Cocktail Server

What I liked

I loved the community that is built with the other staff and with the Ann Arbor townies. You get to know some of the customers and it is fun to build those relationships.

What I wish was different

I wish I had made more hours available to work, as it is such a short period when the festival is going on.

Advice

Go with your instincts and have fun!
