A positive workplace, rich in interpersonal relationships, and an environment that fosters teamwork, encouragement, and the satisfaction of hard work.
Head Cashier (voormalige medewerker) – West Dundee, IL – 9 maart 2018
As a head cashier, I would spend nearly all my time on or near the cash wrap. I was responsible for most of the point of sale transactions, returns and exchanges, and membership programs sales. I pushed myself to excel in these things, and I was rewarded and affirmed for my successes in this area. I learned how to break down my sales goal, to make it achievable, and to exceed it. I learned how to inspire and encourage my fellow co-workers. We're a plethora of nerds working there, so there's a lot of overlap in interest and entertainment between employees. Our managers, for the most part, balanced well encouragement, affirmation, and holding our feet to the fire, pushing us to be better. The hardest part of the job was dealing with ornery and entitled customers, which is, I suppose, an occupational hazard. The most enjoyable parts of the job were the friendships I still have with former co-workers and managers, the lessons and diligence I learned in doing the same thing day in and day out, and the good books I was able to whole-heartedly recommend to my customers.
Enjoyable work, good co-workers, great management, salutary sales goals
