Interesting side job.

I worked there for little over a year, after a small change in management, i discovered the new staff to be lovely, the were flexible and understanding and I believe that any 14-16 year old should heavily consider working there.

Pros

Understanding staff.

Cons

Tiring.

It was a fun place t work and was simple

It was simple and peaceful as well as entertaining because of the fact that I knew most the customers from living around that area, The most enjoyable part of the job is probably that it wasn't stressing or didn't feel like I needed to force anything to get the jobs required done.

fun workplace

A typical day at work was coming home from school at 3pm, relax and eat something then get put behind the counter if my dad was busy stocking the shelves or cleaning. One thing I learned from being a part-time cashier is that if you're being nice to a customer they will be nice back.

I think it would be a great idea for me to work at your store because I love to keep my self busy.

This would be good because I can earn more money to save for when I grow. Paper rounds would be perfect for me because I stay in fresh air and deliver

Productive and fun workplace

I enjoyed working at the corner shop as it was an easy place to work. The shop wasn’t really very busy therefore it was rather easy to handle customers and satisfy there needs. The shop has the stock set out simple therefore when I had to look for a product a customer wanted it was very easy.

Pros

Free products from the shop.
