Casual Worker (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 23 November 2016
A typical day involved counting money for cash register. then either being assigned a register or sent to do stock. If there were any orders that recently came in I would have to tear down pallets and put stock on shelves or in storage area. If there were no orders we were to keep shelves stocked with product in storage. There was also a great deal of cleaning and tidying during the day, shelves, bottles, and floors needed to be regularly wiped or washed depending on what needed to be done.
I learned how a government business operates, and the care and detail taken to ensure peoples needs were met.
Management was very knowledgeable and professional,very approchable, and vigilant about offering the best service and experience to customers.
Co workers were always professional and fun to work with. Everyone always had a focus on getting the job done and done right.
The hardest part of the job was denying people who appeared intoxicated. While against the law to sell liquor to people already intoxicated, it was all based on perception without fully knowing, and it was tough to do.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the customers.
