Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 16, 2014
A typical day at work required cleaning your department and making sure the floors were cleaned with no trash or debris as to hurt the customers. Setting new merchandise out and creating a display to catch the customers eye.
we had free lunches once a month, we could wear jeans every friday, if we had a problem management wanted to help, .
we were given our breaks in a timely fashion depending on how long we were working.
All three attorneys expected to have their work finalized first - ahead of everyone else. This was a salary job and some days were as long as 12 hours. There was no overtime. There was no office manager and only one co-worker.
we were given free llunches as long as we stayed in the office and continued to respond to demands.
Challenging and exciting position in upwardly mobile retail department store
Assistant Buyer (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 18, 2012
During my tenure at May I was introduced to many facets of marketing and retailing. They were all exciting and rewarding as well as preparing me for other positions in the future. I especially liked the travel and buying of each season's offerings. The most challenging portion would be the maintaining of the gross margin while marking down the slow sellers and clearing out the past season items while preparing for the new season shipments. Each phase of a retail organization has it's own challenges but those challenges also brings their own rewards when successfully conquered.
was introduced to many facets of marketing and retailing such as, buying, advertising, mark downs, call backs, vendor relations and more.
never sure how long day would last...but that is true for all salary positions.
