fun, repetitive, busy at times, boring when its not
Cashier (Current Employee), SmithersMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Good Co-workers
Cons: Long hours on your feet.
It is very basic. I worked with great people but I personally didn't feel any self satisfaction. When its slow, ITS SLOW. When its busy, ITS BUSY. People would always call in sick and I would have to cover, but as soon as my hours got cut to 15/ week, my manager didn't have the guts to fire all those people who never showed up anyways.... political bs.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Regina, SKMarch 19, 2015
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: long hours
In Extra foods I always took long hours shifts. I learned to always make our customers happy. The management was fair I didn't have any problems with my supervisors, and the workplace it was really productive. The hardest part of my job was going out in cold weather and getting karts and the most enjoyable part was communicating with people the whole day.

Ok place to work
Grocery Stocker (Current Employee), Langley, BCFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: pleasant co workers
Cons: not getting enough hours
Wish pay was better. Not that fun of a job, but co workers are pleasant to be around. Typical day is either stocking the dairy or going into aisle's and making them look nice. There is no hard part of the job, unless you count minimum wage. The most enjoyable part would be helping customers find what they want and know that they're satisfied. I've learned

Cashier (Former Employee), Kelowna, BCFebruary 9, 2015
I was a cashier at Extra Foods, day to day routine was ringing people through the cash register, handling money and answering customers questions. I learned to work at a fast pace and to keep my cool under pressure. The management was very friendly and helpful when I first started. My co-workers were also friendly. The hardest part of this job was rush hour but after a while I got pretty good at handling it. The most enjoyable part of my job was talking to the customers, everyone was a different character

Comfortable Work Atmosphere
Deli Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee), Smithers, BCNovember 6, 2014
Pros: try new products
Cons: often short-staffed, having a heavy workload
Kept relatively busy. I learned quite a bit on how to run the deli as I was the person in charge when the supervisor was away. I worked both opening and closing shifts and there was a difference in both. Day- made hmr and deli items for sale, put out stock, did paperwork, and helped customers when needed; so I kept busy. Night- did clean up (dishes, garbage, cleaned slicer/service case), and filled up or faced items that looked empty; wasn't as busy-more routine than day. I also mainly did the training for new employees and helped decide on who to hire. I enjoyed the people i worked with, the atmosphere was very friendly. The only issue I had was being short-staffed and having to do catch up on a lot of work that would need to be done.

A cheerful and relaxed environment
Baker (Former Employee), Edson, ABSeptember 17, 2014
Volunteering at the public library was an interesting experience to say the least. A group of teens and I set out to the library every morning during the summer and got ready for the arrival of the children. During the day of planned activities and events, we would read and assist in their learning to read for a couple hours, spread apart, then set upon fun and interactive activities. There wasn't really any management positions, but there was a worker at the public library that helped plan the events and keep the group on the task at hand. My co-workers were young and lacking experience in jobs since we were all in middle school at the time, but we experience what a job could be like and how to handle different responsibilities. The most enjoyable experience during that summer was helping the younger people of the community to learn how to read and develop their learning capabilities.

Enjoyable and valuable experience at Extra Foods
sale associate person (Former Employee), West Vancouver, BCJuly 9, 2014
At first, I had to make sure everything from the day/shift before has been correctly done; then I had to do the tasks which were to be done that day like filling up candy shelves; and of course all of these tasks were to be done while doing my primary duty which was to scan each item at the checkouts. Also there used to be a "deal of the week" which we had to promote to each single customer. Having mentioned all the above, I also was responsible of customer service check out which had a totally different range of responsibilities.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to communicate with both customers and my co-workers through which I developed many skills including team working. After 4 years experience of working at Extra Foods I learned how to set my goals and priorities in life aside from many other skills like multitasking and working under pressure. My managers and supervisors helped me to learn how to be more organized and responsible for the tasks that were assigned to me. The hardest part of my job was to stand on my feet for full shifts, at first; however, as I enjoyed communicating with customers and walking around the store to help them, I was able to overcome this challenge.
