Pros: flexible on availability and schedule
I'm currently a morning book keeper/Customer Service Leader. A typical day at work for me is being there by 6 am to clock in and taking out the first register till and counting it to make sure the standard amount of money is in the till. Next is counting the cash office to make sure everything is balanced out. Then i put all Tills out in its registers and file reports to make sure sales match. (Ex. Western Union, Lottery, Money Grams). Once completed i deposit money to our bank manually. Once that is done i'm going back and forth loaning money to registers, And coaching new cashiers how to handle their money and supervise all cashiers and bagger's to make sure they follow their duties. I've learned how to manage inventory in the store, reconcile tills, manage employees breaks and schedule when we are short an employee, i also learned how to process Western Union transactions and file paperwork and Vendor payments. The most important value i learned is providing excellent customer service to all guest that shop at our store. Management is a little shaky in some departments of our store schedule are late at times, Managers are not up to speed during some changes in the store. Co-workers are friendly but most are not dependable at all making it hard to call people in if someone calls out. The hardest part of the job is multitasking. This skill is crucial to being a customer service leader. If you are a book keeper you have to do both manage money and make customers happy. The enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and seeing the smiles of customers faces when they shop here.
