Overstaffed and uncooperative management
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 April 2018
As a cashier we always had way too many clerks on shift (3-4 tills open after 5pm when you'd really only need one maybe 2 max). Due to this most cashiers would run out of things to do before noon, as all restocking, refacing, cleaning, returning carts, would already be completed. We were always being scolded for standing at our tills too long, but when we would leave to go reface/do other duties, we would get scolded for leaving the till. Overall the managers played favorites very strongly, and would never give time off if requested (even if it was a month to two months in advance).
Overstaffed, not enough work, slow.
