Pros: Union job.
Cons: Short Breaks.
A typical day at work would include being assigned to a register, ringing in the transaction, accepting cash, checks, cards, and government assistance, and bagging their groceries all at a steady pace. I learned that patience is key with this particular position. The management was always so busy that when I needed them to approve of a coupon it sometimes took up to 5 minutes but this provided me the opportunity to engage in conversation to improve my customer service skills. All of my co-workers were very easy to work with because we all had the same positive outlook on our jobs. The hardest part of the job was to keep all the customers happy when they have been waiting in line for over 30 minutes during a rush but when I started ringing in their items, no one ever got mad at me because I remained happy, energetic, and engaged in conversation which relieved the tension. The most enjoyable part of the job was to have the customers leave with a smile and when they came back they wanted to wait in my line just to have me wait on them.
