Great after school/weekend job for students

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked at Countdown Cambridge on checkouts for over a year (about 15 months) before deciding I wanted to try something new. The environment was mostly friendly which motivated me to work there for so long. The pay was exceptional, especially for a student, and I was able to buy my first car with the money I earned. A typical day would consist of serving customers, cashing out tills, manoeuvring trolleys, taking out the rubbish and other odd jobs. In this job i learned patience, how to engage with customers, how to handle money and get the most out of my job. The hardest part of my job was probably standing on my feel for 6 hours a shift. The most enjoyable part was learning about customers' lives and different experiences, and being able to earn my own money.

Pros

Great salary

Cons

Long hours and short breaks

Countdown Cambridge Culture

The Culture at Countdown Cambridge is very friendly with all staff working together and helping each other when needed. I never experienced any clashes with other staff while I worked there.

Enjoyable place to work surrounded by all different attitudes

The typical day I had with Count Down Supermarket, was when I discovered a shortage in one of my check-out drawers. I had to run the surveillance video cameras and interviewed the operator. It was sad to let go of so called a good worker on something like stealing and I had learnt more how to stay alert at all time. The management of the business was very fair and the co workers were sharing ideas and help each other when in needed. The hardest part of my job was when I could not achieve any of my customer's products satisfaction and the most enjoyable part was when I learned something new every day

Pros

Recognition rewarded

Cons

Promoted for tasks accomplishment
