Friendly, easy going workplace
Sales Associate/Stock (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – August 3, 2016
A typical day working stock you start very early and could either be very easy going, just marking down merchandise prices and securing merchandise with security tags, etc. or be more involved with unloading pallets of new merchandise, processing and putting merchandise in it's correct department and trying to find room for over stock.
I learned how to be more engaging with customers as well as how to fit male customers for dress shirts, process merchandise, re price or mark down merchandise and do inventory.
Management for the most part was almost always friendly and understanding. Sometimes I felt they went about stuff the wrong way or could have better improved either the store or their rules.
My co-workers were usually very nice and helpful and very easy to get along with. I made a lot of friend and met a lot of interesting people.
I'd have to say the hardest part of the job would be the heavy lifting and moving that was sometimes part of working the stock position.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I worked with and the friendships I made. Although, I felt very accomplished after the days when we either had a lot of stock work to do in a short amount of time and finished on time or got a lot of heavy lifting and moving done.
Understanding management, hard work was acknowledged and rewarded
