It could be my own problems or the problems between us.
How do you analyse this issue? To begin with my backgrounds, as an international student with no related industry experience and permanent residency in Australia, I have to spend more time and effort to find a proper job. But how do you define a proper job? A restaurant waitress with good and stable pay, a warehouse contract worker with above average wage or an office assistant in a start-up company?
I have been a waitress since end of February and now serve as a receptionist. Except for stable shifts and friendly co-workers, I can expect nothing from this job. I learned the cleanest way to wipe the table and the most efficient way to organise the table to serve the big group customers. Also, I have got experience in communication with difficult customers, especially what they are arguing for the priority of getting the table. Through my observation, the middle-aged or elderly Chinese are the most difficult one to deal with. From their viewpoint, hospitality is an indecent job therefore the way they treat waiter and waitress is impolite and arrogant. This is not to refer to all the middle-aged and elderly Chinese but the percentage is way more higher than other nationality. The thing I have learned is always wearing a fake smile when facing the customers.
Warehouse contract worker.
After we discussed with Andy who works in DHL, he suggested I should start my career form the casual worker in Supply chain and logistics industry even start as a causal worker in a warehouse is more better than being a waitress in a restaurant.
