Casual work environment, good selection, questionable management techniques
Cashier/Stocker/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 14 April 2016
Open store/stock shelves, greet customers, continually face product in between sales to reduce theft and keep workplace looking clean, do shipping and receiving including some acrobatics due to small storage in rear, count out tills, close-out procedures, preparing bank deposits. I learned if every one of your bosses is female, be prepared to do all of the work while they sit in portion of office with no camera for the duration of their shift, only coming out to help customers when lines were ridiculous and customers were getting upset. On one particular occasion I witnessed the store manager give herself two serious head injuries, and would not trust her to sit the right way on a toilet seat, although I believe she is now retired thank god. Other than that, she possessed good business sense but lacked viable communication skills and consistently exercised poor judgement, and was not respected in general. Hardest part of the job was pushing the cardboard cart across Super Store parking lot when there was snow, as liquor stores generate a heap of cardboard waste. The most enjoyable parts of the job were the customers and co-workers, who created a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all but thieves.
Great customers, great employees, good prices.
Gender biased management; dangerously incompetent manager (at the time)
