simple job with relatively low stress environment
Merchandise Manager (Former Employee) – Lewisville, TX – April 16, 2016
A typical day consisted of assisting customers with the ideal choice for merchandise pending on their situation, as well as general store upkeep, along with the occasional re merchandising for store products to maximize sales for the store. I learned how to deal with different kinds of customers, and that being helpful regardless of how you are treated can often result in a sale. While managing i learned how to maximize employee work effectiveness, and to be a good leader you have to be willing to be a good follower/worker first. I worked with some great people, as well as others who only came for a check. Its easy to tell who is who, but as a manager you have to be able to get the most out of what you have to work with regardless of who it is. The hardest part of the job was getting employees to work to full potential at times, but over time i improved my leadership skills. Talking and assisting with people and being genuine was very enjoyable.
Free to roam store, not stuck in one spot.
Occasional rude customer, employees who lacked motivation.
