Warehouse, Inventory and Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 23, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
I've learned a whole lot when I first started working at retail , I've learned how to work under pressure , how to channel the customers emotions like anger for example. Not only did I learn for my bosses and co-workers but also learned from the customers. The customers helped me shine the most by sharing their experiences , educating me about the merchandise – more... and that right their alone just helps me serve the customers a whole lot better. I believe if u talk to a customer properly and confidently then their shouldn't be any problems. The hardest part of the job I would have to say is when you're doing most of the work and most of the co-workers are doing half effort or call out on u on a busy day.. and that forces u to worry more and deal with more responsibility but in the end I take it as a learning experience because we all have to learn how handle situations like that. The most enjoyable part of any job would be the co-workers and even the bosses. Not all of them are cool for whatever reason but their must be some level of respect.. we must always be professional no matter if u love or hate you're co-workers. Mostly though I never had any issues with my bosses or co-workers because I always had a smile on my face. :) – less

Great Job
Footwear Associate (Former Employee), Woodland Park, NJFebruary 28, 2014
Great job, Managers were great except for one. Learned a lot about sneakers and stock, awesome co-workers, I wouldn't say that this job is hard at all, insufficient hours and pay. The most enjoyable part of the job were the co-workers.

Good Summer job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Laurel, MDJuly 11, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule, friendly customers and associates
Cons: not much opportunity for promotions or raises, unprofessional management.
Your typical day would begin with you entering the building lock all of your belongings in the locker and proceed to clock in. Depending on your department of either footwear or cashier, you would either sign in on a register or work and assist customers in footwear. Your day would not be hard or challenging at all, generally you have nice customers – more... and your associates are all cool people to be around. This job teaches a lot of patience, management often misinforms you on situations in order to cover for themselves, they often do not take responsibility for their actions and are immature. The hardest part would just be the patience you would have to have dealing with the company, in the early months of me working for the company about 8 months into the job, it was enjoyable and easy to deal with. The most enjoyable part would be the customers you dealt with, and how relaxed the work place could be. – less

Good first job for any teenager
Assist in the opening and closing (Former Employee), Hanover, MdMay 6, 2013
Pros: fun enviorment
Cons: management
A typical day at Modell's Sporting Goods envolved helping customers find what they came in looking for, or even using certain tactics to get them to buy something that's on sell or your item of the week. I learned how to be friendly to customers, how to handle rude or unreasonable customers, how to deal with customers and your co-workers in a professional – more... manner. The hardest part of my job was dealing with management and the drama with them. The most enjoyable part of my job at Modell's was learning everyday to be a better sales associate – less
