I am not challenged enough.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Tuscola, IL – January 25, 2016
A normal shift for me, at our local IGA, is a six hour evening shift. My responsibilities are to scan and bag groceries, communicating with the customers in a kind and friendly, welcoming manner, and, on closing shifts, cleaning all stations and the front floors.
The top manager of the cashiers at IGA usually makes the schedules and does not schedule enough hours to match what I need (though I have asked for more and have an open availability schedule). The office mangers under the top manager are accommodating and professional.
My co-workers are also professional as well as reliable and friendly. Some I have grown close with over the past months that I have worked here.
The hardest part about my job is not being challenged enough. I feel that I need to more than standing in one place and doing a repetitive job, but there is an upside to my job.
My co-workers and customers bring a positive light to my job. I meet new customers that have stories to tell about their long drives from all over the country and even daily customers that I get to welcome again with smiles. My co-workers, again, make my job a great place to be, because with them, I am a smiling, brighter person.
Great co-workers, getting to interact with different customers everyday, Sometimes getting to organize the isles, cleaning on closing shifts, close to home
Management, repetitive responsibilities, not getting to move around much, not enough to do, not being scheduled enough
