Working in a butcher shop is not a cake walk. It is physically demanding every day. It is standing 8 hours + every day. It is cold hands and sharp edges. It is physically handing 300 lb bodies of meat and making them into 2 lb pieces. It is cleaning a lot. If you don't see the value in putting in a day of actual labour and at the end having the satisfaction of knowing you did a good job then this isn't for you. If you don't want to wake up early on Saturdays and work over time before Christmas this isn't for you. If you want a job to earn cash and not a skill that you grow, learn, develop and excel at over time this isn't for you. We are providing someone an opportunity to become a skilled professional in a unique trade.
