Great place to work if you're used to being on your feet all day
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 23, 2016
As a sales associate in the housewares department, I spend most of my days in that section of the store. I do anything from putting merchandise away, returning items that were returned to their rightful places multiple times a day, keeping my area clean, changing prices on objects, and so much more. I learned how to use a cash register my second day on the job so that I am ready to backup when needed. I also learned to manage my day and decide when my breaks are needed, as they are not taken at designated times. Management is amazing and very understanding, especially of new employees who have lots of questions. The co-workers are very helpful in teaching me things that I do not know how to do or do not know what they are. The hardest part of the job is definitely being on your feet for roughly 6-8 hours, with only a 15 minute break if you work 6 hours, or 2 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch if you work 8 hours. It definitely takes getting used to. My feet are still aching every day after roughly a month of working there, but it's worth it and they're getting better. The most enjoyable part of the job is making friends and the appreciation you get when you help customers to find items they are looking for. It doesn't always happen, but when it does, it makes it totally worth it.
