Being a cashier was an easy summer job for me. I was attending school and needed a summer job. It was quite easy, I ran groceries through the till for customers and after each shift I counted the money and gave it to the head cashier.
was cashier (Former Employee) – Cardston, AB – 21 January 2018
I was no happy with the atmosphere of the other workers, do to there overall lack of ambition in all there in employees and the way all managers treat there employees like there personal tug matts there for use only when they need it when it comes to there days off. The dictation of other people whatever there ethnicity in the treatment and the bringing of there personal feelings towards someone and spreading it like truth to others and lack of respect.PS-Only in the extrafoods in the town of cardston.
Extra Foods is a corporate retail food store. The union (UFCW Local 832) that has been in place for many years has relished some of the greatest benefits and salaries imaginable to a grocery outlet. Long-term employment has its upsides.

Asst. Department Manager (Former Employee) – Ponoka, AB – 13 December 2017
Coming into work and completing tasks the previous shift did not complete.
I learned that good communication was important in the work place due to the lack of it, and i also learned a lot about agriculture that i did not previously know and about proper nutrition for cattle.
The upper management was easy to work with one on one but my direct management was pour at communication.
the work place was a competitive and discouraged proper team work but also had its pros with the constant learning.
the hardest part was always looking what needed to be done because it might have or needed to be done to lack of communication.
