Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Louise, TX – July 30, 2013
Pros: discount on food
Cons: short breaks
A typical day of work consist of greeting customers, checking them out. I have learned alot working there including inventory social skills etc. My co-workers are easy to get along with very kind and nice. The hardest part of working there is the customer that tend to be rude you just have to learn to over look people and put a smile on your face.
Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee), Cedar Crest, NM – July 25, 2013
Pros: could get most requested days off.
Cons: no set schedule.
Schedule was not set so hours would range from 4 12 hours starting early a.m. to noon. Management could have been better. The co-workers were all fairly friendly but most would always complain about the cleaning and wanting to go home. I did not find any part of the job difficult and the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to assist the customers – more... and seeing theirs smiles. – less
Good place to learn and gain experience from to use in other careers.
Manager (Current Employee), Elk Grove, Ca – July 11, 2013
Pros: mandatory breaks/lunches
Cons: no benefits/no paid holidays/no advancement opportunites.
I have learned from this job to have patience. Dealing with different personalities all day from customers to employees have taught me to be patient. I feel like i run a strict but family like environment for my employees. I learned the fundamentals behind running the show so to speak and love every moment of it. From generating orders for my vendors, – more... to scheduling and doing payroll, from learning how to move different items to improve sales, to seeing with my own eyes sale potential within my store. The most enjoyable part of my job is hearing how clean, how nice, how big, how open my store is and how polite and helpful my employees are. The hardest part of the job is going home. I go home, still call work to give duties and make sure everything stays presentable and runnign smoothly. – less
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Macclesfield, ENG – July 9, 2013
Cons: very long hours
This would involve a basic handover, which would be swapping tills, counting float and signing to confirm, discuss what has been done within the store and what still needs to be done, then over seeing customers using the petrol pumps, authorising them to use them, and then customer pos interaction.
Management was very hands off in this situation and – more... we were basically left on our own to handle customer sales, customer queries, also any problems that arise such as fuel spillages, deliveries which basically meant that we were very stretched. – less

Pros: customer service
Cons: not a safe work inviroment
Ran cash register, stocked, and customer service .Management was different from any I had worked for. Co-workers were fun enjoyable people. most enjoyable was the customers. Hardest part of the job was the stuff going on in the store that should not be going on.
