Working at Champs, not only did I learn how to make pizzas and bread chicken, I also learned how to manage my time. It helped me to become more patient. After a year of working at Champs, I am proud to say that I have made a family with my coworkers. When my coworkers and I are working, we make jokes and laugh—memories that I will forever cherish. My favorite part of the day is making the customer smile and laugh with us.”

I have formed friendships with both coworkers and patrons as we all work together as a team. Additionally, management is always willing to work with a college student's complicated schedule and understands school must come first.”
