Getting A Raise

Posted by on November 2, 2016 - 1 Comment

hewnbannersmallHewn is a bakery that specializes in delicious bread.

I love working. I love my job.

I have been working at Hewn as a dishwasher for one year. I am responsible for preparing my work station and the bread station for the head baker. I also wash and dry all the dishes and put things away, sweep and wash the floors, and take out recycling.

After working for one year at Hewn, I had an annual performance review with my bosses.  I was nervous about this because I did not know what would happen.  I knew that there were some things at Hewn I had to work on, but that I also did a lot of things well at Hewn. It was hard to hear about my performance.

Some things my bosses told me I need improvement on are slowing down and not using so much soap when washing dishes, and making sure that the dishes are dry when I put them away.  The good things are that I bring enthusiasm to the workplace,  I am great with people, and I am helpful to my coworkers.

Guess what?  I got a raise!  I was proud when I got my first paycheck with my raise. I can pay for more things now and pay back my parents for some of things they have helped me with. I can also save some money too. That makes me feel good!

I am proud that I can be more independent because I have my job. I feel good about myself that I work each day and am responsible for myself. I support myself with my paychecks.   I take responsibility to pay my groceries and my rent.  I do great work at Hewn and I love my job!
