Most peo­ple are still hunt­ing to find their re­wards card by the time Fred Pereira has fin­ished scan­ning and pack­ing their gro­ceries. The fast worker from Porirua was named Count­down Check­out Op­er­a­tor of the Year for the Welling­ton area last week, af­ter scan­ning and pack­ing 21 gro­ceries in a minute. Mr Pereira topped 73 check­out op­er­a­tor fi­nal­ists from 16 Count­down su­per­mar­kets in the re­gion. Com­pe­ti­tions be­gan in June with in-store as­sess­ments where check­out op­er­a­tors were tested on their uni­form stan­dards, scan rates, till cash balances and over­all cus­tomer ser­vice. First place win­ners in each store went head-to­head in the fi­nal where they were judged on the same cri­te­ria. Mr Pereira re­ceives $250 of Count­down vouch­ers and will join nine other area fi­nal­ists at the Count­down Check­out Olympics later this month.
