Nice customers and coworkers, poor pay and scheduling.
A typical day at work was exhausting. Standing for 8 hours is hard, especially when cashiering because you have to stay in one place. The atmosphere of the job was really happy and friendly though. It was my first real job, and it definitely taught me that working isn't easy. Management was very nice, and I felt like they really tried their best to keep me happy, but ultimately the changes we all wanted were out of their power. The hardest part of the job was probably collecting carts. On a hot or busy day, it was the worst thing for sure. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to and helping nice customers, and sharing the pain of the job itself with my awesome coworkers.
