Fast paced Job with many opportunities to sell
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Elizabeth, NJ – September 15, 2015
A typical day at work for me starts with a fifteen minute meeting with the entire staff. We learn about what happened the day before and also the new goals for the present day. Then we all scatter to our sections, mine being the register. I make sure the cashwrap is all ready to go for when the customers come in. That includes making sure we have enough paper bags, tissue, gift boxes, pens, tape, etc, available for my fellow cashiers to give to our customers. Then once that is done we assist the customers with either checking out, repairs, or exchanges and returns. If the stores traffic is low for the day i go out on the floor to make sales, or go to the back to help with shipment. After two or three hours, i go on me meal which is 30 minutes long then i take an additional 15 minute break. After i come back i continue to assist the customers in any way possible as well as provide a helping hand to my managers or coworkers. The hardest part of the job has to be keeping up with the high volumes of people that come into the store. It can get very busy, so it is hard to try to help everyone in a reasonable time period. The most enjoyable park would have to be working with my coworkers because they make the job fun; also, it is very satisfying when you provide a customer with the perfect bag.
