This month we’re looking back on all the strange and wonderful food jobs people have held during the summer. Whether it’s a job at a local scoop shop, a grocery store, or the concession stand at a baseball field, the skills and memories you gather in those short, hot months usually turn out to be invaluable. Here’s Shelby Vittek on her experience working at Wegmans, which was a dream come true.

When I was 15, my childhood dream came true and I started my first job as a cashier at Wegmans, the grocery store with a cult-like following.
