Friendly and fast-paced working environment.
Pros: friendly customers and coworkers
Cons: no breaks, expensive low-coverage healthcare
I learned how to use an old style P.O.S system. A typical day at work included coming in early so that my coworker could do paper work and count cigarettes and I would count beginning cigarettes while running cash register and doing/counting lottery. Then I would be alone from around 3:30 pm to 10:30 pm and I would run register, clean, front and face counters, and stock whatever I could in the back. Management and my coworkers alike were friendly but slightly unprofessional (I was advised not to sell any promotional cigarettes to customers if they were the type a coworker or my manager smoked). The hardest part of the job was running register alone without the guarantee of a break. My favorite part is being able to listen to music while stocking. I am very good at stocking and dealing with customers.
