I worked in the deli, dealing with the cold foods.
I had to fill the cabinets, use the machines to cut and slice the ham and luncheon.

I used the oven, i put the chickens in, i wrapped and packaged them.

i served the customers with customer service.


The most enjoyable part was serving the customers.


The hardest part was dealing with the customer complaints.


I lest there as it was not enough hours.
Pros
serving the customers
Cons
customer complaints

my review on countdown is that it is an open space to be around. it is a place where most people come and which is great and many opportunities are available there, it is a place where you can meet a lot of people and just be able to feel apart of the environment. but this is what I love about countdown is that they can just be per light and caring.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
medium hours not after 9pm

I love the work, but over the years it's been getting harder and and less staff to with or to help.
Co-workers i've worked with are very polite and loving.

Everyday is always a challenge for myself as i run the second biggest department in a supermarket and only me, as for other departments they have 2 or more. The hardest thing is to try and do our daily routines and extra when you only have 9 hours, but i always stay back to try and finish, but it just drains me out, especially if i have to go and pick my daughter etc.

I love the people i work along side and our day to day customers even our locals. Always an honor to serve them.

Management needs alot of work, but most of them are really good to work with.

I've learned alot from this job from the day i started till now and still learning.
Pros
Special events
Cons
very long hours

I learnt a lot of the streets and how to get to places faster in Lower Hutt. The hardest part about the job was walking up lots of stair with crates of groceries. The enjoyable part was finding my way around the area as I have originally have come from Kaitaia, Also loved to get to know new friendly people. This job is not a paid job as I am only doing this work for work experience for driving but am now trying to get myself out in the work force. I am doing a course as well which has put me thru my HT so I am currently holding a class 2 license.
Pros
Work experience
Cons
2 days a week
