Good place to start a job

As a cashier you have to be alert and know how to work with money i.e. giving the correct change because you wouldn't want your money to be short when you cash up. Overall, the job is very easy as the screen guides you in what to do.

Pros

Good training assistance

It was a very productive environment. I surely learned a lot while being employed there. It helped with engaging with customers.

I have learned to surely be more patient and also to be extra polite with difficult clients. All you have to do in those situations is be calm and try understand their perspective. Working there also gave me confidence and helped me grow in a more professional way. I have matured in my working environment and will have something to offer at the table. Thank you

Pros

Free wifi

Cons

No discount on foods.

Productive , and fun work place

Regret the reason why left At pnp there is no such thing as a (typical day at work) Everyday there is a day filled with a new experience and a new challege and there is always something new to learn , whether working in the cash office , admin , front line , recieving or merchandising you will always learn something. Management was always willing to listen, give advice and help out in anyway they could Hardest part of the job was remaining focus on a busy day. Most enjoyable part of the job is working as a merchandiser(shelf packer), because you given a task you can use your time sparingly , by packing shelves and communicating with customers without rushing

Pros

Free breakfast

Cons

high pressure,challenging,

It needed a person to be calm,hard working and have accuracy.The Supply Chain was busy most of the time and we had to reach our targets for the day if not the company would lose money.The stock that we were picking had to be at a good quality and quantity.There were some benefits if you reached the targets.

Pros

strict managers, low prices for workers

Cons

long hours, cold conditions and pressure
