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.
