Cashier, Angela

Some would say the most important person in a restaurant is the one handling the money and credit cards. This is where collective tips are deposited and final tallies are made.  Angela Peña has been counting pesos at Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant since 2000.

"The job is never boring," says Angela, "there's a wonderful view, great music, which is live sometimes, returning clients that are always friendly and the staff is fun."

Before working at Daiquiri Dick's she worked as a sales associate at the exclusive boutique, Sucesos,  but a friend recommend that she try working as a cashier at the restaurant. Angela thought that sounded more stable than a job that depended on commissions and she has been taking care of business at Daiquiri Dick's ever since.
