Fun job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Easy work. Worked late alone and that could be scary. For t a first job I was a little while intimidated being alone in a convenience store. Had to keep track of inventory. Keep track of lotto sales. Prepare coffee. Clean and organize

Don't do it

I have nothing good to say. It was horrible and I don't recommend anyone working there ever. The hours were long, management was horribly inept, pay was pathetic, responsibilities far outpaced the compensation. Favoritism among the staff, no loyalty or cohesion, and overall the worst job experience I have ever had. I resigned and the supervisor still pressured me into working one more day.

It's sn alright place to work

It was okay to work for them, but the company has been bought out by Circle K. I'm not sure if things are still run the same these days or not. Relaxed environment.

I disliked this job

The employer is a good company but the managers in the company were very unfair and did not give the opportunity to grow. Work hours at times were very unstable.

Pros

Chance to improve customer service skill

Cons

Bad management

Day with Deluvia

A typical day at work consisted of me setting up my display table and making fresh dip products for the public. I only had one coworker during this temp job however, I was able to get into contact with management if needed. My coworker and I had a very close bond. He took me under his wing and taught me everything he knew. The environment was very relaxed for a shopping center. The hardest part was also the fun part which was to sell this dip product to the public. It helped me sharpen my people skills and learn new ways to selling a product.

Pros

breaks

Cons

temp job

Fun and reliable Company that is Family oriented.

I would like to find a company that promotes within, will value the opinion of their employees along with respect their employees for the work they put in. I am also looking for a company that understands that their are times that things happen with families.

Pros

Promotes within, benefits

Cons

disrespectful

Cashier

I enjoyed this job tremendously, the location that I worked in was a small town that would usually have the same customers on a daily basis. Getting to know each one and what they wanted was great, feeling as we were all family. The company was doing its best as at that time the economy was struggling.

Pros

the customers

Cons

leaving, store being sold

Positive workplace

Changing gas prices, maintaining cash register, stocking shelves. I learned to check inventory. Management was supportive and hands on. Co-workers for the most part were eager to work and knowledgeable. Hardest part of the job dealing with irate customers. Most enjoyable part stocking the cooler.

Work Environment

Great place to work besides a decrease in hours available. Meeting new people everyday makes it a great environment to work.

interesting

I went thru more managers in 2 years then I have gone thru at any other place that I have worked. I went thru 11. The current manager is no good, does not have any clue what he is doing. Co-workers are really quite crazy. The hardest part of the job was going to work and the most enjoyable part of the job was the customers.

Pros

customers

Cons

management

I really did actually like working here until the latest manager arrived

I could work and go to school at the same time, what more could I ask for? A typical day at work was the same old stuff every day and the same old people buying smokes, beer and blunts. What I learned is that I really didn't want to do this for the rest of my life.

Pros

hours

Cons

management

terrible

awful place to work at. All the managers are nasty to the staff and don't care about your safety you work 10-12 hours all by yourself in a gas station, just waiting to be robbed

Great surroundings made up of co-workers and customers

Interaction with my customers on a day to day basis is what makes work worth doing. The smiles that I can give them and that they give me truly make this job worth it!
