      Pros

      For instance, if you wanted to work in the seafood department, you would also have to handle the meat department. Most of the time, its a easy day, with few customers.

      Cons

      During December, its rush time especially in seafood and meat department. Every closing shift the ice needs to be removed from the ice table. It takes at least 15 mins to do, its a bit hard to do, if your not used to doing heavy work. But gradually you get used to it.
