Pros: friendly staff, flexible hours
Cons: at times it felt like I was the only part time staff member doing their job
In a typical day at work I would maintain the quality of the department, whether that be through careful inspection of the produce on display or through the organization and management of the backroom. What I did during the day would depend on the manager working that day.
I learned valuable organization and communication skills, and I developed a strong ability to work under pressure.
My co-workers were very friendly and agreeable people, however at times they were too friendly and would spend too much time talking to each other while there was a lot of work that needed to be done. While that may have been frustrating I never let it distract from my work and I also maintained excellent relations with all my co workers.
The hardest part of the job was working through peak hours, it became stressful at times, however looking back I found these times to also be the most enjoyable because I felt that my work was being appreciated. During slower periods I often found myself helping other departments that were understaffed.
