“I like the environment and the people who I worked with, they made the experience enjoyable. Every day was something different, new challenges to overcome and there’s always something to do. I really enjoyed doing both Culinary prep and regular volunteer shifts, it gave me a couple of different view points and I learned a lot and was able to get a few job offers from the chefs at the Fontainebleau. ”
