A Great Starter Job if You Love People
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 21 April 2019
It's a great starter job if you like working with customers and people and if you like being very organised.
Teamwork is a key aspect to the job as everyone learns from each other and work together esp. on busy days and you will take on different tasks, i.e. registers, packing, inventory or collecting the trolleys, etc.
Two days will never be the same as you will see many customers coming back to you each week to ask you for different things such as where to buy a $1 reusable bags, cigarettes, canned fruit and which aisle the frozen hash browns are kept- - that will give your memory a workout!!!
On the registers, cash handling skills are important and accuracy maintained or have angry customers' on your back.
Customer complaints will happen, ask your manager for more help or details relating to difficult customer's problems. Don't be afraid, that is all a part of it!
The only downside to this career is that most workers are only
part-time/or casually employed which only really suits the student. If you're not a student you will prob. most definitely need to find another job to sustain your income.
People Job, use cash register, fun, meet new people, work with good managers and staff
Part time, casual employment only, difficulty balancing your life if you are oncall, low wage
