Pros: busy and seeing my regular customers
Cons: no lunch breaks, no real chance for advancement
It was a convenience store that was open 24/7, so you can imagine what that was like.
It was a fairly busy store in a small town. I frequently worked by myself or with only one other person. I worked swing shifts, morning shifts, and graveyard shifts.
I loved seeing my regular customers, the workers, the students, watching kids grow older.
This job – more... had a fairly high turnover rate so training the crew was a never ending job.
It could be very challenging to ring up customers, answer the phone, make fresh coffee, stock the cooler, run the lottery machine, the stock the floor shelves while by yourself. – less
