Great job for starting out in retail

Cashier (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

ProsWorked as a cashier during high school. It wasn't too big, so you really got to know who you work with and it was very family-like. The actual work was never very difficult. Scheduling was very flexible. Relatively high starting salary of 7.95

ConsThe work was completely monotonous. It was sometimes difficult balancing different responsibilities, as your job was split between the register and keeping up the store. Oftentimes it was just you in the store and it gets lonely. Convenience stores have a tendency to attract unpleasant customers. Some of the more recent "GOTHeart" training is impractical to do while you're on the job.

Not much upward mobility with tile/salary. Salary review comes after a year, and as a student I can't work for that long of a period. You're stuck with starting If you work for an extended period, you can move to a "shift supervisor", which pays 9.75 an hour base. After that, you're stuck.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore specialization among employees would be helpful so they're not stuck juggling 50 things at once would be helpful.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
