A Fair Employer with Clear Expectations
Lead Display Merchandiser (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 10, 2016
Before the store opens my duties are very routine with few changes but once we are open for business, tasks are decided by the ebb and flow of customers. As the lead display merchandiser for the store my responsibilities were to keep the store in 'shoppable' condition which might include building new merchandise, keeping displays up to plan or instructing our stock team for maintenance.
The main skill working at Lamps Plus taught me was how to efficiently multi-task, personally I became very good at helping customers while fulfilling display duties at the same time.
Management was firm with our team but, understanding enough that we were still people who might have made the odd mistake every now and then.
My co-workers were easily the best part of my job. I was fortunate enough to work with people who were warm and welcoming and could find the time to address any questions or concerns I might have had. especially when I was first starting.
The hardest part of my job was assisting frustrated customers however, we always made sure to help the customer to the best of our abilities and exhaust every avenue we could.
The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that my tasks had a direct and visible influence on the store. If my duties were done and done well, our store looked significantly better which was a small reward every time something was completed.
