Overall fun and fast-paced. Being able to play the games with the customer really helped build connections with said customer.
Sales Associate/Stockroom Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – July 4, 2016
my time as an employee at Marbles: The Brain Store was, indeed, filled with fun times, and challenge. As it was my first actual job in the real world, I did not truly know what to expect, but thankfully my fellow co-workers were very understanding and helpful.
A normal day would have me come in either in the morning or the afternoon. My usual tasks would consist of a majority in the stockroom, organizing product, printing pricing labels, checking inventory, as well as pulling/pushing product out to the sales floor.
There would be times while I had been setting up a display, that I would be caught by a customer with a question. The reason I say "caught," is due to the fact that, on most days, the job was fast-paced, and I did my best to treat it as such. If there wasn't anything to do, I would find anything to do, whether it be sweeping, or just wiping displays down. This was one of my favorite parts about Marbles.
While I was a part of the "Brain Stem" of Marbles, the store had actually met one of their largest sales goals since opening. The manager and other employees had said that it was due to me, but I'm sure it was mostly the sales team along with everyone putting in their own work. A person can only do so much on their own, but when in a team, it means much more as a collective.
Overall, I was, and still am very grateful for my time as a Marbles "Brain Coach/Brain Stocker."
Fast-paced, productive, organized
the only real thing is that it was somewhat based on commission, but I had expected that beforehand.
