Cons: little chance of benefits
A typical weekday can be pretty steady with customers coming in and out of the store. The most prevalent responsibility of the job is answering the phone; customers call in from open to close to ask about their orders, make appointments, etc. From this job, I learned that time management is a necessity and that a work environment is what the employees make of it; regardless of how tough the day could get, the right attitude could make all the difference. The assistant managers are amazing, they are helpful, understanding, fun, and teaching. My co-workers are hard working, kind, and fun; they take the job to heart and try to help their brides find the perfect fit. Working here, the hardest part of the job is handling disgruntled customers; in such a specialized industry, mistakes are a big deal when dealing with brides-to-be. Figuring out exactly what the problem is, how it happened, and how to fix it can get complicated by fast approaching wedding dates. On the other hand, seeing a bride or other customer completely pleased that they will look and feel beautiful on their big day was the most enjoyable part of the job.
