Come To Work With Me
I love hearing about first jobs; what it was, who you worked for, what your boss was like, etc. because I seriously believe those first jobs helped shape us as humans. I’ll let you in on a little secret, my first job was at Chick-fil-a, but not passing out sandwiches and saying, ‘my pleasure’, I was the mascot! I was the Chick-fil-a COW, and not the big cow, the little baby cow! I loved it, it carried me into the prestigious honor of being our high school mascot which led me to really (really) wanting to be the KU Jayhawk (I was too tall to be Baby Jay and too short to be Big Jay, *sigh*).
In college, I went into a food service position (because hello, Chick-fil-a Cow here); I genuinely think everyone should have to work in this industry at least once. I joined the crew at the largest dining hall at KU and quickly moved up to a crew leader position; that might not mean much to you, but I was feeding dinner to 3,000 kids per night on Daisy Hill. I worked all the meal shifts but dinner was insane!
