I had to go back to work, so I've been hunting for a full time position. My work background is in cashiering for chain supermarkets. I really wanted the cashier position at Planet Organic, a local health/organic/veg*n food store.



Thanks to my time on VB and all the issues you guys talk about, I was able to really shine. I explained how I'm informed enough to help customers identify veg*n products, answer questions about different diets like veganism and raw foodism, and be conscious of AR/AW and environmental issues our customers might be concerned with.



They called me back 3 hours after the interview and asked me to come in for a second interview, and today they offered me the job! Hooray!

So does this mean that we all get to horn in your employee discount?

Congrats!! That's awesome that they called you back so fast. They are lucky to have someone so informed. I am always sooo happy when a supermarket employee is knowledgable about veg*nism and AR and is able to help me find cruelty-free products.

No doubt a rarity.

Thanks, everyone. I'm excited because I know at least one vegetarian works there, and I have no veg*n friends in real life. And I need to get out of the house more, and earn money, so it's really perfect.

Thanks! Highlights so far have included helping a woman find vegan chocolate today, and educating a customer on the benefits of Seventh Generation and Eco cleaning products.
