Loved working with the other staff and meeting the customers and serving them. Great atmosphere to be in and work in. I love that they play music throughout the store, it makes working a little more enjoyable.
Your mostly on the cashier and when your not at the register your cleaning up the store. Management was easy to work with and not too strict but still expect a lot from you. The hardest part of the job was keeping the shelves stock and handle customers at the same time.

You were not trained properly or long enough. They only train you for one or two days and then leave you to work by yourself for entire shifts. Then if you make a mistake an don't have anyone there to help you fix the problem because it's only been your second day. They dock your check.
Fast pace work flow, dealing with customers, operating cash register, cleaning and stocking shelves.

Fast pace work environment involving customer service. Need speed and patients to excel. You need to keep a positive attitude everyday when dealing with different attitudes and personalities of every customer.

I really didn't like working for Hot Spot because of the management. the manager was ruse and would only give two days to train employees before letting them work alone in the store. Due to the way management treated the employees, not many lasted. The manager would often call on days off for employees to come in. I worked for almost three weeks straight without a day off. Many days I would have to work double shifts. Most of the customers were kind and understanding.

The management is great, co workers are great to work with. the hardest part was working with perverted Truck drivers, but the easiest was the friends that you make the customers that you are around. You can change someones day with a smile.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Stockton, MO – March 6, 2014
Hot Spot was a job that I looked forward to every day. My manager was fun to work with, but also tough when need be. All of the co-workers got along well and I feel as if that is very important. I had a lot of regular customers at Hot Spot that I got to have great conversation with every day, which is what I loved most about my job. I've had some even bring me sweets to work just because, and a couple of them even bought me and my daughter Christmas presents. 8 weeks into working for Hot Spot, I was promoted to assistant manager, which was the hardest part of my job, but simple after doing it for a couple of weeks. I learned about auditing, paperwork, properly counting out cash drawers, answering calls from the head office and answering their questions to the best of my ability, ect.
assistant manger pay, great co-workers, fantastic managment, friendly customers.
impatient out of towners, closing late at night by myself.

a day at hot spot can be fun, and very stressful. you have your good days an your bad days.
I've learn not to let people walk all over me. learn to handle a store by myself. learn how a store runs. I've learned how to do new things like. paper work, vendors, ordering,
management is good sometime like i said first you have your good days and your bad days.
i love my co workers we all get along, we all work together an try to keep the store together, try to keep our customers happy.
the hardest part about working at hotspot. you have to keep you mind clear by all means. it gets hecktic. dealing with rude customers, robbers, lottering, how much you got to do with stocking an cleaning. it's alot.
my most enjoyable part about my job is that i get to meet so many new people. i learn an hear new things from them everyday. my customer are the reason that i am still there an that i still have a job. i give them the respect an happiness that they deserve when the come into the store. I want them to feel welcome so that they will come back.

I found a new respect for truck drivers after working with them on a day to day basis. I learned that most stores don't make their money from gas purchases and it is important to upsell. I loved the people that I worked with or for. The hardest part of the job was working all night and not really having much time for anything else.
