Cashiered, provided customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Twin Falls, IDApril 14, 2014
Pros: learned to put mods together, learned about different shoe types.
Cons: short staffed, short breaks
A typical day was getting to work early and setting up shoe displays for sales opportunities. I learned how to organize shoes by color and brand. It was usually only one person working in my department during the day. The hardest part of the job was a lot of standing and not enough breaks. The hardest part of the job was climbing ladders to store shoes – more... with their boxes. – less

Part time - Training was random
Windows Specialist (Current Employee), Ocoee, FLApril 14, 2014
Pros: 25% discount
Cons: pt- 12 to 25 hrs wk, only if your avail 7day, 24 hrs
The hardest part of my job - I had to train myself by asking questions. Managers were not knowledgeable in Windows Department. I had to learn from trial and error. At this time there is no one besides my self and a new Manager that is learning this department. End result, customers are calling for information as to when I am scheduled to be in. The – more... most enjoyable part of the job is interacting & helping customers with their window designs and needs. There are co-workers that are there that are not dedicated and have no willingness to learn that department and feel as though they are thrown into it. There is one Manager there that is truly dedicated, I appreciate her and her ongoing training & knowledge she provides to all of us. – less
