Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 17 October 2017
my location was horrible, located right beside a seniors home, so only older folk would come in and do their shopping in change. Everyone in that mall was absolutely miserable, the management on the other hand was really relaxed and respected employees opinions most of the time, but other times they would treat new employees very poorly, but I learnt to have a voice, and took it upon myself to use that opportunity to realize how I should treat poeple/ respect people
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 May 2016
there will be times where you won't see a day off for 2 week stretch if unlucky and your store is "outside mall" , exposed to the elements. company expects a lot, but gives little. non-competitive pay for the amount of work expected from us.

Stocks Person (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 18 November 2013
At Kin's Farm there is not a lot of skill involved to be a stocks person. If you have eyes and are mobile you can do this job. Being a stocks person requires a meticulous eye when it comes to checking for quality control. Basic knowledge of how to pick ripe produce also becomes commonplace especially when customers ask you what to look for. Job is very labor intensive. I would recommend this job in the summer. In the winter the back doors are left open and only the cashiers get a heater.

I really appreciate Kins gave me this opportunity to let me step in this exciting and competitive retail business. First thing in the morning: Set up the displays, attract enough for make people dropping by and bring the grocery home. I will make sure our pricing and quality of course stay competitive compare with my neighbor (Walmart and Superstore). Price check is must so that I know how to set up the display to attract my customers and achieve my stores sales target and margin. I love my team and enjoy working with them together.

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Langley, BC – 31 October 2012
When the first day as a cashier in Kin's farm market, the employee are very nice to help me and give me more chance to practice. I'm pleasure to this. From their nice guiding, I learned everything to follow up company standards with very importance. As a cashier I need calculate very well without careless, at the same time I learned how to calculate quickly and correctly. During this workplace, I felt the hardest part of the job is load heavy stuff from the truck, but now I can handle with it. The most enjoyable part of the job is co-workers help each other very well. I love them much better than other things.
