Good for awhile but policies can annoy

Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee)

ProsWorkers can be great
Great starting job
Pay is what is expected
Somewhat easy to get days off although not always what is wanted
Sometimes get to enjoy the customers you meet
Gain valuable experiance
Good for when your in school

ConsManagement can be annoying
Change in policies often
Get very picky with what can and cant be done
Treated as lower
Above and beyond work is not always recognized
Secret Shopper is a very large inconvienence to everyone. This in my opinion, hurts more than helps
Sometimes its learn things yourself with little direction.
Even if you do more work then employees, all you may get if lucky is a good job. Rarely anything special.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the workers a bit more freedom such as self checkout and try to make what is expected more obvious. New employees can sometimes be thrown into it with no idea of whats going on. The secret shopper program is a decent idea but when management uses it as threats to various employees, then it is not a great idea anymore. Try to maintain similar policies too, don't change them every couple of months.
