A typical Money Mart day starts off with preparing to open the store. All money is counted and balanced the night before so that leaves printing the appropriate documents, verifying the closing envelope and ordering anything needed for the follow day. Once the doors open your day is filled with transactions ranging from, cheque cashing, bill paying, money loaning, preparing tax files, wiring money, loading and withdrawing money and everything in between. Although this may sound a little intimidating having a friendly supportive hard working staff makes the job very enjoyable and rewarding. The hardest part of my job has to be handling the large volume of customers in a timely but informative and helpful fashion at peak times. But the most enjoyable part of my job happens to be when its a crazy busy day and things seem like there falling apart but we hold on and keep pushing and everyone gets served and is satisfied and feels like they accomplished what they came to do, especially after standing in line for what probably seems like a life time to them. I learned that people will wait on great service. Just to get greeted with that welcoming smile and served without a flaw. Helping someone solve a problem is rewarding and humbling.That's what keeps them coming back and makes them tell a friend who will tell a friend.
