    I worked at T & T supermarket part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good working environment and generally supervisor will treat their employees with respect, not to push. And if you make some mistake, they will explain to you and let you try again until everything is good

    Cons

    pay is a little low and the chance to get promote is not that often. good to work if you just work part-time. If you are older than 30 with children and work full time, the pay may not cover your family expense.

    I worked at T & T supermarket part-time

    Pros

    Well, the cashier position isn't the best but it does help pay the bills. Can't complain since it's a dead end job. The people around me was nice and management was helpful throughout my training.

    Cons

    Culture - try to adapt to western culture.
    Language - though it's mostly dominated by Asian, employees should know atleast some basic English.

    Pros

    - can meet a lot of people, the team is huge
    - you can feel belonged here (in some ways)
    - salary on time, accurate calculation
    - work is routine and simple once you get the hang of it

    Cons

    - It's tough if you have no working experience
    - co-workers could be nosy, asking a lot of questions
    - not enough autonomy , you have to rely on your supervisor a lot of the times
    - limited career opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Try not to be passive aggressive when giving criticism, be open to communication, be fair in criticisms and don't always give pass to the customers when it's their fault, be assertive in dealing with customers

    I worked at T & T supermarket part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Easy to get hired
    -Nice and helpful co-workers

    Cons

    -Shifts become long (8+) after the first few weeks
    -Breaks are scheduled at unreasonable times (2.5 hours into an 8-hour shift when you are not even tired)
    -High turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Schedule meal breaks (at least halfway through the shift) and short breaks reasonably, so every employee can be well-rested to provide the best customer experience.

    I have been working at T & T supermarket part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is not bad, and there are lots of entertainment activities through the whole year. For instance the karaoke match, Chinese New Year Gala.

    Cons

    Maybe it is not so creative job position for the basic position here.

    Advice to Management

    To try make the work more interesting, more humanistic care there. And the cashier really don't have to stand and serve. Learn something from German, let them sit down.
