Job was a good job for a student that needs part time work. Pay wasnt great, minimum wage and it was nearly impossible to get 40 hours a week, takes years to get any decent benefits. Not usually the type of job you would make a career out of. As usual working in customer service can be difficult.
co workers worked well together
hard to find replacements for shifts, low wages, hard to get 40 hr/weeks
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Riverview, NB – 24 October 2016
My typical shift at Circle K would be from 3pm-10pm . I learned how to effectively provide great customer service . During the time I worked at circle K management switched over 5 times which was a bit difficult but overall all the managers were great. My Co-Workers were essentially rendered irrelevant because I usually worked alone . The hardest part of the job was doing the essential nightly to-do list due to being alone for the majority of the shift . The most Enjoyable part of the job was the genuine relationships I developed with a handful of customers.

Restocking the store. Learned who to work with a team and by myself, office work, receiving orders, making orders, managing a team and helping out other co-workers. Hardest part is not eating all day and long shift and enjoying being with a co-worker while working.
Great experience, above average quality workplace.
Clerk-Cashier (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 11 November 2015
It was a fun new experience, learning how to man a cash register and dealing with clients directly. Management was stellar and my co-workers were very helpful and friendly. I didn't find this job had a particularly hard part. Most enjoyable part was interacting with clients.
I learned at this job how to improve my customer service skills, how to be more effective with customer's needs.Because, at this work there was a lot of customer and I had to be on my best behavior to make sure that i satisfied their needs. The most important thing I learned is how to handle a situation under stress and how to make sure that my clients always come first.

Assistant Manager and Interim Manager (Former Employee) – Pierrefonds, QC – 4 June 2012
My work days were always very busy which was great for me because I like to be occupied and have full days of work. I learned many useful skills, particularly when I was the interim manager such as, budgeting, ordering, monitoring inventory, training, holding meetings and more. The members of management I worked with were very supportive and agreeable. What I found to be most challenging was managing the employees, it is difficult to ensure the work is done correctly and completely when there is not always a manager or responsible person present.
