Productive and a fun experience working with other people
Working at Kmart was a really good experience as I was able to collaboratively work with a group of people. During my shifts, I was faced with challenged such as customer complaints and disagreements, an overload of customers and an occasional a messy work environment in peak busy hours. The managers were very friendly and cooperative with employees and they managed to help us whenever we had a problem. Overall, I learned valuable skills such as time management, organisational skills, communication skills, problem solving skills, customer service skills, and conflict resolution skills. Most shifts, I would work at central checkouts or self-checkouts which is very customer based. I had to make sure everything was clean and in order with minimal problems. On many occasions working on self-checkouts, I was required to manage the team at checkouts and ensure that everyone was productive. I mostly enjoyed being able to work with a range of different people that came from different schools and areas.
