Enjoyable staff, Stressful environment
Front End Cashier (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 April 2017
It was a great starting job, figuring out the working world, learning many useful skills for many other fields. The employees were lovely to work with but, similar to other retail jobs, customers can be disrespectful and unpleasant. The best part of my job was consistency, never doubting my role in the company, and being able to help others in need, both customers and co-workers. The hardest part of my job was having to calmly handle aggressive customers.
Management was always friendly, helping with any questions regarding the company. Due to being a full time student, they were very stern on putting school first, having flexible hours available for all employees. They are also very inclusive towards hiring, no matter your race, ethnicity, gender, disabilities, or religion. Always having open arms to those willing to learn and ready to work.
Overall I learnt public communication, memorization, multitasking, team work, organization, customer service, and many other soft skills that are useful towards other jobs.
Making someone's day better, helping others, flexible hours
Unpredictable customers, inconsistent shifts
