Pros: Job Flexibility, Works well with life schedules
Cons: Forced to sell Memberships and Credit Cards, Rude customers
A typical day at work was kind of stressful.When you walked in a saw giant lines, it really set the mood for the rest of the day. If you walked in early during business hours and didn't see many people, you knew that it was going to be boring and slow for a few hours. Management was either on your back to get the numbers they needed for the day or they were no where to be found. All my co-workers looked annoyed or unhappy. Some stopped caring and just ignored those who walked around or stood behind us making sure that we asked customers to upgrade or get a credit card. I think that was the hardest part of the job. Trying to sell people an upgraded membership. When it first came out, people were willing to try it if it meant saving money. After they had tried it and it did not work for them, they wont be fooled again. If you lose customers trust, they aren't going to fall back into it at your command. So it made it harder to sell and get the numbers the company wanted. Also, selling credit cards to get money off your order, no one wants a credit card with high interest and whether you cancel the card after you apply, it still affects your credit. Not only that, but some of the customers seemed to believe that just because they paid for a membership, they could be very rude to the cashiers who are just doing what they are told to do. I think the most enjoyable part of this job was just the co-workers and sometimes the customers. The turnover rate was kind of high in the place so there were a lot of new faces to meet. And sometimes you would get the customers who were willing to joke and connect with you rather than see you as just a lowly worker.
