Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Edmonton, Alberta (Ellerslie location) – May 2, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: wasteful, felt like i couldn't advance, some managers were not good to work with
Being a meat clerk i usually worked early mornings or late nights. My duties included preparing all the meat/seafood, changing product, changing prices, facing, stocking the back, cleaning, preparing food, and clean up.
Least enjoyable part was being allergic to the majority of the seafood section and feeling sick on the job. Most enjoyable to me was – more... talking to returning customers and hearing about their experiences.
Management was excellent except for the few power hungry superiors who seemed to enjoy bossing the part time employ's. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), West Kelowna – January 24, 2014
Pros: good at my job
Cons: product code memorization
The Hardest part of this job was to learn and memorize all product codes for each fruit or vegetable. I loved to be a cashier and converse and help customers. I was able to have them memorized but that was the most difficult for me. I spent nights upon nights studying the product codes.
One night i was closing and the last cashier to be at the cash – more... registers and a family came through my till. They were looking for a certain item and I had helped them find it. They happened to be out of town and I pointed them in the right direction. As my manager watched, she gave me a free lunch card afterwards for all the customer service I showed – less
