Work was productive but challenging.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 27, 2015
You arrived at work, got your things in the locker before punching in. Talk to the manager, and they give you the update of the day. What specials are there for the day, what coupons are valid or not valid. You pretty much get to do a lot of everything until the very end when you clock out.
I enjoyed helping the customer, taking their clothes to the dressing rooms. Getting different sizes for them, making them feel at home with the store. I did enjoy ringing up as well, but my biggest challenge was getting credits from our customers. I did pretty good- I wasn't the best, but I did a decent job.
I got a long with most of my co-workers, but the one thing that really bothered me was that a lot of the management always talked among themselves. Sometimes ignoring customers, or calling us the associates to attend them when we already working on something else. Some times I felt like they were trying to be superior then us since they have a higher title that they use that against us.
All in all New York & Company was still a job, and I put my best foot forward and worked my hardest until the very end.
