Pros: good benefits, good management, knew district and regional managers, friendly competitions between stores, great team work skills
Cons: transfers were not easy to come by, as employees seldom left to leave openings for a transfer to be possible.
My job kept me interested and challenged on a daily basis as it was a constantly changing environment. Ever changing shelves, moving products around, changing out packaging, reviewing new products, upcoming new products and services. Keeping customers who were professional owners and operators up to date on the ever changing items coming in and being introduced to the public. A typical day at work was never typical, as we received updates through the day to keep informed of everything coming by truck and by delivery. The Manager was very informative and helpful at keeping us up to date with all her notices of changes and product changes. Co-workers worked as team members as a lot of the work took two people to create the right look and appeal to catch the customers eyes. We all worked well together and still keep in touch even though we are not in the store together anymore. The hardest part of the job was leaving at the end of the day without completing what you were in the middle of, we were forever changing shelves to appeal to the new looks. The most enjoyable part of my job was having happy customers who looked forward to our calls on the phone and our help in the store when they came to refill their products for their stores or customers.
