Decent job, bad environment (specific location)
Cashier (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 23 May 2019
I actually liked the job itself most of the costumers are nice and fun to talk to and it's physically very easy, if you can handle power trips and highschool like cliques and gossiping it's fine.
My least favourite thing about the job is that they use humiliation as a tool in training, They would speak to you like child or sometimes insult you infront of costumers or literally tell them that you don't know what your doing or that they're sorry that they had to deal with you, there was two times where it was so out of line that the costumers had asked the manager to leave me alone. They make you feel like an idiot because your not as fast or as knowledged as them when they've been there for years and your on your second week. How are you supposed to improve if they scare you out of asking questions?
They also lie about how many hours they'll give you in the interview I was told 30 to 40 but got 15 or less and it was mostly 3 and 4 hour shifts, they'll sometimes ask you to come in early or stay later but if you can't they'll accuse you of lying and make you feel bad, One of the times I was babysitting my 2 year old nephew and couldn't come in 4 hours earlier then I was scheduled and the manager who called suggested that my aunt come home from work independently so I could come in, when I said that wasn't possible she said that I must not be willing to work 8 hour shifts.
Costumers, Easy on your body
