My position while I was there was titled, backroom stock. The typical work day consisted of unpacking merchandise, pricing the item and making sure it was put in the correct place to be stocked out on the shelves. That took up most of your work day, but we also made sure the store was kept in good condition by stocking empty shelves, keeping the merchandise front faced and providing help to any customer in need of finding what they needed. One to two times a week you receive the delivery trucks. On those days you had to work in a fast pace and make sure you read the right product numbers in order to put the items in the sections they belonged. Also assisted some customers who purchased large items, furniture etc, bring the item/s out to their car. It wasn't the best job for me, I'm not the type to be into how repetitive the job was. I felt that was the worst part, the only thing I can think to compare it to is like working on an assembly line. Doing the same thing day in and day out. As well as the compensation. The pay wasn't the best, but it would not have been as bad if they gave you more hours. During the summer time its not as busy as around Christmas, sometimes you would check the schedule and realize you only had 15 hours scheduled for that week with no warning.
Easy work, Wonderful supervisors
