Dangerous Jobs in the Heartland
By: CJ Cassidy
That's what convenience store clerks on the graveyard shift do, every night, never knowing who might walk in.
Monday night, police say an armed robbery at the Stanfield Hillbilly 60 convenience store in Dexter, left clerks shaken up.
Nowadays when store owners hire a clerk, they train them so they know what to do if they're ever held up.
Store managers say what happened in Dexter is exactly the type of scenario they warn employees about when they apply for a job.
"They're open at all times, even at three in the morning, and that's when most violent crimes take place," Pulley says.
