Q: What is it like working as a Cashier?
Cashier in Red Deer:
Pros: Gives me something to do and make money, the customers are mostly pleasant, employers are very good and lenient.
Cons: Some awful customers, a lot of the time I'm bored, there's a lot of room to mess up financially.
Cashier in Edmonton:
"Stressful, Semi Flexible."
Pros: I like being able to communicate with people everyday and meet lots of different people. The staff are nice and easy to get along with.
Cons: The Management is neglecting and favorites certain people. Is is stressful 90% of the time. The uniforms are uncomfortable, and standing in mostly one spot all day is hard on the feet and back. When there is an issue and you try to bring it up to your manager they blow it off and tell you to talk to another.
Cashier in Prince Albert:
Pros: What I like most about being a cashier is that it reminds me that not all people are the same and that we can not judge a book by it's cover. Being involved in the community development and fundraising for different organizations.
Cons: The least thing I like about being a cashier is the pay and crappy attitudes (don't shoot the messenger) we are not the company managers, we just sell their products.
Cashier in Kelowna:
"Stressful, fast-paced work environment, poor management"
Pros: The regulars that would come in for their morning coffee. Made some friends there. Most of my fellow employees were very good and fun to work with.
Cons: The stress level. When it gets really busy during breakfast, it is always chaotic. The shortage of staff was really bad too. 2 people to take care of over 50 customers inside add the drive-thru customers. And the way some customers treat us staff. It wasn't good.
