Pros: they are usually willing to work with your schedule
Cons: it doesn't matter how long you work there, or if you never call off. when it comes to cutting hours, if you make more money, your hours will be cut and those that are new or more prone to call off are given the hours.
* A typical day at work- I clock in and get busy: Greet the customer, and ring up their order, take payment, and give correct change, bag their groceries, and thank them. OR greet the customers and bag their groceries, do store walks to make sure the store is clean, push carts from the cart corrals into the lobby, and when a mess it made, clean it up – more... quickly and efficiently. OR stock shelves, work backstock, pull things forward on the shelves, take customers to an item if they can't find it, and set up floor and seasonal displays as directed.
* What i learned- How to stock shelves, make tags and hang them, how to operate a register, how to deal with an angry customer, how to watch for and handle scams.
* Management- They don't always handle things the best, but for the most part they do a good job at doing what corporate wants.
* My co-workers- I love them. There are some that drive me nuts, and others that help keep me sane. We get along, and most would stick up for me if something happened.
* The hardest part of my job- Watching my hours get cut and go to the newer employees, because I have worked at the store longer and make more- it cuts spending when my hours are cut and given to someone else .
* The most enjoyable part of the job- Getting to know the customers, and knowing that I can be of service to them, and listen when they want to talk. – less
