Wahoo! I'm finally employed! It feels so good to know that I will at least be having some incoming cash flow this upcoming semester. By a pure stroke of luck, really, I set up a profile on BYU's employment site and within a week, I saw a posting for 150 positions at the Cannon Commons Cafeteria in Helamen Halls. They had what they called a "General Hiring Meeting" where anyone interested sent an RSVP via email and showed up last Saturday at 9 am. The manager there took us all on a tour of the place and described the different stations and the responsibilities of anyone working in each one. Then we divided into groups of about 6-7 and basically chose a shift that was available in whatever position we were most interested in. Flexibility of hours was the key, but I think they got everyone into a position. WOOOHOOO!! That relieves so much stress on my part, plus I think it was a really positive first job hiring experience for me. I will be working in the Grainery, which is basically comprised of cereal and things in the morning and bagels, scones, doughnuts, and other pastry-type things.
It seems pretty simple from what he described, basically just keeping the station clean. It's about 2 hours 3 times a week at minimum wage, so not much, but every little bit helps! :)
