Sales Associate (Current Employee), New York, NY – April 7, 2014
A typical day at Century 21 is bringing the new merchandise to the floor. Assisting the customers from time to time. I have great managers. My co-workers on the floor are awesome people and we always work as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new customers everyday that are tourists that come from different parts of the world.
Check and answer all emails, which include request from Agents, Operating leadrouter. Disbursing leads to Agents. Sending out email blast to Agents, requesting newspaper ads and informing Agents on upcoming sales meetings. Answering & directing calls. I learned a great deal in advertising, creating flyers, postcards, embedding in emails from G-drive. Co – more... workers and I share great deal of information out to the Agents and have to make sure communication is fast and up to date. I believe the hardest part of my job is generating phone duty schedule to accommodate the agents request & at the same time give even shifts, but the challenge is great to accomplish every time. The most enjoyable part of my job is accomplishing my duties & task. I take great happiness in helping the Agents and the clients on the journey to selling or buying a new home. – less

I was a sales associate/cashier. The job mostly required assisting customers with any problems that they had. Also, making sure the stock was properly displayed.

Sales Cashier (Former Employee), manhattan ny – March 7, 2014
Pros: helping guest, set schedule
Cons: short breaks, poor management
A typical day for me was doing an 8 hour shift behind the register dealing with many different types of people. I learned many different ways to tell a fake bill from a real bill without using a money pen. The management was ok. I felt like they didn't really care about what the smaller positions ( cashiers, floor workers etc) had to say. If we felt – more... like a supervisor was being rude or unfair to us it didn't matter. Being promoted was also hard. Although I was only there for 6 months, I wanted to do more. I wanted to become a Register Complex Supervisor (RCS). Every time I brought it up i was told I wasn't fit for the job by my Current RCS. The hardest part of the day was trying to communicate with the many tourist that came from a different country and didn't speak English. The most enjoyable part of the day was being able to help the different guest and see them leave with a smile knowing that you helped them have a great experience at the store. – less
Handyman and trash out of vacant properties (Former Employee), Tri-cities (Fremont, Newark, Union City & others) – March 4, 2014
Pros: enjoyed being part of a team effort and working for my grandparents.
Cons: often there could be too much time between jobs, especially as the boom market declined..
This job started while still in school. After graduation the real estate boom of foreclosures was at its peak. Was very busy for a couple of years, with some downtime between jobs as new listings became available.
A typical day was receiving a job order for "trash out" of a new listing or bank owned property. Each property was different in what was – more... needed to prepare it for the real estate market. Duties included yard work, tree trimming, removing personal belongings and objects (furniture) left behind, window, bathroom, kitchen appliances, floors....basic house cleaning and removal of interior/exterior debris, hauling to dump or charity.
Co-workers were customarily my brother and Mom as the jobs were provided by my grandparents who are real estate brokers/owners. So it was a family endeavor.
Jobs were labor intensive requiring strength and endurance, some more than others. Because it was my grandparents business reputation, I enjoyed their approval in knowing they were satisfied and I helped them to sell a clean property. I learned alot about small job repairs that will be useful throughout my life and someday, home ownership. – less
