Oh Hi! First, I’d like to welcome you to my blog! Cool that you found the way!😁
I think you don’t know what am I writing about just from the title, so I will tell you. I am writing about my practical training which I did in the beautiful state Carinthia. I’m sure you know that Carinthia has many really lovely lakes. I don’t want to show off, but I had the chance to work nearby the lake named Klopeinersee. But in which company did I work? To answer this question, I worked in a restaurant which is called Seerestaurant Princes for 3 months and it was a great time, with a lot of new experiences, new friends and also very stressful situations. 😳
In my blog I’d like to tell you more about the company, the people who run this company and about one of the most stressful days during these 3 months. And in my last point, i will write about the working atmosphere.
First, I will give you some information about my practical training. I did my practical training in a restaurant in Carinthia with 5 other students. The restaurant is called “Seerestaurant Princes” and it can be found near the beautiful “Klopeinersee”. The owner of the restaurant doesn’t only have a restaurant, there is a hotel too. 5 minutes away from my workplace was our own house where I lived for the whole three months. It was a great comfort because I didn’t have to use public transport and walked to my workplace every day.
Now I tell you some facts about the company. The company is a small one and is run by Harald and he is also the main boss. His wife, Christine is also involved in the business. Harald is in the chef position and cooks in the kitchen. Harald is a really heated person in stress situations. When he had a lot to do, you had to be really careful with his feelings. 😂 But in person, he is a great cook and really funny. His wife, who was also head of the company, helped us behind the counter and did the reception work of the hotel. In some situations, it was a real struggle because we were not that much personnel and when she was in the hotel, we needed her the most in the restaurant. The restaurant isn’t that big. It has two main places to work in. For the guests, it was possible to eat on the balcony on the terrace and directly on the lake with tables on the lawn.
Now let me come to our work conditions. In my opinion, we had good working conditions. We had two times when we could work. We could work from 6 ó clock until 2 ó clock and from 2 ó clock until the end of the day. Our job was to clean the restaurant and in the main area, we had to take care of our costumers.
Now I will write about the most stressful day of my life. On this day we had a really big event. It’s called “Seefest” and on that day we had 150 reservations. The problem of this event was that the restaurant only had space for 100 people. So we had to build more tables in the yard. It was very stressfully and on this evening, we worked until 3 ó clock in the morning.
In this last paragraph, I will write about the working atmosphere. We all had a really family-like connection. We found solutions for every problem and talked a lot during work time. In our free time, we often went to bars and talked the whole night. Our favourite bar was the 20’s. The owners of this bar are Freddy and Evi.
To sum up, I can say that I took the people really into my heart and it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the three months. I learned so much new stuff and I am really proud to be able to say that I worked together with all of them.
I hope you liked my blog about my practical training. Fell free to leave a comment and tell me about your experiences in your practical training.
