Customer Service (Former Employee), Cloverdale, BC – June 17, 2014
Pros: full time hours, pay, vacations.
Cons: unhappy customers.
Working in the bakery department of PriceSmart Foods allowed me to gain time management skills and getting orders out on time by a certain deadline. A lot of creativity was required when decorating cakes and other food items based on customers ideas and needs.
Stressful environment & not fair in giving shift work
Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee), Surrey, BC – April 17, 2015
Pros: Benefits & Vacations
Cons: Favoritism exists especiall when it comes to "white people"
Stressful There are biases existing There is almost little or no recognition Blaming is common I was charged with an offense which was not proven existed 2 Male Supervisors "lied" telling me I should have been written off for leaving a customer but I was on holidays that time. Most of the employees cannot be trusted & only a few are real people or friends Back biting is common
Food Clerk (Current Employee), Burnaby, BC – December 12, 2013
Pros: most of the staff are good
Cons: open availability
The people and customers were all different but that is was makes the job rewarding, there is to much management and overall disorganized to many chiefs no enough Indians, they treat everybody like children – more... and there is favoritism, it is supposed to be based on seniority but it isn't they want open availability and offer nothing,and the management lies, so good luck the jobs themselves are straightforward! – less

somedays can be very busy but i learned that you need to be calm and relaxed, because if you get uptight and frustrated then you will be having promblems with cutomers and line ups..i find in every work – more... place that there will always be co-workers who like you and dont. the hardest part of the job is handling customers who get mad at you and swear at you.. enjoyable part of the job is hearing that you did a great job.. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), White Rock, BC – December 12, 2012
Pros: work place has a great energy
Cons: small amount of hours/shifts
A typical day at work is busy, hectic and I am always meeting new people! I have learnt a lot, I learnt how to deal better with un happy costumers, how to work at a pace to make everyone happy and how – more... to enjoy work even when your having a terrible day. My management team is great and are always helpful. My co workers are even nicer and we all get along well. The hardest part of my job is multitasking while working fast, but I am getting very good at it. The most enjoyable part is the people I work with and the costumers I interact with. – less
