Flexable with great people, but wage and organization need work
Service Technician (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 November 2018
You will learn how to do a lot of different tasks, but the primary one here is Customer Service. With the wide variety of customers that you interact with, you will learn how to properly meet these variable needs in addition to making them happy.
In addition to customer service, you will learn how to control and manage gas bar pumps and learn how to properly clean and maintain them. You will definitely gain valuable experience at the gas bar, but if you are just starting out, you may not get a lot of hours. There are exceptions, such as a shortage of employees and call-ins. As you work there longer and people more senior to you move out of the position, your hours will improve. Management is okay, but the primary grocery store will often fail to contact your department, even when you page for assistance. When they do respond, they typically handle the situation well.
The major downside to working in this position (part-time), is the wage, which is right at minimum, and the minimal benefits. When you work long enough, you only get tiny wage increases. If you have a good attitude and get things done, it will be difficult to have a hard time with people at the workplace. The coworkers are great to work with.
Great workers, lots of customer service experience, varied work
Low wages, limited benefits
