You'll never be board
Convenience Store Clerk (Former Employee) –  Sussex, NB28 April 2017
This place was pretty good to work. In the morning, you would have to go in and count lottery, tills, cigarettes, juices, pop, etc. Turn on pumps and rigger machines, lottery machines. Through out the day, you just need to keep the bathroom cleaned, sweep the floors once in a while, mop up spills and keep counter tops clean of coffee and slush spills. Wash down windows, just keep things clean. Keep tills balanced. ID people coming in for tobacco products. Closing up is just making sure pumps are closed down, sweep, mop, garbage, close down rigger, lottery, debit machines. Count cigarettes. Lock up. Management wasn't too bad. I mean, the assistant manager at the time was much easier to deal with then the manager. But things always stayed on track. The people who came and went were always good to work with. But then again, being a people person helps in every job. The hardest part of the job, just like everyone, is the rude customers who cant be patient with say a new employee, or someone who can't quite get that lottery machine yet. And also working alone at night. The best part was always the regular customers. That seriously was my favorite part.
Pros
Talking to the regulars
Cons
Closing at night

I loved my job at circle k 2 stavanger drive, my co-workers were great rarely had a bad customer , management sucked , the first manager was amazing then a new one was put in his place.. note this is within the few months I worked there.. that manager was great help, then they out of nowhere replaced this guy with some random misses. Treated everybody like dirt , told everyone to fend for themselves. She made it the worst working experience ive ever had...

Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB2 November 2015
Your start your shift at seven am, once you come in you see what your supervisor wants you to work on. Be it cash, orders, or food section. Then you do your job, take your breaks, and have a lot of laughs through out the day.Then you end your shift feeling great, and come back again tomorrow.
Pros
Great co-workers.
Cons
Standing all shift
