Flexible hours with no room for advancement
Cashier/Clerk (Current Employee) – Rome, NY – December 29, 2017
A typical work day includes clocking in and attending your register for 1-2 hours before being put on break at a time that is convenient for the store and not for the employees. Coming back from break, a cashier would work another 3-4 hours before clocking out and going home. Customers in retail are always rude, which doesn't reflect on the company, but handling the customers who are rude can be incredibly stressful when employees aren't educated on proper policies. Coupon and sale policies can be confusing which leads to a cashier looking like they don't know what they are talking about. If you advance to a position, such as cash office or supervising, you are paid minimum wage to have more responsibility and given about 3 days of training.
Short breaks, no benefits
