Cashier/ Retail Stock Specialist (Former Employee) – Kapuskasing, ON – 14 July 2017
the atmosphere was very fast paced, gogogo, kind of style work when its a blizzard, highways are closed, and you are short staffed for the odd 15 people wanting showers food products and much much more.
Server (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 10 April 2017
The job was fine when I first started but then we would work short handed. Management were bullys. I was willing to work any shift they asked and work overtime but if for some reason I couldn't stay late one shift they made you feel bad about it. They best part were the customers I love people. The hardest was working alone and being overwhelmed by a 300 person restaurant and no help it was difficult. When they had an opening for any other position they tended to hire outside and not promote the serve staff.

Productive, busy , sociable employment, and paid weekly
Cashier/janitorial/kitchen (Former Employee) – Hope, BC – 20 May 2014
On a typical day at work there were things to fix, either a till , or a debit machine , or the pumps went offline , so we had to work together. I learned teamwork , and developed patience and a sense of humour Management was very friendly The hardest part of the job was helping people who were waiting ,when they needed to get going. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know where people came from, the tourists from Austria, Sweden, Germany, etc.
It was always busy with customers. Learnt how to deal with very angry truck drivers. Management was ok and so was the co-workers. Hardest part of the job was dealing with angry truckers who's fuel cards did not work. Dealing with customers.
Front Desk Service/Cashier, Maintenance (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 24 July 2013
When I come to work I start with asking my co-managers what they need health with. I am more than one thing at the store so whatever important needs to be done first I do it. I am always learning new things and with training other people as well, I learn different learning types.
My co-workers are always fun to be around and being close with some of them makes work comfortable.
The hardest part of my job is when I am asked to do too many things at once. I do try to just stop and think what the most important thing to do first. But, the most enjoyable part of my job is everyone being so friendly with each other and the managers there are always there to help.
Semi-productive place with too many members of management
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Kapuskasing, ON – 3 April 2013
a typical day at work is dealing with too many members of management that all have different ways of doing this and follow different policies and procedures. As a shift manager, this is very conflicting. However, on the good side more managers means more people i can ask questions to, get direction from and also learn from. I learned alot about petrolium systems and laws regarding them; how things need to be done on the fuel management side and troubleshooting. The most enjoyable part of my job are the people I work with; they make the mood of the place bright and fun!
