Very fast and demanding

A day at work was filled with speed and not much time to laugh. I sometimes felt I was not challenged enough and the culture was very serious. I enjoyed time with work colleagues and love people.

Pros

Got lunch every day

Cons

Hours very demanding

demanding

Econo Foods's job is very demanding because we work in very cold conditions with no proper ppa.No fridge allowances are paid and the management is not keen on making positive changes.

Pros

no lunch for loaders.

Cons

overtime hours are not paid.

Productive and exciting place to work

A typical day would involve me going out to meet people to introduce to them a new stamp system that Econo foods was introducing to help clients save money. I would then verbally report back to the Owner of Econo foods. it was a four month contract. I learnt good interpersonal skills. How to communicate with people to get your message across and how to do sales. I got along well with the Owner. The hardest part of my job was the walking around. The most enjoyable part of my job was closing a sale.

Cons

walking around
