What I liked
The people there were all so nice! I interacted with amazing people from many different backgrounds. Even though my position was a cashier, I was the first person customers came with questions to, and I answered the phone regularly. I was able to use some of the knowledge I had gained from a Field Botany course I had taken by identifying trees/shrubs, and I used knowledge gained from a Soil Science course to recommend fertilizers and other soil applications. I even made a connection with someone who had graduated from a similar program to mine at BYU. I performed many other roles than simply ringing up customers' orders.
