Third Key (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, CT – July 25, 2016
It is a good first job where you can gain some valuable experience. Depending on the day their are many tasks to be completed and most of the time you are kept busy. Management is helpful and are open to new ideas to get tasks done. The co workers are usually younger so you take on the leader role as being a part of the management team helping the kids grow. The hardest part of the job is the overwhelming business on release days with limited staff hard to manage with the high volume of traffic. The most enjoyable part of the job is the relationships you build.
I only worked for 4 hours every few days but they was never lacking in activity. I learned how to restock shoes and clothing as well as how to pitch/sell shoes. I also learned how to process returns and take inventory. Management was very friendly and understanding but not the best at time management; we often left the store an hour after we were supposed to. My co-workers were excellent! They were very helpful and kind as well as personable. The hardest part of the job was being able to find and distribute shoes to multiple customers at the same time. On the other hand, the most enjoyable part was being able to talk to people al the time ann occasionally rushing around the store(I am not one for standing still and not being active in some way).
A typical day at work would consist of customer service, cashing out customers, and clean up at the end of the day. While I was there I learned how to manage the cash register. I also learned to deal with difficult customers and difficult situations. The management at the time was ok. The co-workers were outstanding! We always had a great time at work, I guess you can say we never had a dull moment. The hardest part of the job was when we would received a truck load of shipment. Also, when we would get those really tough customers. But the most enjoyable part of the job was at the end of the night because that was when we would just unwind and talk about all of the things that happened through out the day while we cleaned up the store.
AT work I spend my time helping customer, Stocking, restocking, maintaining cleanliness of my work area. The most recent thing that I have learned is how to retrieve shoes and call my sister store when we don't have a product.
I would aways start my day by making sure the inventory of shoes is up to date. I would handle all the shipping from the shoe department. I would work with the management and keep the shoe wall up to date. I would move the top selling shes to eye level and the others accordingly to how the sell. I would put the sale prices up on the shoes and sell as many as I can.

After a few years working for Eblens I have gotten a bit tired because I have learned everything up to this point. I can do anything from cashing out customers to getting shoes for customers to try on along with restock. I have enjoyed, learned and had fun working here.. still do but over time it becomes routine and you get tired unless you are really interested in working in retail.
good staff, managers and structure
too strict sometimes, managers expect too much sometimes
