Convenience store, difficult to do well despite hard work.
Pros: good working hours.
Cons: upper management tends to exaggerate when commenting about employees.
During each shift, we start out by doing an inventory of cigarettes, counting the till to make sure it matches reports and a quick inspection of the store. On an average day, I process an average of 200 customers per shift. Throughout the shift, I perform tasks that need to be completed before end of shift so that the next shift does not have to do more than their share of chores.
An employee at this store can learn how to deal effectively with customers, especially when it comes to checking IDs when customer buy beer or tobacco products. If an employee is attentive to his/her job, he should be able to end the shift with a very small variance. This means, counting money more than one time for each transaction.
Management at the company does need work overall. When an upper manager comes into the store, they tend to exaggerate when speaking about the condition of the store. Some parts of management tend to feel that fear is a good motivation tool, when it is proven that it reduces moral and effective employee performance.
Co-workers can be difficult at times to work with. Some employees who know me well know my work habits and are willing to work with me. Others tend to step out of bounds at times to make themselves look good. This often makes the job more difficult than it needs to be. At times, this makes going home the most enjoyable part of the job.
