My first experience in the workforce has come from my job with Tim Hortons. Prior to starting I set goals for myself to pursue and achieve. The goals I set proved to help me improve myself in multiple ways. My main goals were to be an asset to my team, make connections, and continue to learn from my job. My hard-work, commitment, and responsible behaviour was recognized and I was promoted to Shift Supervisor after a year of working with Tim Hortons as a Team Member.

The way Ehrenreich used personification allowed her to put emphasis on her coworker’s thoughts and her own. Lastly, the surveys helped to show the reader that many of Ehrenreich’s coworkers struggled, not only herself.

Rex Walls made Jeannette’s life scary and eventful, but she continued to love him and keep him on a pedestal. Jeannette 's mother, on the other hand, came across more negatively according to my classmates and I. While there are some extreme situations in the book that are absolutely horrible for a child to experience, many of the situations with her mom were the worst. Sure she was starving and that was bad, but it was the mother who was mentioned more, not the fact that Jeannette was hungry.
I remember my very first job like it was yesterday. My first reaction I can remember was to giggle and laugh because I would be working with my friends when I got hired at McDonald’s that summer and it made me really happy.
