more or less worthy of that. I have a great respect for people that work in any type of service industry. It is terrible to witness how thankless people can be toward others, especially when they for some reason believe they are somehow better. I hope you enjoy your “vacation.”
Thanks Tilly. I so agree. I heard someone say once that retail workers give up their weekends and holidays so that others can enjoy their weekends and holidays.
Absolutely! Where would we be then? Can you imagine if everyone took off the weekends and holidays? The world as we know it would end and that would really open a few eyes.
