Amusement Attendent

Capital, Entertainment & Leisure Ltd.

CEL is a amusement / entertainment business. Here they satisfy the needs of the elderly community in the area where there is nightly bingo and electronic gaming. It is a cash business and so dealing with large amounts of money is a big part of the job description. I have experience in this area as I was in charge of a refreshment bar that would normally accommodate for up to 450 people on a nightly basis. Again this area would involve some heavy lifting and stocking shelves duties. Working here is a pleasurable experience and has added greatly to my personal experience and teamwork responsibilities.

Outdoor Section Assistent.

Smyths Toys Ltd

This was my first part-time job. It was a job in the intervening summer of 5th and 6th year of secondary school. Very enjoyable time here. I was an assistant in the “Outdoor” Section of the store. This included some heavy lifting and stocking of shelves on the store floor. I also dealt with setting up displays and taking in product orders for customers. This position consisted mostly of interaction with the customer and trying to satisfy their needs and give them the product they were looking for, be it bring them to the right section within the store where they could make the right decision or searching the storeroom for the product they needed.
