A typical day at work would be to arrive 15 minutes early and open the store, and start on daily routine such as making several pots of coffee throughout the day, counting till, unlocking smoke cabinets, and outside windshield washer cabinets, filling up washer fluids outside for customer use, and for customers to buy, put squigees in buckets, refill coffee cups, lids, napkins, stocking shelves, smokes, pop, chocolates, candy, writing down what needs to be ordered , counting smokes , cigars, snuff at end of shift, counting till, and doing end of day paper work.
I didn't really learn too much at this job, it was all straight forward things ive done before when I worked at 7eleven.
management was hardley around. they just came to do paper work from previous day , and pull out the smoke cartons I needed to fill shelves in front.
I usually didn't work with any other co-workers, except when I was training new employees who were going to work on the weekends, or evening shift.
The hardest part of my job would be when it gets really busy, and theres a line up, and I have to use the bathroom, and there is no other co-worker to help me manage the till at the time.
The part I enjoyed the most about this job, was meeting new people , making small talk, and socalizing with the regular customers.
I also enjoyed making a lists of things to do for the day and setting goals for myself, and rushing to get everything done before my shift was over.
having to wake up early, and be at work for 6am
