    My experiences

    I was brought on as a Cart Attendant (didnt apply for that position, and had plenty of experience in the food industry). As much as I thought I would hate the job, I actually started to enjoy not having to deal with my GSTL all the time. I was hired around Christmas time as a seasonal worker, so bear this in mind. During the days leading up to Christmas, I picked up a few cashier shifts. During these shifts, without trying to sell them, people were coming to me asking about the RedCard. Well, during those Christmas shifts I managed to get a very high score for those stupid cards. They decided that, without informing me, I was now going to be a cashier. When I found out that I was no longer going to work Cart Attendant, they simply told me “We feel you excel as a Cashier a bit more than cart attendant.” I dont ask the “guests” if they want the card, so my score has since plummeted. I get brought into the office every week to be coached on how to “help the guest save 5%”. Im always told I dont smile or appear happy on the lanes. Well no shit! Im suffering here! I want to be outside getting carts or doing literally anything else in the store.
