Cashier (Current Employee) – Commerce, TX – March 30, 2015
I enjoy working at the store. The fellow employees are nice and casual people. The managers know what to say and how to phrase wording so that customers are not upset. The work flow can be brainless but I enjoy rush times where I can keep shelves stocked and help customers with any and most issues that arise. I learned how to run the registers and do returns, book buy-backs and most customer service. If I can not help a customer I always ask them if they would like to talk to the manager in charge. The hardest part is my Tuesday/Thursday's because I am upfront by myself and do not have the ability to roam the store sorting and organizing the stock. I just can stare at is and make a list of what needs to be fixed when a coworker comes in.
fun employees, experienced managers, good hours
skeleton crew at a few hours, college kids complaining about money.
I learned how to conduct a class in the college setting and how to balance my education with my work duties with my professor. It was sometimes hard to get in enough time to study and conduct research with the amount of work required by the professor and the maintenance of the library contained within the office.
