How boring! how many hours did you work?Originally posted by Courtney
I did workplacement at St John's park bowling club (for yr 11) and for year 12 I went to Wildfire restaurant..
Both were ok i guess..but like everyone i was soo tired after standing for sooo long and only getting a half an hour break!
The only problem with workplacement is there are so many repetitive tasks! At wildfire for about 4 out of 5 days I chopped boxes and boxes of mushrooms, brunoise onions, chop celery and Jardinare carrots!
St Johns park wasnt that bad!...we didnt do as many repetitve tasks and we served lunch and dinner times...
After workplacement however, i sort have turned off the chef job as my FEET KILLED!! Im glad i have finished my two workplacements!
Hey Misturi, did they go off at you on workplacement?
I didn't get to use a knife either. I didn't cook, use a knife or do much. I only made garlic bread as well as prepare food.nettie said:no affence but at least you got to do stuff at your work placement i was not aloud to do anything at all i actually wish i did get to use a knife or something. It was a waste of time for me i get more experiance at school
I know what you mean about the travelling. I had to travel up to the city everyday for a week in year 10 for a law week thing. aftermath? $30 in travel fare (cause of peak hour travel) and one entire week of getting up at 6am so that i could get a lift to the station.v sia said:they say workplacement is catered for the area you live in .... then why do i hear people in my school saying they did workplacement in the city etc.
how bad would that be , 2 hour travelling there and back + train ticket , even worse if you have to be there at 7 am or something
oh yeah i forgot you dont get paid and you miss out on 1 week of school
( god ... im scared of where im gonna do workplacement at )
no way!?! it was the first time it ever happened to me ...i was only out for a few seconds...i was chopping mushrooms and i felt like i was goin to be sick so i started to head towards the door but started to fall, one of the other chefs caught me and the head chef tried to carry me out but i woke and tried to walk myself.... the same thing happened in church, only i wasnt chopping mushrooms!Skeeta said:....._Manda87_ swear to god i passed out at mine too!
