Pros: manager, co-workers, customers
Cons: head office doesn't allow music, it's much harder working in a store where you can't dance a little!
If you're a cashier your typical day at work would be greeting customers as they walk through the door, answer any questions they have and clean up the till area for any random objects that aren't supposed to be there. You ring in the customer's items and wish them a great day.
If you're a key holder you would mainly be stocking the shelves and keeping an eye on the cashiers in case they need an extra hand on till. You clean the store and help the cashiers and count the money at the end of the day; as well as opening the store in the morning.
I've gained a lot of patience with the customers and learned to have great customer service skills.
The store manager is a blast to be with, she doesn't treat you like a number, she laughs and works just as hard as she expects you to work. Friendly environment, she's definitely one of the perks of working at the Dollar Giant.
Of course just like in every job there are people who you like and people who don't like at all. But you just have to mind your own business and remember why you are there. (The money!)
The hardest part of the job is towards the end of the night when you have to close but some customers just do not listen and keep shopping, and when you do you have to sweep and mop the entire store. And it's a big store.
The pros of this job is that you do get to work with some great people, you are always somehow laughing away with either your co-workers or the customers.
I'd give this place 3.5/5
