Started as a cashier, ended as a Buyer's assistant in corporate
Sales, Bookkeeper, Assistant to the Buyer (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – November 15, 2017
No day was ever the same, but it was very fast paced. I interacted with vendors who supplied us with product. Answered phones, lots of paperwork. I learned how to use a computer, to how to estimate how many thousands of socks to order for all the stores. Great workplace, very family oriented.
This goes back many years.....I started when my kids went to school. I really enjoyed the retail store the most, there were a lot of advancement opportunities. I went from the floor, to the cash counter, was promoted to bookkeeper. I won several customer service awards. Mitchell Model would often visit the stores, so we had to be spot on. I considered becoming a department manager, but declined to take the opportunity to work at the corporate office in Manhattan.
Great culture, very fast paced, enjoyed all the coworkers
Often had to stay late, and travel to NYC difficult
