Pros: clothing discounts, closely knit team, and a caring managerial staff.
Cons: not many hours available, sometimes the store was slow, and un-boxing large shipments.
I would usually open the store with one other manager after we ensured the store was in pristine conditions including a clean floor, appealing clothing displays, and an overall enjoyable atmosphere. I would assist customers in clothing selections, sizes, and price options while catering to their specific tastes. I would then check them out myself and – more... handle all cash and debit purchases.
I learned how to sell and how to appeal to certain peoples personality types. I was able to figure out certain peoples tastes and find an outfit that fit that.
The management taught me everything in a hands on manner. They cared about my personal life and well-being which made me feel valued and appreciated.
My co-workers were very trustworthy and hard working individuals who valued the customers and the product. Everyone was very energetic and close because we would usually work side by side for most of the days.
The hardest part of the job was organizing the store room because of the sheer size of our shipments. Finding stuff in there could sometimes be a challenge.
The best part of the job was helping someone find something that they really liked. When they left with a smile, you felt proud of what you accomplished. – less
