I currently work right now as a cashier for Rite Aid. It's a retail pharmacy store but the pros about physical labor jobs even though it is tiring is that I did hear that it has physciall benefits (being physically fit and active!). If you are sedentary or inactive in life , you're more likely to have a heart attack or stroke in your old age! So it's tough but I do know that SOME physically demanding jobs don't pay alot and that's the drawback. If you can't handle it because you have a health condition or are disabled, then yeah I would suggest something a little less taxing BUT employers have to still be able to hire you if that is the case, otherwise, that's just discrimination! Anyway, good luck and hopefully you'll be able to find a happy medium! ... I've been at Rite Aid for the past 5 years (in order to show my loyalty to them) HOWEVER, I don't know if I am going to be there for the long run because of the cons: Little pay, too physically taxing (you have to sweep the floors, fill the coolers, attend to the customers and their complains if any, face the items on the shelves, serve ice cream and clean up the counters afterwards ALL for minimun wage or close to it!!
