Aalborg Street Food - El Santo
It surprised me when I heard that I was going to work at a Street Food Shop. I was really excited on my first day, because I knew I was going to learn how to cook. It only takes about 5 minutes to get there by bike, which is why I do not have to get up before 7:30am. My shift is from 8am to 3 pm and I work from Monday to Friday. In my job I am learning different things such as:
Anyway! I got the best co-worker I could have wished for. He is really polite and teaches me all the stuff he knows. After my stay in Denmark, I will surely know how to appropriately cook, clean and deal with customers.
I had the pleasure to work at Café Peace while I lived in Denmark. My café has different menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, therefore it offers a big variety of different choices. In the first week my working hours were from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., but sometimes they let leave early. I always got something to eat and drink, but I did not really get a break so I had to eat behind the bar. Jonas, who is the son of the owner, explained everything to me.
My main tasks were:
In the following weeks, my shifts changed.
Our work uniform was all black except for the shoes. All my co-workers were really nice to me and helped me with everything. But just a few of them really talked to me, which I really think is a pity, because I couldn't improve my communication skills that much. My boss, named Anne, is such a sweetheart. She gave me her number on the first day and said that whenever I had any problems besides work, I could always call or text her. I really like my workplace and think I was very lucky. Everyone is really friendly and the food tastes amazing. I really improved at the beer tap and made some new friends.
