Kitchen Hand in Brisbane:
"Hell."
Pros: Nothing, there is nothing good about working as a kitchen hand at hog's breath Café. Very low hourly rate, no penalty rates for public holidays like Australia day for example.

"Helping The Aged."
Pros: I liked the hours and my weekends were dedicated to that, working for the aged care are jobs of the present and future.
Cons: I disliked the pressure of the work load, I had to work on my own and had to push myself to get everything done in 3 hours. The company was not willing to give me half an hour extra to complete my duties.
