Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

I have always wanted to be a gas station attendant. I believe we are a few of the most trusted employees in all work places. I however loathe being a pawn shop attendant. These shops are mostly owned by elderly people who do not leave their shops. One is left with too little freedom to make any decisions.

I have worked at a pawn shop as well as at a gas station. With all the freedom in a gas station that allows one to be a better person by learning virtues of self control and also honesty I have grown to love my job. I quit working at the pawn shop because there is too little freedom and too little room to grow. All you ever hear of are instructions and these do not give one a chance to grow individually.

I always feel motivated when working at the gas station since my employer trusts me. I have been trusted to handle large amounts of money each day and I have learnt that it is never a good idea to steal. I have freedom to help a poor street kid without receiving a piercing stare. I can spend my money on a nice snack for lunch and not two slices of buttered bread. I have learnt to love my job and to always appreciate my employer each day.

Please let me know if you need any clarification or modification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. Thank you for offering me this opportunity. Thank you for this opportunity
