A fun, easygoing place to work with peers.
Pros: met peers, flexible scheduling, convenient location
Cons: work wasn't as challenging as i would have liked
Work began with a walk through of the store to identify points of emphasis to be met during my shift. I typically coordinated and organized the campus textbook program with the University staff. This included organizing, sorting and stocking of textbooks and supplies across multiple University locations. I learned how important it was to be organized and prompt with my work as it directly effects the productivity of others. Once training was complete, the management staff left daily tasks up to the employees and only intervened when called upon or absolutely necessary. I liked the flexibility in scheduling, allowing me to work around my school schedule. Co-workers were friendly and very helpful in the training and first few weeks of work catching me up to speed on how daily tasks should be completed. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unsatisfied student customers, as they aren't very understanding when it comes to complications with orders. However, this challenged me to do the very best I could in order to please the customer as well as the management team.
