My summer experience was awesome. I was placed at the Tan-Tar-A Estates where I worked with the friendliest set of people I have ever met! On my first day in Missouri, the HR manager came by the dorms to take my roommate and me to the resort for orientation. She was very friendly and was always ready to offer assistance whenever needed.
Housekeeping is no easy task but my manager made it fun and at the end of each day I never left work feeling unappreciated. Through interaction, I learned more about the American culture and taught them about my Jamaican culture. We were later joined by 8 Chinese girls. We all got acquainted instantly. I learned how to say hello and goodbye in Chinese and was also informed about Chinese laws.
On my final day at Tan-Tar-A Estates, we celebrated International Housekeeping Day. There was a potluck and everyone was told to take a dish. There was a variety of dishes which included a Jamaican dish (from yours truly), Chinese dishes, American dishes and Mexican dishes. All in all, I truly felt like a part of a family and hope to return.
I can’t find the right words to truly express how great my summer experience was. Thank you JobSeekers and thank you Tan-Tar-A Estates!!!
