Pros: working for an employee owned company
Cons: working with my husband at the time, being watched more closely because my husband was a manager
This was one of my first jobs. I started out as a cashier and then moved the pizza department in my younger years. I moved to Kansas where I was hired as an accounting coordinator. I met my husband here and then moved to Nebraska where I was hired as the Human Resource manager but then told later that it was given to another person for a favor of another manager in town.
I enjoyed the accounting coordinator position where I learned how to balance each of the 24 cash registers, safe, and books daily. I also enjoyed the hours, 5:00 a.m. - 1:00. In this position we also were human resources so I learned more about benefits, hiring and termination paperwork, payroll, balanced books with each department head for monthly inventory. Management was awesome at the one store I worked for in Kansas but management changed when I moved to Nebraska. I was hired for a position then once we moved there I was told I didn't get the position so I was offered to work in customer service but had to train the new Human Resource Manager. In the customer service position I cashed checks, balanced my register after my shift, sold money orders, completed cash transfers for western union, sold stamps and lotto.
The hardest part of this position was dealing with some customers that were angry and argumentative when they wanted things for free and I could not give it to them for obvious reasons. It was also difficult at times to find an error when balancing the books.
