1) A typical day at work: You stand all day on your feet looking after the store and deterring potential thieves/preventing theft
2) What I learned: Customer service skills, teamwork and working alone, proactivity, etc.
3) Management: Satisfactory. They help you when you need help, but they ask for overtime a lot, so much so that I've even heard that one of my colleagues was forced to do overtime (which is rare, however).
4) Workplace culture: Basically working in superstore as security. Nothing special.
5) The hardest part of the job: making sure that you have 100% A.S.C.O.N.E (Approach, Selection, Concealment, Observation, Non-payment and Exit) before you stop a customer. Also standing on your feet all day is difficult at first, and will possibly lead to feet ailments (ie. athletes foot).
6) The most enjoyable part of the job: Honestly, the only enjoyable part is knowing that, when it's a few days until payday, you know you're getting your paycheck!
Long lunches which are paid, stable job, no experience needed.
Not enough staff - often asked (sometimes forced) to do overtime, money is minimum wage.
