Low pay for Low responsibility
Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Edwardsville, IL – January 3, 2019
Working at Dierbergs was an experience that I will never forget. This job helped me greatly in recognizing aspects of jobs that I do or do not enjoy. A day at Dierbergs for a courtesy clerk includes bagging costumer groceries for around three quarters of the shift. The other quarter consists of the combination of a break and a trip outside to corral the shopping carts. Initially the job is awkward because of the amount of customer interaction when bagging groceries. However, early into the courtesy clerk experience I learned that the job is simple. The simplicity and lack of responsibility are reasons for the low wage of the job. A mandatory union membership further reduces the wage, making it a poor choice for anyone looking to make more than just a few bucks. The reasons that I did not leave earlier included Dierbergs flexibility for this position, friendly coworkers, and personable bosses.
Friendly environment, low skill responsibilities
