A typical day would be walking in fifteen minutes before my shift, going upstairs to the break room and changing into the shirt they provided us. I would talk with coworkers, usual small talk. Then we would all go down and check what till we were on. We would change shifts with the cashier who was already on it, then start our shift. A couple hours in, we would get a fifteen minute break, or a thirty minute break if we were working five or more hours that night.
When the store closed, we would spray and wipe the tills down, change the garbage bags and lock the doors. Then we would head home for the day.
There was nothing extremely difficult about the job, other than the odd rude customer who was just having a bad day and needed someone to take it out on.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when repeating customers remembered you too. It was nice to have a real conversation with someone in between lots of quick, small talk.
Christmas lunch and a small gift, short hours (6 at most), flexible timetable, friendly coworkers and friendly customers
A specific manager was not kind, rarely listened to anyone unless they wanted something.
