Fast Paced, fun, and a good first job for teens or adults
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Kamloops, BC – January 4, 2013
It's generally the same thing each day, you come in, get some rushes, clean in between, make sure you have things prepped for the next crew to come on, then go home. But things can still take you by surprise, so be prepared for an early or sudden rush sometimes. It's almost like school, but you get paid to do it. Your co-workers are like your friends, some of the managers as well, and sometimes the 'teacher' or head of the store comes in for a bit and helps out or does other stuff. Some managers tend to get full of themselves, especially if they're younger, because they think that since they're one of the youngest managers they can do whatever they want because they're better than other people. There isn't really any hardest part of the job, every position has it's weak points. But if I had to pick, I would say brower where you unload product from the truck. I've never done one, but for the guys who are scheduled for it, their shift is over whenever they finish, so it could take three hours or six depending on how much is on the truck, how fast they are, and how many of them are scheduled for it. Some of my friends actually hurt themselves doing it, not badly, but they were sore for weeks after. The most enjoyable part of the job would be in between work like cleaning or breaks where you can just go at whatever pace you want and can talk to friends and such. All in all, it's a great place to work if you're low on cash or want something to build up some savings for.
50% off meals, sometimes free, shcedule around your life, generally gives you days you book off, tries to help out if you need more shifts by putting you on-call list
fast paced, can be stressful, drunk customers may fight, injuries can occur if not careful
