Very Productive
Rite Aid Pharmacy (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 4, 2015
It was always a busy day at last company. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a lot of shipment coming in and having to deal with a busy weekend. But it did make it a good learning experience as to what to order and what not to, and how to handle shipments on a weekly basis.

Retail enjoyment working with the public
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Friendliess and helpfulness on both ends.
Cons: Pay rates and raises
A typical day at work is pretty much fast paced and constantly on the move. Management most of the time is understandable and very caring. My co-workers are sometimes just as needy as the customer and that helps to keep me on my toes. I have definitely enjoyed working retail most of my life and I have never really had a bad day at work. I am very much a people person and I can get along with most people that I meet daily.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Newark/Heath and Buckeye Lake OhioJune 2, 2015
While the amount of work given in one shift was adequate and challenging at times, I was always up for the task and completed it before my shift was over. The breaks were nicely spaced out to the advantage of the employees. This was true of all my retail positions.
The difference between the position in retail was with the management of each facility.
Management at Christopher and Banks/CJ Banks and JCPenney were the ideal management systems you would want to work under. Speedway was manageable though it was unsteady at times.
Dollar General had horrible management. Our manager didn't care about anyone but herself. Not once did she give commendation and I witnessed her cruel mind not only toward me but over half the staff. it was so bad that many quit and I tolerated it until I found other work. If you did anything that wasn't to her approval she would either yell at you in front of customers or would refuse to schedule you at all for an extensive amount of time. It was worse if you requested a certain day off or called off due to an unexpected event like getting a flat tire and not having a backup ride to work. She wouldn't speak to you when you called in nor would she schedule you for work for about 2 weeks at a time.
Between all of these places, you were told there was room for advancement. However when it came to advancing, I would work on and do everything expected of a person to move up in rank. Unfortunately none of my efforts were acknowledged and I didn't make any progress.

Steady retail work
Dollar General (Current Employee), Haskell, ARMay 8, 2015
Pros: Fun, steady work environment.
Cons: Hours and pay.
I mostly run register, clean, and throw freight. I learn to deal with customers and work as a team with other workers. Management is good at my store. My co-workers are nice and help me when I need it. Having to juggle multiple tasks at a time can be quite stressful, but I do the best I can. I enjoy putting up magazines and getting to meet different people. I've made lots of friends.

Hickory Farms
Store Manager (Former Employee), Clay, NYApril 15, 2015
Sampling goods, verbal and non-verbal selling were the typical day starting with register balancing, change order, opening and inventory. I learned how people respond to different approaches in sales. The management was exemplary in what they did and how they coached and managed. My co-workers were the best in the district with my guidance. Hardest part of the job was saying good bye for another year as the store is only open from October/November through December. The sales and talking with the customers.
