The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Pros: flexible schedule, hours.
Cons: communication from management, poor working conditions in hot weather, coworkers taking advantage of you, scheduling process/system.
I worked for one of the locations in British Columbia about 3 years ago. I applied to be a cashier, had a group interview that I thought gave me the opportunity to express and share my experiences in the same position. Trainin was easy too, I was on my own on the express lane for the first 2 days, after, I was then put mostly on the longer/regular tills. It was overwhelming sometimes, as soon as you walk up to your till before you've counted your cash drawer at the beginning of your shift; customers immediately look at you, ask if your opening. a few things that bothered Mr was how CSM's would take forever to get to your till to get help with a customer situation or if your till is short on cash and needed to do a cash back procedure. Other cashiers would purposely put their garbage and hangers in your area because they were too lazy to throw them out themselves in the back on the way to the clock in/out machine. And other department managers, and even the GM was rarely around, when you'd ask questions they had attitudes, whuke tget were busy watching viral videos in the office. Only pros was that I was able to work Saturday and Sundays only so that I could focus on school, and hours and pay was really good too. One other peeve I had was how they used a computer software to automatically generate schedules randomly. Summers were also the WORST, I always felt dehydrated because of the constant, long transactions that would last for hours, my muscles would be in do much pain after work
