It all started on May 30, 2006. On that day my life would never be the same. Yes, that was the day that I was hired as an employee at the one and only Clearfield Maceys food and drug store. I have worked at a maceys ever since that day. So I have worked their for more than 2 and a 1/2 years now. I never knew that I would be an employee of a grocery store for so long. However, I now work at a maceys far larger and far better than the clearfield Maceys. I am talking about the Providence Maceys which is only about 2 years old. It really is an exquisite grocery store.

But working at a grocery store does have its drawbacks, I know that this is hard to believe, but it does. Some of these drawbacks include working until midnight on occasion, and also working with ornery or annoying guests. It's okay to have a bad day every once in a while. But please don't show it when your checking out at the grocery store. It affects us cashiers. We some times end up getting ornery or even feel bad when we shouldn't feel bad that you are ornery. Also I hate it when people tell me how to bag their groceries, I have been trained, I know what I am doing. These along with countless other reasons are why working at a grocery store can be a drawback, not to mention the pay.

On the bright side, working at a grocery store does have it's perks. One is that you get to meet and work with a lot of really cool and humorous people. Some of these people I have worked with in the past have turned out to become really close friends. Also late at night when hardly anyone is in the store you get to make up and play crazy weird games and even have random dance parties to the horrble music they play over the Intercom. But the best part of all, only comes to employees who are cashiers. I get paid to check people out all day long! I bet your all jealous now!
