Pros: fast-paced, fun people
Cons: no breaks, late nights
A typical work day for me was very, very busy. I was responsible for answering phones and directing calls, processing returns and exchanges, doing Western Union transactions, back-up cashiering, giving people breaks, and building tills and balancing them, along with adding up all checks, coupons, and cash for the day to balance the store at the end of my shift. The hardest part about my position was not getting breaks, myself, sometimes because I was so busy in the office. The store managers sometimes didn't help much with that problem. It makes Customer Service a bit more challenging, but I was able to push through it. It was also difficult to be "in charge" of younger people because I'm not too much older than them and they sometimes didn't want to listen to me. Aside from the negative, I loved working with the general public and the challenges that it brought kept everything interesting. I did the same work every day, but the circumstances were different most of the time. There were very few days that I was bored.
