Clerk/Cashier in Abbotsford, BC
Good people and easy work.
If you're willing to tough it out for the first few months being on call, it's well worth the wait. It doesn't take long to get full time hours but I'd recommend working two jobs including this one until you build up enough seniority to get full time hours.

No one cares about anything
They will training and promote you and then without warning and for no valid reason, cut your hours to nothing and start traing another person. This pattern seems to repeat itself monthly and as a result, staff morale is low.

Toxic Work Environment
When you're coming from the outside, there's a stigma attached to you, you're seen as an enemy that has stolen a job from someone from within. There is very minimal training given to you, which will always come back to bite you in the rear as they'll always hand to tasks and assignments in the Store that required training on systems, which then you are training yourself to complete those tasks. It's also against the rules to defend yourself when customers attack you physically, you are verbally abused by customers and if there is a complaint, never expect the company to be on your side, actually don't expect that at all. BCGEU will back you though, fantastic Union.

Auxiliary position is ok, if you can afford not to work very often or have a secondary source of income. Very little opportunity for advancement.
Overall a beneficial learning experience and safe place to work. A lot of customer theft. Majority of the work is working freight deliveries. Not very much opportunity for advancement. Very small raise increases.
Not that great with giving out shifts....
I was given the auxiliary position, basically a call in if they needed extra people to work that day, I would wait 5 days a week from 8:30am-10:00am to expect a call from them, none, and then I would have to wait again at 2:30pm-4:00pm for them. You could go weeks or months without getting a call so that would mean no income or barely income at all, if you don't need that much income, this job is for you, but if you do, I would not recommend this job.
