A good place when you're a teenager
Cashier (Former Employee) – Brentwood, CA – March 15, 2019
The job itself was easy and rewarding. I had a lot of regular customers that would come in and were pleasant to interact with. The hours were great and management scheduled me around my school schedule, which was very helpful. The pay was decent for the job I was performing. Management was hit or miss, sometimes they were helpful and sometimes they were awful to staff. It really depends on the shift you're working and which store you're at.
This particular store was full of nepotism. The owners would have management harass staff to get them to quit, or eventually end up fired - so that they could in return hire a family member to take their place. Owners were also very unaware of the day to day operations in the store. They would come in to just charge a ton of merchandise to their accounts and leave. That was the extent to their participation of the actual store operations.
Overall, most staff was very friendly to work with and the customers were pleasant. However, the owners of this establishment (and they own a few other locations in the area) are not the greatest people to work for. This would be a great job for a student, or someone that wants minimal responsibility.
