Decent for entry level, but I worked nightshift
Gas Sales Attendant, Night Shift (Current Employee) – Ottawa ON – August 30, 2012
The demands of being a Gas Sales Attendant are much more than many would expect. Many believe that it is a simple day at work standing behind a cash for your eight hour shift. It is much more than that. You are assigned a variety of duties that keep you busy for the majority of your shift. Also, since Gas is something that the majority of the population demands, and the sharp increases in gas prices, be prepared to handle complaints about being overpaid and responsible for fuel price increases. Theft is also a concern, from people requesting loans for cigarettes, to people stealing gas by not paying it is a job that requires you to be rather attentive. I worked night shift so theft was a low concern, as I handled no more than 4 customers in the store at once. People are also not in a hurry, so they are open to a chat and I know many of my regulars by first name. Like many entry level positions, the pay is enough to keep you living, and the work is something you do not need to be too bright to do. I would recommend this job to many people, especially night shift as it much more stress-free than the afternoon shifts I used to work.
