Pros: was introduced to many facets of marketing and retailing such as, buying, advertising, mark downs, call backs, vendor relations and more.
Cons: never sure how long day would last...but that is true for all salary positions.
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.
