Good second job, Happy customers, but Very little hours
Merchandiser/ In-store sales associate (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – June 16, 2017
For the most part I really liked this job. Any customer service job there will be some sour apples but a lot of the customers are excited new moms or excited grandmas getting thing for their daughter. You work alone a lot of the time and there can be a lot of down time while other times you are balancing multiple people. So basically because most of the time you don't need 2 people you are scheduled alone. Which makes sense but it leaves you unprepared if it gets busy and means there aren't many shifts to go around. Some weeks you work 6 hours and others you could work 15-20. The manager in our location was great. She was kind, helpful, understanding, and flexible. When I moved up to merchandiser/sales rep the district manager over that department was the same way. This made it really easy to work other jobs because they would work around your schedule. I had two other jobs while I worked there and rarely, if ever, had conflict issues.
Great management, room for advancement, usually easy
Low hours, inconsistent customer flow, terrible computer, sales goals
