Produce Clerk

June - August 2019 • Mount Pleasant, MI

What I liked

The job itself was pretty easy and repetitive, so after the first week it was an easy routine to get into.

What I wish was different

I wish that there had been more employees. I was a part time worker working full time hours every week because they didn't have anyone else to work. My body suffered from the constant heavy lifting and my mental health suffered from dealing with rude customers and a manager that caused me so much anxiety. The also had me switching between first and second shift so often that it was hard on my sleep schedule.

Advice

Make friends with your co-workers. I didn't plan on it because it was just a summer job and the first month was really rough but once I started making friends, I was able to vent to people who understood the struggles that I was going through with the job.
