Cashier: Monotonous, but A Job Nonetheless
Retail Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – August 13, 2015
As a Retail Sales Clerk, or Cashier, your job was very simple. In fact it was just that. You count change, address the customer in a friendly manner, and scan their groceries. There was little deviation from the formula, and for some, it can be considered very stale or monotonous. Although it's not a job for everyone, it is a job. I only worked there part-time, but with full time, I had heard that there were medical benefits, among other perks, and opportunity for advancement, if you were up to the challenge. My favorite aspect of the job was my co-workers and managers. They were all very friendly, understanding and professional. I had no issues with the management for my entire time employed there. My least favorite part of the job was definitely the lack of variation. If you did not have something to take your mind off of checking the time, the hours seemed to stretch on for an eternity. But, to end with something positive, I learned quite a bit about customer service from this position. In dealing with so many customers a day, you have to be friendly, otherwise it makes everyone's day worse, including your own.
