Pros: co-workers and customers.
Cons: low pay, and no benefits.
I typically assisted in pushing merchandise from the stock area onto the sales floor. Organizing, folding, and arranging the merchandise for the convenience of the customers. Dressing mannequins, and "look" hangers with the latest fashions on showcase in the department I was assigned to for the day. I met with customers and assisted them with locating and choosing the best merchandise for their particular needs. The co-workers were very helpful and kind, and always looking to help.
The best part of the job was getting to see all of the merchandise from top name designers, and setting up props to advertise new lines and products for designers. the hardest part of the job was dealing with my everyday life, like transportation because the pay was so small, and no benefits were offered for the position unless I had a college degree. But working with a wonderful staff of people, and interacting with the customers was always well worth the effort.
