Waiter/Waitress in Canberra:
"Working At Max Brenner."
Pros: It's a nice, friendly environment. I enjoy chatting with my colleagues, and serving customers. It isn't a traditional cafe, so the unusual utensils allow us to engage more with the customers. There are also various roles, such as shop and desserts.
Cons: Under staffing and high employee turnover rate.
