That being said...I would find some where else to work. You are there to learn and get experience right? So don't learn from some one who can't even grasp the common sense of washing fruit. I think it will be a waste of your time.
Totally off topic here... but wanted to share something on this... My friend's aunt recently went to a Big Name Chain Restaurant... ordered fetuccini, thought it tasted funny, sent it back. Got the new plate, still tasted funny, and just had it packaged up thinking maybe it was just her... She brought it home and threw it in the freezer... Few weeks later, she starts developing sores in her mouth. Goes to Dr. and confirms that she has an oral STD (I'm sorry I can't remember which, the story grossed me out when I was told)
So... blah blah... they finally test the food she had waiting in her freezer.... IT TESTS POSITIVE FOR 4 DIFFERENT SEMEN "SAMPLES"
She's currently suing them (and let me state, this woman is in her late 60's, I doubt she picked up the std in a "normal" way)
Funny thing, I was a waitress for almost 10 yrs, and can honestly say I never saw anything like this first hand.
