Simple job with minimal plant interaction
Cashier (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 5 December 2017
Being a cashier at GardenWorks, for the most part, would be boring, which made me look for things to do. Tasks were quite repetitive and ringing up the purchases was not always as easy task as we had to remember codes for certain plants and items. I liked the breaks that we were able to have during the shifts and how I could handle some of the plants. The part I disliked about the job was how hard it was to make friends. There were already cliques and I felt like I was in high school all over again; surrounded by all these high school students, who at times would be immature. It was also difficult to bring a packed lunch all the time. I didn't appreciate the slack that some of my co-workers portrayed.
