I like the majority of who I work with but the non existence of training can really hurt your work performance sometimes

Pros

I like my coworkers. They don't overwork you hours wise, and you are pushed to take your breaks and lunches on time.

Cons

There is hardly any training except for on the job training which may not be very good, depending on who is working on your first day. You have to get to know the store by walking around and putting things away which isn't an option most of the time as a cashier. Even when you do get to know the store it changes constantly and things are always moving around which makes it difficult.

    Pros

    Teamwork helps immensely while assisting customers. Staff have a good attitude, and the customers always come first so they are also usually in a good mood.

    Cons

    You must be able to be on your feet for long periods of time, kneeling and reaching a lot. There is some physical demand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It seems to be working.

    The Actual work was fun and challenging, but I had issues with the way things were run/organized/scheduling.

    Pros

    Fun environment, interesting customers.

    Schedule was posted only one week at a time, and usually with little notice, subject to change frequently. Little to no training.
