Pros: happy environment to work
Cons: not enough hours, not enough challenges
A typical day at work would consist of getting to work, dropping my things off in my locker and then clocking in in a timely fashion.
I would start by scanning the store, making sure the drawers and walls were stacked with merchandise and that all marketing was in place and neatly placed. Any time a customer would come in, I'd stop what I'm doing (stocking, cleaning, changing advertisements) and greet them. I'd make sure I asked open-ended questions so the customer has the opportunity to brainstorm and explore the options available in the store. Depending on the customers interests and needs, I'd expose her to scents and merchandise of interest to her by showing her samples, applying perfume to her skin, or helping her make smart choices based on the numerous deals in the store.
I learned quickly how to use the register when at first I was a little hesitant to do so because I was afraid to make mistakes with money exchanges. But my manager reassured me and told me that it was "very easy" and she was right. I'm a pro now.
My coworkers are all very easy to get along with, primarily because I believe we all share the same mindset: we're here to work, make Bath & Body Works look good, and have a good time while we do it.
I find the job easy, especially because recently it hasn't been very busy. I love when my work environment in slammed with work to do. Christmas time is the best. I love running around and feeling like my hands will fall off at the register from all the scanning and typing. It's an adrenalin rush-- which essentially for me is the most enjoyable part of this job.
