Pros: free lunches on occasion, got lots of credit, and also my managers.
Cons: the difficult customers and my co-workers when they were having a bad day.
I typically started off my day at the register. First I would make sure that all the money was balanced and what it was supposed to be. Then I would straighten around the register on the tables and shelves. And then if there was any cleaning(dusting, etc) that needed to be done I did that. And I worked on stock. I went to the back to see if there was – more... any that needed to be put out. And sometimes, if my manager asked me to I would start on markdowns/markups. I learned a lot about what it was like to work in retail. And I learned a lot about myself and what I was capable of. I loved all the managers. I did not have a problem or issue out of any one of them. My co-workers were very competitive, especially when it came to sales and soliciting credit. The hardest part was the difficult customers. The most enjoyable part was at night, when it was kind of slow I had a lot of downtime to just straighten, dust and help the customers that came in. – less
