In my experience as a retail associate, I realized that you can't trust a salesman, nor can you befriend them. Very self indulged individuals, set on being better than everyone and not minding getting someone removed that they feel is a threat. However, I did learn how to manage my time and how to talk to people in whatever mood they were in, to bring them up and smile. Which, in the long-run made my day a lot better. The hardest part about my workday was, organizing the shoes in order. It would take hours and sometimes days to organize the back room. Boxes, some empty some full, all over the place constantly, could make a sane person lose it. But, all in all it was a decent experience.
