Pros: fast-paced environment, pay was great when in season
Cons: if they weren't any events taking place, there wasn't much money to be made.
This location is an event-driven store, and that provided an amazingly unique experience everyday. Dull days of work were few and far between. No two shifts were exactly the same, and I think that helped to perpetuate the fun and fast paced environment that we seemed to thrive in. I was lucky enough to work with some of the most genuine, trustworthy, and happy people any management team could ask for. As with any service industry job, sometimes the hardest part can be knowing how to talk to and handle customers in any situation. As much as those situations had potential to drastically spiral out of control, I always thrived! I very much enjoy bringing a smile to people's faces, especially if things aren't exactly how they expected. That was probably the most beneficial lesson to have learned in any job I've had prior.
