20 questions with Hilary from the 'Wa'

How old are you?


Where are you from?


What do you do at the 'Wa'?

I’m a customer service manager.

How long have you been working at the 'Wa'?

3 months

Do you like it?

Yes, can’t complain.

Do you talk to Princeton students?

Once in a while I do. Just about random stuff.

What kind of stuff?

Sports, day to day things…just whatever pops up.

Do you like Princeton students?

Sometime’s they’re obnoxious. They get annoying at times.

How do they get obnoxious?

Sometimes they come in and they get way too loud! Knocking stuff around…

What’s it like on a Saturday night?

It’s a hell of a night. It’s a busy night. You get to deal with the drunks and everything.

Do you like what you do? Does it get difficult?

It’s a little bit of both. Sometimes we do, sometimes it gets too hard.

What do you like best about this job?

The social aspect. I get to meet people.

And the least?

Sometimes it gets overwhelming. Like, let’s say there are a lot of people in the store at the same time – I have to do a lot at the same time. Sometimes we get 300 people in here all at the same time and some of them try to shoplift.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen happen at the Wa?

Somebody locked himself in the freezer. An associate. That was the best.

Who found him?

We found him. He was knocking on the door and we couldn’t figure out what it was!

How did he do that?!

It’s too cold in there and it’s warm outside. So when you go in there’s a vacuum created on the door so if you go inside the door locks itself. That was just hilarious.

How long have you been in America?

6, 7 years.

What do you like best about America?

Freedom about everything.

What do you like least?

The weather. Especially wintertime.

What do you think of the University?

It’s a good university. I heard about Princeton before I came here. I heard the learning system is good and everything.
