Cashier and Customer Service, Vancouver, BC - 20 February 2018
A typical day involves helping customers at cash and clearing any obstructions or fallen sales items off the floor. I learned how to interact with customers, how to properly handle cash or credit card purchases, and patience for others. Management itself is alright, they're usually trying their best to help you but more often than not are too busy dealing with customers to have time to assist you. The workplace culture is actually quite nice, the other employees are quite nice and everyone relates pretty well with each other since we all work together in similar positions. The hardest part of the job is keeping your calm while you deal with the occasional difficult customer or the shoplifters that come in all the time due to the area the location is at, since they'll often mouth off at you. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I had worked with and meeting all sorts of people at the till.
