Pushing carts is not fun
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Richmond Hill, ONJune 20, 2014
Pros: could take you break when ever you like
Cons: where do i start....
All I would do is push carts and collect the shopping baskets. It was the worst thing ever. The customers were just plain mean, you have to work outside in all sorts of god awful weather, 99% of the managers were just plain rude and disrespectful to you and there was no opportunity to advance within the company. The hours were terrible 8 hours a week. – more... The work it self sucked. You have to clean up all sorts of spills and messes including plunging toilets and cleaning the bathrooms. The people there were ok but the customers were the worst. Leaving the carts everywhere not caring about it and they were so rude. As soon and you start your shift you just get depressed and angry, you don't care about anything. That's how bad it was – less

The people are great to work with there. My only problem is that you don't have to push yourself in this work environment.
