Learning to work with all different types of people and customers, helping people.
Cashier (Former Employee), Arroyo Grande, CAOctober 20, 2014
Pros: working with the public, handling money, inventory
Cons: no medical coverage, not enough hours
Working with people from diverse backgrounds, helping the customers to find merchandise they are looking for. Dealing with the public, working as a team player. Being flexible, compassionate to the customers needs. The hard part was when you were the only cashier and had a long line of irate customers and had to get more cashiers up to the front of – more... the store to check out the customers. Managers were not always easy to deal with, so I had to learn to work with different types of personalities on the job and keep things friendly. Working with the public and helping the customers was the best part. – less

A good company to gain some clerical & leadership experience from.
Service Desk Supervisor (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLOctober 20, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: no pay increases
A typical day at work is from the moment you get there, until your shift end, you are completely busy. You have to know how to multitask and be people friendly at the same time.

I learned to be patient more and do not take a angry customer personal.

Management are good but we all could used more training, so that the entire company can be on one accord – more... and my co-workers are great to work with. As a Supervisor, they give me great respect and at the end of the night, with little staff, we still get the job done.

The hardest part of my job is not having enough help, to help the customers when they need help.

The most enjoyable part of my job, is making sure my customers are happy and satisfied when they leave. – less

I loved spaeking with the customers, it was hard to tell who were longtime friends and who was someone I just met.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Harper Woods, MIOctober 20, 2014
Pros: met one of my best friends
Cons: short hours and untrustworthy co-workers
Everyday was different. People were typically nice and every blue moon there was someone going through a hard day that needed a little sweetness to make there day, and the challenge was successful. Liked that people began to look for me regularly which made my day.

A stepping stone for young workers looking for a start
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Gresham, OROctober 19, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: high turnover rate
I enjoy my time here, an average day for me consists of unloading a truck of new freight and then rotating the product accordingly. Management is very friendly and understanding, co-workers are very accepting of new employees. The hardest part was getting and maintaining a consistent schedule, but the atmosphere there was definitely the most enjoyable – more... thing about Kmart. – less

Fun place to work. Lots of customer interaction
Apparel Associate/Cafe Associate (Former Employee), Puyallup, WAOctober 17, 2014
I was trained to follow a routine in the apparel department which was to either assist at the fitting rooms, or straighten the tables and racks of clothing in our department. When I was working in the Cafe, I had a list of cleaning tasks to complete between cooking fresh food and serving customers. I Learned how to be organized in apparel and efficient – more... and sanitary in a food service setting while working on my own. My coworkers were all friendly and all hardworking individuals. the hardest part was being switched from the apparel department to the cafe. I really enjoyed working around the customers and helping them with any apparel questions they had. – less
