Cashier

June - August 2021 • Westlake Village, CA

What I liked

Loved the people who worked here! The head cashiers and managers are very supportive and it was a fun environment to work in. My supervisors ALWAYS made sure I took my 15 minute break every 2 hours.

What I wish was different

More relevant and efficient training. There were a lot of topics that did not apply to my position and took 5 shifts.

Advice

It's overwhelming at first but you quickly learn the items and gain confidence. Just act like you know what you're doing (and check with your head cashier).

I wish that there had been more people to help in the bakery, as we were often short-handed.

Advice

To not be afraid to try something new. I came into the job with no experience in baking and came out of it with lots of new skills, and due to committing myself to the job I was able to succeed in it.

What I liked

The hours are flexible and the atmosphere is laid back. The people are friendly and earnest.

For the amount of time I spent with this company and the hard work I poured in, I believe I could have been compensated a little better for it. There is a notable lack of opportunities for upward mobility as well.
