In the year I worked for Circle K, I did a lot for the store I worked at. The daily routine did get to be somewhat monotonous, but the customers are what kept me going. Being new to town when I started working there, I made a lot of good friends from the other side of the register - I don't mean to brag, but I was a favorite amongst most of the customers. This job taught me a lot about working a point of sale system, handling money, handling food & beverages, and overall customer service. There was nothing too hard about this job, really. Standing for 8+ hours a day would get tiresome, but was never an issue for my bad knees.
