    Pros

    Although i cannot tell you what its like to be a cashier or any other type of job they can provide you with i can tell you that being a courtesy clerk is a pretty easy job overall compared to music and its very interactive and gives you experience with customer service and store maintenance.

    Cons

    You're a courtesy clerk so basicall you're everybodys b****. Which can be frustrating as you may feel like you do a lot more than anybody around there and they dont appreciate you. Although this may not be the way it is everywhere i just know that with me experience i did not feel appreciated with how much work i did for everybody. Which includes, Store maintenance, bagging groceries, bringing in carts, and go-backs.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your COurtesy Clerks!!! They do a lot of work.
