Pretty much exactly what you’d expect. For the most part, I picked things up and put them back down. Sometimes help customers. If you’re jumpy, like most ASD people or anxious types, customers can startle you or make you quite uncomfortable sometimes, especially at first. It does get easier though, and eventual you go into mind numbing manual labour autopilot. Manager positions are slightly more interesting
Shifts were predictable once you recognized patterns (early evening rush, weekends, memorizing and predicting flyer changes, seasonal changes, holidays), but tend to vary significantly in pace and stress of work. Closing on a Tuesday may be dull, but Saturday afternoon is obviously busy. Flexibility would be important.
Stacking or working overhead stock can leave you quite sore especially in produce, lifting I g 20-60lbs is common (up to dozens, 100+ times per day
Hand jack use, especially when moving skids
Minor computer use, basic label making program use
Schedule is one week at a time, which can be difficult to schedule personal like around
Easy, basically get paid to work out, my back and arms look great, straight forward work, a lot of nice people, easy to pick up groceries after work tbh
Culture varies store to store, high energy needs, short notice when receiving schedule, low pay for highly active work, occasional rude customer
