Decent workplace, okay management.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 30 March 2015
Must be ~5-10 minutes early to open till AT start time for shift,
General Cashier work, scan items, PLU codes, 15min break for every 4 hours of work + 1 hour for lunch if 8/9 hour shift.
Learned about Canadian Grocery systems,
Learned how to memorize many PLU (Price Look Up) codes, quickly and efficiently
Management is okay, some managers are very nice and friendly, they generally leave you alone, but are quick to answer your calls.
Co-workers were good at the time I worked, friendly, help train you, and will inform you about mistakes in a friendly manner.
Hardest part - Memorizing numbers and standing relatively still for long hours
Enjoyable part - Interacting with customers & co-workers
Leave ~5-15 minutes early for cash out,
Easy work, Decent Customers to work with, Central Location
Long & Slow nights, Little to no chance for O/T, little to no chance for advancement.
