I will not regret my time there, though brief
Cashier/ General Operations (Former Employee) – Rochester, NH – July 19, 2016
As one of the first hires, I participated in the actual assembly of the physical structure and setup of the store. This allowed me to appreciate the scale of the building itself and the layouts of all departments, as well as the merchandise itself. Once the store was opened, I had my first experience working as a retail employee, dealing with the public in a new way, as well as having the chance to work in several different departments and completing a variety of assignments, from cashier to assembly/ disassembly of displays, stocking of merchandise, and fabric preparation. My manager was a very patient person, especially considering I was quite new to the field. My co-workers, mostly older and far more experienced than myself in this field, readily accepted me and guided me through the learning process. The hardest part of the whole experience was keeping up with all the different skill sets required, while maintaining speed and efficiency. The most enjoyable experiences were as much with my co-workers as many of the customers, who are often the innately creative, curious, and 'enthusiastic' type. From what I have learned about working in retail from working there, and about myself, I am eager to discover what more is to come and what I can accomplish.
Paid breaks, required time off for meals, friendly co-workers
