    "Cashier"

    Pros

    Being a cashier can be an attractive position for people who enjoy interacting with the public. In addition to engaging in conversation with customers while ringing up their purchases, cashiers serve in a customer service capacity by answering questions and helping resolve complaints. During busy periods, cashiers often experience a steady flow of customers through their line, which can make the workday move quickly.

    Cons

    Complains more about the customers than anything else. Pay is better than nothing. I think anyone can have a job and make it into a good or bad thing you can never expect someone else's story to match everyone's story. Different stores have different managers/people/employees so what you may find true in one store you may find it not to be true in another.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly colleagues, great projects, good project experience to be gained, appreciation of efforts, good learning ground for large commercial and hospitality projects

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, constant pushing to work longer hours due to excessive workload, efforts are recognised and stated to be appreciated but not rewarded, systems need to e revisited to realign with current project criteria.

    Advice to Management

    Longer hours do not equate to more productivity, in fact the opposite is proven to be true.
