Cashier

January 2016 • Arlington County, VA

What I liked

I liked that my job was very flexible with me. I had many extra curricular activéis outside of work and they also allow me to come back from school to work during breaks. I also enjoyed the environment, everybody was friendly and welcoming.

What I wish was different

I wish we were given more benefits.

Advice

Work as much as you can during breaks because when you get to school, money starts going down the drain.

Customer Service Representative

April - August 2020 • Corolla, NC

What I liked

I loved that I got to work for the same company I’ve been working with for 3 years in a different location. Not only was I helping the branch here but I got trained in areas that allowed me to gain even more customer service experience. This experience allowed me to gain a various range of skills that help me now and will eventually carry on into the near future. I love that I got to continue to work with a company who showed they cared even the more during a pandemic. Overall this was amazing because of the location and the great people I got to meet!

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve stayed longer, but I had to return home for my fall semester of college.

Advice

Anytime you get an opportunity to go work away from home, take it. It takes you out of your comfort zone and ultimately pushes you to succeed in a different environment.

Don't let the customers get to you. There will always be an unsatisfied, rude customer but don't take it personally. Make the most of the opportunity to make connections with your coworkers.

Cashier

August 2017 • Mooresville, NC

What I liked

Working as a part-time cashier at Harris Teeter has been lovely. I made some of my closest friends while working there. The actual job is not too difficult, and they train you very well. I felt that if I had any problems or questions I could definitely talk to someone working there.

What I wish was different

Working as a cashier can get really monotonous at times, but that goes for really anywhere you work. You also have to stay at your lane pretty much your whole shift.

Advice

Memorize the produce codes!! They come up so often that it's way easier instead of having to look them up every time.

Cashier

June - August 2019 • Alexandria, VA

What I liked

I liked that is was a low-pressure job having just come off my first year and wasn't really prepared to potentially get a real internship. Even though it wasn't an internship/job applicable to my career field of interest, I still was able to make money and have something for my resume that wasn't just babysitting.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have started looking earlier. I didn't start working until the end of June. So, I basically wasted all of May and June trying to find a job and I couldn't (as time went on it got harder because employers didn't want someone so temporary). It is more difficult than you think to get something, even if it is just working in a grocery store, so start early.

Advice

It is a good first job, but I wouldn't recommend if you want to start with a summer job/internship that's actually applicable to the field you are interested in. I had never had a real job, other than babysitting, so it was fine for me.
