There's never nothing to do.

Communication, preparing in advance, great customer skills, quick thinking, great eye contact, a beautiful smile are all key factors to a great day. Keeps management of your backside:). The working environment is diverse and flexible if you have potential to advance, take the oppotunity presented. The hardest part of the day is disgruntal, angry customers, remembering eye contact and empathy, not saying sorry but saying it in form of Empathy and trying not to swear because your honest. Some Managers were on real power trips/ very amusing while, others were good teachers but all passionate about their jobs, at the end of their day they got their work done. From start to fiinish was always enjoyable, there was never a dole moment.

Pros

5% Discount on your groceries

Cons

Standing long hours and disgruntal customers.

Fun and enjoying work place

Being a Check out Operator - there were many perks, all your co-workers were around the same age. This made the environment a fun and enjoyable experience. the management team were lovely, they would always give us feedback form in order for them to improve and would always offer to help if we needed. I was checkout operator of the year five months in a row, this boosted my confidence in this job immensely and encouraged myself to carry on. - the only reason I left is that I had to leave in order to go to university in Dunedin
