Steady, repetitive work. Co-workers are great
Pros: flexible hours, good co-workers, friendly environment, good work
Cons: hour cuts, the odd grumpy customer
A typical day at work is pretty basic, serve customers, cut meat, make bulk salads, work on production, face shelves, etc..
Customers are generally well mannered and in good spirits, you get the odd grumpy and disgruntled customers, but for the most part you have more pleasant and happy then the unhappy.
I have learned a great number of things while – more... I have been working in the deli. I have learned a lot on making tray orders and other bulk foods and how to present them in a pleasant and appealing manner. My skills with customers and co-workers have improved significantly and it continues to grow.
I do admit there have been a good number of days where it has not been the easiest to keep a smile on my face but, never to my knowledge, have I ever made a customer feel as though they were unwanted.
My boss is fair and easy to talk to about any issues I might have with my shifts or if I have any questions about what I would be working on.
I would have to say my co-workers are the best part of my job. They are all friendly and fun to work with.
I would say that there aren't really any difficult parts of my job. There are a few things that I have issues with, but those wouldn't have anything to do with work.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that whenever I get a customer that has a problem, or they cant find something that they are look for, and I am able to help them or make a solution and they leave happy. I find great pride when that happens! – less
