Pleasant workplace with fun coworkers and yummy food
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Atholville, NB – 26 July 2016
An opening shift consists of about two hours of prep prior to opening the store. All of the employees work on their assigned tasks and help each other when they can. Workers place importance on maintaining a clean and pleasant environment throughout the day, and operate at peek efficiency during lunch and supper rushes. To create the smoothest transition possible from day staff to night staff, we fill food supplies and paper goods as the customer flow slows down. The evening crew should be able to quickly relieve day staff and provide the same amount of cleanliness at the end of the night.
Because of the location of this workplace I was able to learn the basics of a second language through communicating with customers and asking my coworkers when unsure.
Despite being a family-run store, management does not favour workers above others based solely on relation. The store managers do not belittle employees, but instead are often on the floor helping us make food and ice cream, or serve customers during peek business hours.
Coworkers are incredibly friendly and able to efficiently perform tasks while maintaining amusing conversations.
Dealing with inconsolable customers is frustrating at times, but they are outnumbered by exuberant "kid at heart" clientele who light up when they see their blizzard flip upside down, or smile at a perfect DQ curl.
Free lunches, Reasonable hours, Flexible schedule.
No health benefits or dental plan.
