So today was supposed to be my day off. I work as cashier since November last year and most recently Guest Service since about 2 months ago. That's it. I got a phone call asking me to come in and act as GSA because our lead GSTL called off today and although they are planning on training me to become a GSA but first need to train another at the service desk first to replace me. So I came in. Got GSTL keys, LPDA, and walkie and ran the front end to close tonight. I don't even have a supervisor key yet. I'd have had to have an LOD for any overrides. Turns out I only had to call up the LOD once to learn how to get change for one of the registers. Has this ever been done before that you have heard of? I was flattered they had that level of confidence in me and I did fine (and was thanked many times over by the closing LOD). I even trained two new cashiers for the first time. I just thought it was odd that they allowed me to do that even though I was in no way certified and had no experience training. Just curious because I feel like I'm so new to the company and am already being asked to perform this duty when there are others that have been there far longer than I have.
