Pros: you interact with different people every day
Cons: short breaks, i never have the weekends off
A typical day at work consists of putting out stock, answering phones, paperwork, interacting with customers, and managing sales associates.
I have gained better work ethics, time management, teamwork, problem solving, and the value of customer service.
While all levels of management focus on the big picture and success of the company, lower level – more... management is more laid back, personable, and hands-on. Upper level management is more formal, and direct.
My co-workers range from the age of 16 to 30, so there is a wide range of maturity level in the workplace. We tend to hire people that are up beat, friendly, and easy to talk to since our company focuses so much on customer service.
I wouldn't say this is the hardest part of my job, rather the most frustrating would be projects are never ending. Since I work in retail we are constantly moving, changing, and reorganizing merchandise. There is never a finished product.
The most enjoyable part of this job are my co-workers. Being around people that I get along with makes going to work fun and interesting. – less
