Hey, is anyone here working at a newsagency?

I do... Obviously lol. Just thought I'd make a thread for it since I couldn't find one.

Ps. Sorry if there's already a similar thread!

I rekon working at a newsagent would be one of the most easiest yet boring jobs ever. Unless u work at the newsagents that are located inside big shopping centers like Northland, Greensborough shopping center and all those other places. Wats the pay like?

I did when I was 15. My first job - I hated it. Moreso because I had a fear of the phone (didn't want to answer it... somehow avoided it for 7 months!). I also had a crap boss - expected me to do orders once - he also expected me to know the entire close routine after just 3 shifts basically.

I didn't really like the responsibility back then - selling smokes/lotto. I do not regret quitting.

When I was searching for a job this year, I did a trial at a different newsagency - wasn't as bad as my first one, but it wasn't what I was after.
