Cashier (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC30 March 2014
Working as a cashier at Thrifty Foods is enjoyable and rewarding. My purpose in this job is making sure customers have a successful shop as well as experiencing tremendous customer service.
A typical day is greeting customers with a warm smile and a polite attitude. Ringing through products and memorizing various and numerous numeric codes, and placing products in bags. If customers need assistance with their groceries, I am more than happy to help place their bagged groceries into their cart, and proceed to page for assistance to their car.
If the day seems to be slow, each of the cashiers are able to do chores such as cleaning the monitor screens and wiping the doors and windows.
My management and co-workers are friendly and generous people who only want to see you succeed and do the best you can do at your job. Employees and management are all friends, work well as a team, and works hard to make Thriftys run smooth.
The hardest part of the job would be to memorize all the various types of food, and the codes for them. Before working at a grocery store I had not realized there were so many types of apples.
The most enjoyable part of my job would be talking to customers and provide them with customer service that has them keep coming back to our store.
Pros
always fast paced and busy
Cons
wages, difficult hours

Working in the Floral Department was one of the very few jobs that I've had that i truly loved. It was just too bad that the management of the department was really inconsistent.
Pros
The product I worked with

Having to leave that job

Typical day at work is pretty good, if you mind customer service. People are nice and helpful. Training is easy and useful. Hours are good if you want them.
