Sanitation/Housekeeping Team Member, Cashier Assistant was asked...25 February 2015

Hardest one by Nick: You haven't opened at a store before. What do you do when you arrive? If there isn't any higher ups what do you do?

First answer was spot on. Although you may not be expected to know everything, hopefully whoever trains you will notice whatever blind spots you have. Maintenance is interesting in that you are essentially autonomous from Front End (oftentimes interact more with other departments and especially the shift leader), although you do check in with the booth for the VerifyPro (VP walk; ancient name is Gleason which it took a long time until I saw just how that was spelled) hourly. Depends on the store procedure for little things (winter we put mats out in the Northeast region while people just trip on them come spring) and some stores only hire Cashier Assistants (CAs) and you work your way to register. Once you are very experienced, there is pretty much no reason to ever be seen standing. (Coworkers probably would be too nice to say something to leadership on it, but likely nudge you to work.) As for Front End procedures, often cleaning the conveyor (our SanE water sanitizer) during those down times. Just be prepared for some crazy number of call-outs/no-shows at the end of the year in states that have paid sick leave where those coworkers seek to use it up! PS I applied to 52 jobs (stores within ~40 mile radius) over the course of 8-9 weeks. Maintenance was the one to hire me. Word of advice is listen to people in other departments if you wish to switch over or cross-train (plenty of time to think about that) there to figure out what is and is not worth doing. Less

If am in this situation and i have no other option i have to do these. I never be panic i will do this as much i can. For opening a shop every one has a common idea so i will use that idea and i will try to improve with my special ways Less

I agree with the last guy. Awesome advice. But of course, I'm the second guy so that's not exactly the same. But I feel that I can trust the first guy, if you know what I mean. :P Less
