During the summer season months, I job as a waitress at a local beach bar and diner. The club is located right on the sand, with a gorgeous view of the ocean, and is a popular spot. I care about my job because I acquire a tremendous amount of tips. I am not ecstatic about dividing the workday between the air conditioning interior and the blazing warm exterior. The beach club has seating both inside and at a large outside patio. The indoor bar and diner are air conditioned and consistently kept far too cold. Because the door is consistently opened, letting in warm air, the management feels it’s necessary to set the control unit super low. There is a non stop blast of chilly air from a/c vents all over the building. Whenever I step inside to fetch drinks from the bar, food from the kitchen, or wait on patrons, I shiver and wish for a sweater. However, I also have tables with patrons outside on the patio. They are shaded by pressing umbrellas, although I’m totally exposed to the sun. As soon as I step outside, I start to sweat immensely, and I often end up sunburned. I feel it would make far more sense if the hostesses either worked outside or inside. I could then dress for either the heat or the air conditioning. Switching consistently from warm to cold, I’m more often than not uncomfortable. Plus, our system would eliminate some of the traffic through the door, which would reduce energy waste and cooling costs. Unfortunately, no one is willing to provide our suggestion a try.
