work

9 Jan

since the end of school, i apparently have left with nothing much to do (except for the driving license and internet). what happened was i sat online or watched tv all day.

so i kinda decided to work. tell me what mall i didn’t go in kl for jobhunting. last thursday, i scouted (on foot and public transport) pavilion, bb plaza, sungei wang, low yat plaza, the weld, klcc and menara standard chartered. (the next day i went to kompleks kraf at jalan conlay; interviewed and got the job but the pay was crap and it’s in mid valley, damn far away). yeah i really don’t know what’s up about the thing on malls; as if other places don’t have vacancies. haha.

(i noticed that people who works in retail eg. sales assistant, most of  them can be said attractive. and i don’t think i fall into that category. *low self-esteem* )

anyway the process of job application is kinda complicated as you will be asked of photocopies of thingamajigs. i ended up spending more than rm15 for photocopies only. crazy.

after the kompleks kraf interview, me and my cousin (we did the jobhunting together) went to pavilion for lunch (but ended up eating at hilton korner – the food was feroshabuloutastic). i went to the toilet and she held my phone. when i finished my business, she told me both of us officially got a job!

someone from giant called and said that we are cashiers now! it’s a new giant outlet; a very large outlet mind you – 25 cashier lanes! and the pay was a total bomb (for us) – rm10 per hour. the only problem is it’s located in desa petaling. haihs. we’ll figure the way there.

so today i went for the training at giant OUG at old klang road, and the reality – it’s a tiring job. apparently standing and pounding the cash register, memorising passwords for different credit cards (visa, mastercard etc.), packing the goods in plastic bags and yet make sure the cash in the register is in the right amount drains a lot of energy. but still bearable lah. 😉

and what i learned, cashiers cannot use phones while on duty. and we can’t have our own cash during work, as we may get accused of stealing if there were any short of cash in the register. talk about meticulous. and the cashiers at giant OUG was really friendly and funny. their antics never failed to make all us trainees smile. maybe that’s how they managed nine hours of cashiering daily.

tomorrow, i’ll still have training, and it’s gonna be about customer service. wish me luck peeps. i’ll be slaving myself happily working in giant soon. ahhh just smile and *beep*. like this kitkat commercial.

*and i got my own, very first, spanking new, yellow colored punch card! bangga hell*
