Assistant Store Manager at American Apparel
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – May 1, 2017
As the Assistant Store Manager, I opened and closed the store. I typically worked around 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. The upper level management was responsive, but not as organized as management I had worked for in years prior. The culture was dark, considering the fact that the company was being sold and all of the retail stores were closing and the workers were being let go. I learned that even in the toughest times, it's still important to provide exceptional customer service and experiences because at the end of the day, sales is about providing and making money for a company, and that is what we were being paid to do.
Low pay, poor healthcare, low budget.
