Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Loganville, GA – June 22, 2014
Pros: free food on people week
Cons: short breaks, no benefits, bad managements
what I learned is managing groceries, stock items, managing a register, and helping out customers when needed. most co-workers are high school students who don't know each other very well. There are no hardest parts of a job except carrying a 120 lbs sofa or table to customers. The retail store has bad management and they always switch every 5 months. – more... I don't have any enjoyable parts of the job since I have worked there for 5 years. – less
Able to stay busy, Interesting customers, sometimes fun

I go to the back of store and start to unload trucks with the forklift and separate the pallets and use power pallet jack to take pallets down off top shelf and then sort the pallets and go to the aisles and stock the store.
