Comfortable once settled in/many fun times
Retail Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – CA – January 4, 2016
After greeting my team mates a few minutes before my shift, I would walk about the gift shop noting any new items that had been set out since my last day of work. I would note any new prices of things. I would straighten up anything out of order and note places to be dusted and any liter on the floor. A quick trip to the store room to see if any shipments needed to be unpacked, priced, and set out.
Then I would take my replacement position at the cash register as the other team member cashed herself out. We'd have a chat about the way things had been going and anything of importance like several buses expected to arrive, troublesome guests, new meetings or rules, etc. Then the 8-hour shift would resume.
This was mostly an enjoyable job. New people would come in and most were in a good mood because they were on vacation. The hardest part of the job was if a co-worker felt sick or was in a bad mood, Management did not interfere often, although, since casinos are sovereign nations, some rules could be bent in their favor without any recourse, which was discouraging. I guess that was one of the most important things I learned.
Great health insurance, free meals, and massage chairs
