Pros: Quiet environment, easy to do, located in the mall
Cons: Very few hours, very little training, can get boring at times
There is little to no training. You basically learn as you go along. It was especially difficult for me because it was my first time working in a store, so I had to learn about all the products by myself. It was extremely awkward my first few days there because customers would ask me questions like "How does this work?" or "Do you sell this?" and I'd honestly have to tell them I didn't know and hand them off to one of the assistant managers. My advice would be to arrive at least a half hour early prior to your shift and walk around the store and take note of what the products are, how they function, what they're used for and where they're located at in the store. Doing that a couple times will really help you learn the products and the store. As far as working the register goes, it's pretty simple but I did forget a few things on occasion. However, the more I did it, the easier it was and before I knew it, I was making all sorts of sales. Also, don't be intimidated by the managers or other Sales Associates who've been there longer than you. If you have a question, just ask because at the end of the day you're there to help customers and make money just like the rest of them. Just keep your eyes focused on your goal.
