Kickin’ it in the Korn Krib

Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time working in the Korn Krib, and it’s been a pretty fun experience, actually. A lot of people will complain that working in the Korn Krib is boring because you’re by yourself, you don’t have a lot to do, and it is “boring.” I find it a pretty fun place to work for a couple of reasons.
First of all, when somebody comes into the Korn Krib, you can have a conversation with them for a while, whereas when you work at other places, you are largely limited to staying busy at your station. In the Korn Krib, if some of your friends come by to grab something to eat or drink you can hang out for a while, and that’s pretty cool.
Second, you get to listen to your music. Not that you get to put earphones in or anything, but you can plug your phone or other music device into the Korn Krib radio and listen to whatever you want, which is pretty rare in most workplaces.
Finally, you get to study on the job if people aren’t actually in the store, which is incredibly useful. Given that people who are working in the Korn Krib are taking time out of their day that could be used for studying, the managers allow for students to do homework, so long as they don’t allow it to interfere with their job performance. All in all, the Korn Krib is a pretty useful place for students in general because it creates access to groceries on campus, but it is also a pretty sweet place to work if you are looking for a job at Concordia.
