Ryan expressed an interest in working in a food service/restaurant setting and through the Pathway to Employment (P2E) program, and with the support of his job coach, he participated in a 20-hour work experience at the Wellsburg Diner. Ryan enjoyed busing tables, dish washing and other duties that support the operation of this business. Ryan related well to the wait staff, and other employees, and found this to be a very welcoming and supportive work environment.
Ryan has taken the skills he learned and is putting them to use, taking on a great deal of responsibility with is new position. Every day, he: fills the vending machine; stocks beverages, salad dressings, and condiments; takes care of all the dishes; serves up soup; waits on the customers and takes orders in-person, from the computer, and on the phone; and cashes out customers on the register.
Ryan works with different co-workers each day and is definitely part of the team. Co-workers speak highly of Ryan and are happy to have him as part of the team.
Way to go Ryan; keep up the good work and positive attitude!
