Being a server means being a team player and always looking out for your fellow employees. We understand each other. We are different people with similar purposes. We are all employed and working for the same business. It is this familiarity with each other that helps us respect our broader family: everyone that works in the restaurant business. Customers cannot comprehend our responsibilities or our goals to make them happy until they have stepped out of the booth and into our aprons.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
