Pros: fun work environment, am able to develop my merchandising skills with little supervisation
Cons: low wage, no benefits
My management and coworkers are some of the greatest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone communicates and works with each other with no problem, for the most part.
My day consists of making sure the store looks up to par, helping customers with their needs and showing them pieces to complement their outfits, whatever the occasion may be. I love making my customers happy with their choices and am always honest with them as to what outfits look good on them. My customers love my friendliness and honesty.
At the end of the day, I clean up after my customers and straighten up what needs to be done. If I'm the closing supervisor, I count down all the registers, prepare the deposit for the next day, and make sure any paperwork is accounted for. I make sure we don't leave until the store looks fresh for the next day, but we do so in a timely manner so that hours aren't affected.
