Good starting point for after school teenagers....
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 26, 2017
I worked as a cashier for about 5 years, not straight - most time was during school breaks, but after college I worked for 3 years straight. As a cashier, you obviously have to work with people and cashing out but they also make you do returns back to the floor and also tidy up the store at the end of the day when it's slow. I worked up to being responsible for the health & beauty dept and the glasses aisle - stocking, organizing, pricing, inventorying, etc. but was never promoted to anything above a cashier. I also worked a lot in the clothing dept, mainly organizing, helping to figure out a better system for the hangers, and folding a ton.
The break room was just a room, small fridge, microwave, nothing special. I felt the place was quite dirty, needed severe upgrades everywhere. I think it's ok for a beginning job for a teenager, just starting out, but get out of there after a year or so. Also, your "reviews" get you about a 25 cent raise, yearly. No benefits.
No benefits, dirty, lousy break room, needs updates
