Tom Thumb has a work environment suitable for anyone to succeed, but requires focused associates who are willing to work together to accomplish goals set for the store specifically or a company as a whole. I learned management skills, schedule writing, cash-handling, compliance, multi-tasking, administrative duties, sales forecasting, customer service, team work, collaboration, and many other skills. The hardest part of the job was the fast-paced environment that required constant to-do lists and being able to motivate the coworkers in the building. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with people (coworkers and customers both) and being able to see the hard work put into the job pay off in the long run.
Rewarding, constantly learning a new task or how to do a well-known task more efficiently, friendly people
Short breaks or no breaks some days, high stress, lack of teamwork sometimes
