Pros: customers, music, environment, products
My typical day was walking into the store and seeing the gleaming faces of my co-workers. Parents would come in with their kids looking for shoes they both could enjoy, whether it was for school or style. I would ask them general questions about what they were looking for, I would then measure their foot, and bring back a select styles. I was responsible for a lot of tasks such as running the register, doing exchanges and returns, helping customers, cleaning and closing the store. If we had a new employee I would train them for the week and show them how to stock shoes, how to approach and help customers, and using the register. I learned how to work as an individual and as a team member. I gained the skills management,communication, troubleshooting, and performance.
My manager was a great person. He really knew how to manage the store in a fun and efficient manner. He was fair and always pushed me to do better as a sales associate. My co-workers and I were a team. We would constantly help and assist each other so we can make goal. We made each other hard workers.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the overall experience I gained. I learned how to be a manager. Working here gave me so much an passion and drive when it came to making a store successful. It wasn't about the money it was about giving our customers what they wanted.
