Pharmacy Cashier (Current Employee), Maryville, TNDecember 7, 2013
Pros: meeting new people, getting breaks

I have learned from this job that customer service is an important part of anyone. I had the most enjoyment from meeting new people, but the hardest part of the job was getting all the people to leave with a smile on their faces. My co-workers were very nice in this job.

Working with customers regularly.
Front-End Manager (Current Employee), Clinton, TNOctober 27, 2013
Pros: free amusement park tickets
Cons: inconsistent hours, devalued family time
My job was to manage employees on the front end of the store, as well as manage money and take care of problems customers had. The hours varied from week to week, but they were flexible. The store only closed on Christmas, and only closed early on Thanksgiving and Christmas eve. I gained quite a bit of skill in communicating with people and dealing – more... with problems while working there. The hardest part of the job was dealing with young associates with a lack of work ethic, but it was pleasant when repeat customers got to know you and almost became friends. – less

Good pay for my first job, coworkers friendly, management not very understanding.
Customer Service & Collections Agent (Former Employee), Johnson City, TNOctober 16, 2013
Pros: decent pay, friendly co-workers, satisfactory work environment.
Cons: unrealistic expectations the managers had
It was a fast past job, always something I could do. I mostly kept things clean and helped out customers. I learned how to manage my time properly and how to deal with customers.Management wasn't too bad though they weren't very understanding of my situation at the time. Some coworkers were very helpful where others were not. The hardest part was time – more... management and getting everything cleaned and put away before closing. The best part was always having something to do and being able to work with others. – less
