Pros: discounts (50%) meeting interesting people, learning about international cultures
Cons: varying hours, management flaws, unfair sales
It is nice to get to know a lot of different people and be immersed in different cultures. This job really opened me up to new and interesting things that normally someone wouldn't come in contact with. I learned a lot about how to approach a customer friendly, how to make them comfortable as well as relaying information about products. Although it is a good place to work, management seems to be a little off in terms of how sales goals are made. Managers will get all sales until their goals are met, and only after will you work towards your goal. This works when it is done properly- everyone that needs to will make their goal. It is not a fair way of showing who is selling and who isnt, which does not reflect accurately to higher ups. You have to make a big sale and ask the manager to put it on you for you to get credit. Most of the time, the manager does not sell, but does cashiering and paperwork while you are on the floor- then tells you to engage with customers to make sales. If you get this job- you will need two jobs because you will not get enough hours.
