Don't do it.

Cashier (Former Employee) Oxford, AL

ProsCoworkers were alright, although really only saw them during shift change. Hours were fairly regular.

ConsYou are always overworked. There was only ever two employees in my store, a cashier and the manager who was normally out of sight. The cashier would be in charge of running the register, stocking the shelves and cleaning the part of the store in view from the register (which was 4/5 of the store), and cleaning the parking lot and break room. You were never allowed to stand still, even if the store was empty and spotless. The register also required a manager's key for practically everything aside from swiping items and hitting the total. If you accidentally rung up something twice, find a manager. If the manager happens to be on a bank run or lunch when a customer decides they no longer want an item, you are locked out of the system until the manager comes back. Very poor management.

Even saying Hello when… Advice to Senior Management: Managers need to manage the store instead of disappearing. Respond to the cashiers when you are called. Having to call a manager several times is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
