    Pros

    Compared to other retasil jobs, this is more comfortable as there is no requirement to stand up for long periods.

    The job of changing money is relatively easy.

    Cons

    Huge amounts of pressure from management to sell various products to customers, most of whom do not want to purchase these products. This leads to a situation where counter staff are pressured into annoying customers as they push for sales.

    Pay is relatively low compared to a standard office job, and bonuses are practically non-existant, yet the mount of money an individual can make the company in one days work can be in the tends of thousands.

    Working hours are badly managed, with 9-12 hour shifts with only half hour breaks, often very long delays till a break is given (e.g. 7 hours after starting).

    Advice to Management

    Fairer renumeration or adequate bonus for staff would ensure greater job satisfaction rather than the feeling of being taken advantage of.

    More importance on the welfare of staff, and less emphasis on sales of products and performance figures that encourage staff to turn away business that would negatively impact on their averages.
