Gave me the needed experience to begin a career in the retail industry and helped me decide my major in fashion design
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Trotwood, OHAugust 13, 2013
Mainly worked behind the counter as a cashier but on Mon. and Wed. worked on shipment and stock near counter area. Always had to multitask with the cash register and sales floor. Worked with many customers and created great customer service and communication skills. Management changed during my time there a couple times but the last manager before I – more... left gave me great inspiration to my career choice. My co-workers varied and transferred due to school and management opportunities at other locations. The hardest part of the job was trying to make goals within the store when there were dead hours. The most enjoyable moments were doing the store visuals and working with different types of customers. – less

My success was due to a wonderful company
Retail Store Manager (Former Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 13, 2013
Pros: advancement, benefits, generous compensation
Cons: location, long hours away from family
As a store manager for Dots I was very successful in a short period of time. Not only was I good at my job, loved it and was completely dedicated to it, my company mirrored that in me. Which became a total win /win situation for us both. I was the top manager in my district of 12 stores. I ran the highest volume store and exceeded sales goals every – more... month. Our store won the majority of all the sales competitions as well.
I was challenged and pushed myself to live up to those challenges. I was compensated generously and had a good relationship with my district and general managers. I left Dots after being transferred to one of our problem stores to turn it around, which I did. I took the store from trending down 11% to trending up 23% with in 2 months. However the store was in a very bad area of town and I became afraid to go to work. After discussing my concerns with my district manager I was given the opportunity to relocate but would have had to move into a assistant manager position, I was offered the bar manager position at the Eagles where I had been working part time. – less

Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIJuly 31, 2013
Cons: unprofessional bad managenemt
As the senior sales it was my job to train other employees along with completing the basic functions of a sales associate. The customers that came into the store were like family and were mostly plesant. The management was very unorganized and unprofessional. The avenues they give the employees to bring awareness to the superiors was uneffictive. the – more... managment passed out the workloads unfairly and were very unproductive themselves. Not a very good team attitude they over worked and under paid. – less

Pros: being able to express my ideas to bring in more customers and motivate the employees (contest, outings and promotions)

The most enjoyable part of this job was the relationships that I had the opportunity to establish with the customers.

The most rewarding part of this position was accomplishing all of the corporate goals and consistently achieving our quotas to bonus. – more...
