Pros: not many except pay
Cons: the list is endless
Not only were the duties of a cashier exhausting and mentally straining, but the company didn't back me at all when I needed them to. I started as Full-Time with no benefits, went to school and worked Part-Time until finished school then asked to be put back on Full-Time. I was only ever Part-Time so that when it came time for an old injury to come back and I ask for light duties, they don't give me anything, therefore left hourless and broke with a mountain of student loans. Because it was a new store, expectations were through the roof and people were quitting right, left and centre. It's a grocery store...as long as people are leaving satisfied and continue to come back, I'm not going to perform circus tricks and sacrifice my physical health just to get better audits and make you look better. When I was hired I was told I would be moved to customer service within 2 weeks. Did that happen...no! I was told I was an excellent cashier with one of the highest ring times in my store and reoccurring customers always likes coming through my till. Didn't matter to my boss as he already had his biases towards me so nothing would promote me. Oh and there are no benefits to working here unless your a manager, a suck-up or have no self-value. Let's just say don't ever work here unless your in high school or desperate. That's the only reason I've stayed this long is because it's really hard to find a position in the profession I graduated in.
