great colleagues and managers
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Westbank, BC – July 18, 2016
I was recognized after the first week with a pin from my direct supervisor and ASM for my work ethic and my job performance that was above and beyond expectations for someone so new and not fully trained.
A typical day started with going to the back of department and see what my tasks for the day were, and start on them immediately.
I learned time management and how to work as a team for a common purpose, the customers.
The hardest part was when I work the closing shifts I usually finished my tasks before my shift was done. I would help my fellow colleagues with theirs and some would appreciate it while others didn't like how I was able to do it, they figured I shouldn't be working so fast, and thought it made them look bad. So I would usually just do some deep cleaning in the backroom and cooler and write that on my task sheet.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the customers, especially when they were only able to speak French and I was the only one in the department that could. It made the customers feel special and very welcome and they usually looked for me when they came in again.

it was tough to juggle school and my activities, snowboard team, training, and hold to the needs of the contract
