Pros: easy, good pay, fun.
Cons: if the store is not busy, hours can tick by slowly. not usual occurance on weekends, but have worked some weekdays and it is a long day if there are not many shoppers.
This is a second job for me. I work weekends only and they are very flexible, 6 hour shifts with 1- 15 minute 1-30 minute break sometimes longer shifts for special events, never opened holidays, pay is fair for a easy job of handing out samples and promoting a product, bonuses for selling sampled product, co-workers are fun along with management. I love working for CDS.
I have learned that involving passing customers in conversation helps with sales of your product. They may just pass me by or be too shy to just try a sample, but by me inviting them to try, almost everyone will try and this can lead to a sale. Kids are also good sales, if kids like it parents are more likely to buy a product, so let kids sample away if they like it!!!
You have to have patience with this job, some peolpe have not been taught manners, but the polite and thank you's of most customers make up for the rude customers.
