I felt as if Management didn't like the staff they worked with. Calling in sick was difficult to cover and was often made a big deal. The job was easy but I seemed to get yelled at alot over drink coolers and impulse areas, as well as the reading glasses and sunglasses station.
First and fun job I have been hired at before joining the military Typical work day start off slow in the morning then pick up around 4pm or 5pm where you need to keep the line moving. Holidays is very busy no matter where you work at.
Great friendly and helpful in the hiring process . understood my background and time not being employed and was very nice to get paperwork complete and start working . flexible with schedule and duties . helped in maki g room for advancement . i really loved working for this employer and at the time it was my first time going back to work . i also receive disability amd this position was a great start to ease myself back into working
The job is pretty demanding, considering you will most likely be the only cashier whenever you get to work. You feel like you are doing the work of 2.5 people. The hourly pay isn't great. Break times vastly varies.
I have felt very undervalued there. They promote and demote me every year as a seasonal manager and I've never had a job do that. They are so cheap that they won't even keep me on as a manager permanently. So I'm constantly gaining and losing huge amounts of hours and pay which is incredibly hard to live on. The managers can do no wrong and as a cashier you will never be promoted or rewarded for anything.
A typical day at work was stocking shelves and running the cash register. I learned how to operate a convenience store. The management at my location was somewhat harsh and would write people up for doing minor things that didn't seem of much consequence. The hardest part of the job was dealing with uncooperative customers. The most enjoyable part was stocking.
