Enjoyed my job and the associates.
Ladies/Kids' Lead (Former Employee) – 21st & Garnett – November 19, 2017
Quick meeting with immediate supervisor to determine if priorities for the day changed overnight which sometimes it did change. Always checked the sales floor and then the stockroom for merchandise that may need to be taken to the sales floor. Some merchandise/products were required to be folded and neatly placed on tables according to brand, cost, style, and color. Since I was the lead I was required to rearrange one department or the other based on need. Answered customers incoming calls and customers that had questions while in the store.
I also worked in the jewelry department which taught me how to tell the difference between 10KT and 14KT. Also learned what metals could be resized without any problem. If I had any questions or problems the managers on the clock were also willing to help. We had computerized training that helped us keep up with information related to the entire store or related to our particular jobs.
Hardest part of the job for me would be assisting an upset customer and the most enjoyable part of my job at K-Mart would be working with the K-Mart co-workers/associates.
Management would treat associates with lunches or donuts.
Some associates would take longer breaks than others.
