A typical day at work, I was either a cashier or a service desk clerk, which involved, refunds, exchanges, money transfers using Money Gram, customer service and information, transactions using cash credit cards vouchers and debit cards. Counting all cash drawers as well as the safe. Counting and selling lottery tickets, recording daily transactions – more... and drawer amounts.
I learned SO much working here. I learned how to use a cash register as a cashier, but I learned most things while working in the service desk. I learned how to till count cash, and add up all of the stores transactions and record them for management, I learned how to transfer money and make money orders, as well as providing customer service and information.
Management was a dream, they always had the answers to your questions and strived to make Shaws a great place to work and shop. They were always understanding and aware of customers needs as well as their employees needs. Schedules were always up on Friday by 3 o'clock, everyone got along great and people were rarely ever 'in toruble' with them. They understood how to make you feel important and involved with their company.
My cowokers there were amazing they are still good friends of mine to this day, there was never any friction between any of us.
The hardest part of the job was how busy it got., and even then it wasn't unbearable, especially at service desk, lucky for me I am always able to adapt to my environment and give it my all.
Everything was enjoyable about that job, if you needed more hours, they gave them to you, they never gave you less than the required 15, unless you asked for it. It was a friendly and fun work environment. I never once had the thought "Ughhh I have work today." – less
