Pros: supports military members directly, good benefits for even part time employees
Cons: some merchandise would take a long time to receive due to location, short staffed for majority of year due to decline in sales
A typical day in my position would be: clock in, log in to my computer, print out the price change list, check the sales floor for items changing in price, log back in to computer to close out price change documents, finish any current project I was working on or consult with my supervisor with any additional duties.
In this position, I learned how – more... to multitask well. I also learned a lot about different departments in the store so I was able to work anywhere that needed extra assistance.
We had a complete change of management during my 3 years at this store. Most were good changes but they did eliminate a few positions due to declining sales.
My coworkers were also a complete turnover. When I was first hired we started with 8 filled vacancies and by the time I left they were down to 4 with no replacement for me. Overall, we had a good team and were able to work well together despite the consistently high turnover rate.
The hardest part of my job was the hours. Though it was a set schedule, the time difference was pretty hard to adjust to at first.
My favorite part of my job was that I was always doing something different each day. I always had work to do and it was a position where you had to be independent and self-sufficient but still able to work as a team. – less
