Pros: nice coworkers, good customers, and good humor when appropriate
Cons: employee discount etc
A typical day would usually include greeting the office staff and any present managers, and signing in for duty. Once at my assigned register the wait for a customer begins! Unless it happens to be a busier day. I walk to the front of the lane to make sure any nearby customers are ready for checkout/or need assistance. During a transaction, I and my bagger/service clerk ask questions to ensure the customer is happy with the end result of the shopping trip, while also maintaining a steady RPM (ring per minute). In between customers I converse appropriately with my coworker. I smile all day, but almost every work day without fail, my customers and their children/grandchildren make me smile and feel appreciated, which of course makes any bad day better.
