A typical day at Charming Charlies begins with a review of the newest styles and trends and a manager testing you on the know how. Great for boosting confidence in charmers selling and keeps them on their toes. After you are deemed ready you're sent in to assist guests with shopping choices and questions and keep the store looking neat and tidy. Everyone is kept pretty busy, and the store I worked at in particular was careful at choosing their staff, so everyone got along. Management was great and always supportive. Sadly my time working there I watched as numbers were more important than customers and corporate was pushing the store and its loyal staff to its limits with constant changes and unrelenting criticism. I watched as a lot of staff came and left, and eventually as much as I loved the store for what it had been the pay was not enough to keep me going.
