It was usually very fast-paced. Some days we would have a line out the door and into the parking lot. It can get stressful at times, but usually the employees get a hold of the chaos quickly. From working at Newk's I've learned that you have to work extremely hard to run a successful business and that you don't always need to have the manager around to run efficiently. At the Cypress store there were multiple times where a manager would be unavailable, so all the responsibility was put on the employees. However, we handled it effectively and without any issues. The environment was always full of life and it felt like a big family. I made some of my closest friends there and they will forever be apart of my life even though I no longer work there. The management at Newk's is, by far, the best management team I have ever worked for. They are understanding and genuinely try to connect with the employees. My managers were approachable and I was not afraid to voice concerns or ask questions. I'd say the hardest part of the job was how busy we could get. Sometimes it would just get crazy busy and it could get overwhelming. My favorite part was probably the people. Not just my coworkers, but also the customers that came in. I got to create relationships with a lot of the customers that came in and learned the regulars name. It always made their day, that I remembered them, which in turn made mine.
