Cashier/Appeal Expert (Former Employee), West Columbia, SCAugust 17, 2013
A typical day at work for me usually was being a cashier. I learned that its not always as easy as it looks. The management was pretty good. I enjoyed working with my coworkers we all pretty much got along. The hardest part of the job was learning the different things on the cash register. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning different thing, – more... and also when we were busy. – less
