Pros: flexible hours, convenient
Cons: short breaks, management, no organization, no job security
I worked for this company twice, two different stores and they both ended up closing down. I worked as a customer service associate, which consisted of transacting purchases, returns, and exchanges, but not limited to only that. People often times have their opinions about working retail and I agree for the most part, but I can honestly say that in 7 years I never had a customer to be too much to handle. I've always treated them with respect and greeted them politely, I expected to be treated as such and always was. Treat people the way you want to be treated is something that I learned first hand. At this store I have had so many different managers, some terrible and a few that were really good. the best part for me was meeting new people constantly.
This job would be great for someone just starting off (maybe a high school student)
