    I'm the opposite. I generally prefer male check out operators are they're usually quicker and nicer than the girls.

    I've had good and bad packers regardless of gender.
    I now put my groceries on the belt grouped how I want and I put a green bag in between groups so they know when to change bags.
    I hate when I have so many bags bit they just fill up tiger bags do much that I can barely lift them. This way I don't have to keep asking for them to change how they're packing my stuff.

    I go to Aldi now so I don't have to worry about the tomatoes being under the tins of spaghetti etc. though I still find I load it on the conveyor belt as I want it packed ... it must be habit after years of hopeless check out packers.

    OMG why do they do that?! I find it particularly annoying when I have 20 green bags with me so there is no reason for it.

    Good idea!

    I find generally that younger staff, especially teens, don't pack well, probably because they don't do grocery shopping. Older staff are better IMO.

    Generally the ones that are terrible are actually grocery / nightfill staff - and are trained to use a cash register (but not pack) so they can be called on checkout when it's busy or they're covering for someone.

    Also, the younger ones tend to not be so good at packing because they don't ever shop for themselves as they still live at home.... So they've never had squashed bread or chemical-y fruit.

    You can always pack yourself if they're doing a bad job

    Also if you have repeat offenders - call & report them to the store. They'll be given some packing training

    Not at my supermarket - I have a great checkout bloke who I always go through. His name is Aaron and he is just lovely, friendly, efficient. He is going to Canada in a March and I am going to miss him
