typical day: you arrive at mall opening and have to take down a tarp that covers the kiosk. Not fun. You get the kiosk ready in 15 minutes (you are rushed) to be open for the customers. To get ready you have to count the drawers, open the register, fold the tarps and put them away, and prepare sample tray. Selling meat, cheese, gift sets. Giving out samples to customers. You usually work a 6-7 shift by yourself. If you close you work from 3:30 - mall closing and you have break everything down and wrap the kiosk with the tarps. Make the bank deposit, lock up cash box, etc. You do the daily sales reports and fax them to home office. This is manager level work but you only make $8.00 per hour. You only work in teams between black Friday/Thanksgiving and up until the day after Christmas. Most people you work with are ok, but some are jerks. Management is good and flexible. Hardest part of the job is dealing with the tarps, and worrying about how you are going to take a restroom break. Some customers are jerks, but that is to be expected at the mall during the holidays. Most enjoyable part is not having a manger breathing down your neck. Employee discount is a nice perk.
low pay, lack of breaks
