I liked it when we traveled on the cruise ship...I’ve learned to be better at filling the pop machine. - LEAH
I’ve learned how to count money and wrap coins. I like the people I work with because we laugh at everything. -ANGIE
My favorite thing is when we went to Alaska to pan for gold and go to the Red Onion Saloon, the salmon bake, eating on the cruise ship, going on move jobs and vending machines. I’ve learned how to greet people, listen, eye contact, shake hands, and tell them my name. -TYLER
