Say hello to Connor, Truck MVP.
Connor started working with us in May, right before the start of one of our big festivals. He was super friendly, and very flexible in his interview – even when we told him we had lots of work, but weren’t entirely sure what we’d have him doing! When he agreed to that, we knew he was a keeper.
Since then, he’s taken to the truck life like a fish in a food truck. He spent all summer learning the truck ropes, ultimately training to be a shift supervisor for us. Hell yea!
He makes us laugh and is kind to his co-workers. Now that the trucks are closed for the summer, he’s moved indoors and is getting the hang of being a line cook at Petit Poutinerie. Didn’t we say he was flexible?
What do you like about working at Petit Poutinerie?
I like working at Poutinerie first and foremost because I like the people I get to work with. They’re all cool, interesting, fun-loving folks who I like spending time with at work and in my free time.
I also love food, and I feel like I get the opportunity at Petit Poutinerie to make and serve delicious, high quality food that I can be proud of. When I’m on the truck, I get to see lots of different places, people, and events in the city and elsewhere that I wouldn’t be able to see otherwise, and it’s been an incredible way to get to know Rochester.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I’m not working, I like to make music, draw, cook, go for walks, and hang out with my friends. I play in a band called Comfy and another band called Big Nobody. I also attend RIT where I study Software Engineering, though I don’t like school.
What’s your favorite poutine?
My favorite Poutine has got to be sausage gravy with an egg.
