Productive and fun. Everyday is something different. You never know what to expect.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – City of Sunrise, FL – December 31, 2013
Everyday my goal is to have my customers leave completely satisfied with their purchase. As a manager I enjoy having the ability to spread the knowledge that I have learned as a sales associates to my part-timers and full-timers, assisting them in making themselves complete sellers. Sometimes if it's necessary I join them on the sales floor to provide them a little competition to let them know that I too can sell. My store has built everything on communication. This aspect of our work environment is what truly helps us in making our team so efficient. Teamwork makes the dream work in Sawgrass and it all comes down to or communication skills. Prior to starting the day I make sure that everything is done logistically prior to opening our gates. From forecasting to test checks, even to making sure there are no gaps in the schedule.
Freedom to wear whatever shoes you want and seeing something different happen every day
Short breaks, sometimes we are worked like robots. No set schedules.
A typical day at work is usually fun and competitive. I learned great social skills. The crucial part of this job is to sell not only shoes but up-selling other merchandise is key to gaining more commission. The most enjoyable part about this particular job is if you have the right staff, is that it can feel very family oriented.
