Pros: it was a small business, so working as a team was easy, paid vacation, annual raises.
Cons: small staff
A typical day at work would include me either opening or closing the store. If I opened, I would prep the store and then enter the office to count the safe, and complete opening paperwork. I would then proceed back to the store and open for the day. I would run the cash register, bake, provide customer service, relieve employees for breaks. If I closed the store, I would go into the office to count the safe, make the daily deposit, complete paperwork, fax paperwork, and take the deposit to the bank. I learned how to be a strong leader by working this position. Management gave me many responsibilities and learning opportunities. My co-workers were great to work with, we knew how to work as a team and they listened to me when I gave my input on their job performance. The hardest part of my job was adjusting to being in a high position at a young age, however I made the transition well and it made me gain a new sense of self respect.
