Pros: Meet new people
Cons: Time spent on the hard floor is not easy on the body
I enjoyed my job on the floor because I feel like I was making a difference in the store. Each day was a little different and when I left I could see where what I did that day made the area neater, cleaner, and better for the customer. Cashiering is not the job for me however, and with some internal restructuring that wouldn't work with my life requirements, I had to go back to being a cashier and thus facilitated a need for me to look for something more fulfilling. I enjoyed customer interaction, stocking, maintaining a neat and clean work area, rotating the product to ensure freshness and keeping it relevant to the shopper. It's a lot of time on your feet, and can be a lot of heavy lifting, but it's not so bad if you are keeping moving.
