Great place to work, learned much about retail
LEAD ASSOCIATE-KEYHOLDER (Former Employee) – Chicago Ridge, IL – January 23, 2017
Again, thoroughly enjoyed working in the Chicago Ridge Hallmark store. Loved the employees, customers and manager. Quickly learned the roll of lead associate with many responsibilities and having no previous experience with the cash register.
For some unknown reason, was let go prior to Christmas rush. Manager felt it was taking too long to learn everything. Wrote it off as a personality conflict somewhere. Was a total shock and to this day still don't understand what truly went wrong.
I did have problems with the cash register but was coming along, was a lot to learn and oftentimes the computer end of register was slow or locked up. Very frustrating, time consuming and lead to customers waiting. Not good.
Great experience but bad result. Chalked it up to experience.
