Deli Clerk Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Deli Clerk?

Deli Clerk in Manchester:
"Overall Job."
Pros: Hours are flexible, the people I work with day to day make my job incredible, and the customers that are regulars that you eventually look forward to seeing when they come in.
Cons: It can be extremely stressful, we can have 25 people waiting, with a 40 plus minute wait time. Each of those people are staring are you, and many are starting to get very angry and impatient. I've had a few customers throw things at me when they were not satisfied.
