The day i got a difficult customer but i kept mycool and talked the customer down I have learned that people are different and when you are dealing with people you need to be calm and have a way of solving problems without offending the customer my manager was a very calm and understanding person he did not only manage the store but also helped me learn to manage myself and others the hardest part of the job was being a security I enjoyed the busy days most

It was a good experience and if you work hard then it will help. Also the manager was very helpful and because I was a hard worker I became semi permanent from a casual.

Working at pep was not something bad at the end you have the opportunity to see what most people outside think about pep even though it's not like that. It's a hard job title which you have to uphold to.
Pros
Got to meet different people every day
Cons
Long hours

A place with a wonderful culture, where the leaders are selected not because of who you know, but how well you can lead. Also not a company that is afraid to change things up and challenge the norms, as well as their employees.

I've dealt with variety of customers. Ive learned how to handle different kinds of situations. How to work in a group. How to manage a difficult situation. The hardest part of the job was helping a customer that won't understand that you don't have the ability to make decisions that a manager or supervisor is suppose to make. Fun part was when we had to dress up at work.
Pros
Free chocolates
Cons
Long after hours

A hate having an unhappy day at work. I hate the fact when managers let people stay late at work an knowing the environment is not safe. Do not use people tell people you recruit whats the set up at the first time meeting or interviewing the person. Treat evryone equal.

Productive and fun workplace. The communication is good and the people are very polite and warm welcoming. A very nice place to work. the hardest place is the stock room, where we would have to unpack stock but eventually finish off.
Pros
sometimes free lunches
