At Plato's, we do a lot. People think it is a normal job, it's not. We do everything. We are second hand, but we are still in demand, our store is so busy. I am part of the management team. There is no "summary" of Plato's closet. A typical day at work is observing highest priority tasks and delegating tasks to sales associates, doing projects, buying items from customers, keeping the store neat, stocking the sales floor, tagging all the clothes that come in, back stocking items that come in, running reports, and opening or closing registers. There is probably more I am forgetting. There is always something to do at Plato's. I have learned so much from Plato's, I grew so much as a person and appreciate every bit of the three years I have spent there. The hardest parts of my job are when we have to let people go and the slow turnover rate of management. Sitting in the same position for years has been hard, even though I love my job. My favorite part of my job is to make people happy. Either customers or my coworkers. I love to teach and train sales associates and new hires. I love helping customers find outfits, they are always leave so happy. Plato's has it's rules, but, you have the creativity to make it your own store. Plato's is your store, your ideas, yourself.
