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.

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.

Cashier in Ottawa:
"I wish I knew how our Store owner treated his employees."
The best advice I have for a new cashier is to look for another job. Working in this store is like a last ditch effort, when you can't find anything else. Our owner is very rude, and can't make up his mind about anything, making it very difficult to follow his instructions. I wish I could find another job nearby.
