buying clothes
bfly boutique (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CADecember 4, 2014
Pros: food
Cons: breaks
an typical day for me at work is pretty much when the customers come in and see all these clothes we purchases and want to buy them all , and the price is very reasonable for them and there satisfied with there purchase. Ive learned that its a lot more to clothes then we all think you have to know what the customers like and how much they wanna spend and the colors everything must go with your skin tone , far as management goes i have ran the store by myself with out my boss having to go back and check twice , the hardest part about working with retail is making sure everything is right and that your customers are happy , the most enjoyable things is that we are all satisfied with our purchase and you don't feel like you got cheated with anything you purchased

An Amazing and fun job.
Patricias (Former Employee), St. Louis, MODecember 3, 2014
Pros: i like that i can rent movies and books and get discounts on items
Cons: the raises every six months and the fact that they give out bonuses
A typical day at work for me would be opening the store and counting my money for my drawer. Then walking around to make sire the store is in good shape things are in place and looking nice. After i unlock the doors and turn on the open sign now were are ready for business.As the day goes on if i have any questions my manager is one phone call away. they help with the problems and makes sure that i understand before i get off the phone. The hardest part of the day at the job is explaining something to a customer and they are rejecting everything i say that makes it hard for me to make sure they understand when all they are doing is shutting me down. the most enjoyable part of the job is when the customer leave satisfied.

Boring and hard place to enjoy a job
Kmart (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: friends made
Cons: the bosses
A typical day at work is putting up with other co-workers non sense and helping others fix their problems. I did not learn anything from this job, except how to tolerate others attitudes. Management is horrible very disrespectful and bossy. My co-workers had more respect then the bosses. The hardest part was dealing with the wrongful treatment. The most enjoyable part was the friends I made.

Breath Of Fresh Air
12345 Clothing Boutique (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 7, 2014
Pros: 40% off clothing!
Cons: no healthcare, short breaks
Working for this company, I have gained knowledge from the manager himself as well as other staff members. Allowing me to creative in the workplace means everything to me. I am able to dress/style the mannequins, and store the way I feel will draw more customers in, as well as it being appealing to the customers. This Boutique is full of life and color. I also, learned a lot about high end designers I never knew about and the history of the store brands we carry. Being the only boutique on Traction Av (Art District) is sometimes hard to keep traffic steady, but we use social media to gain more customers, as well as our online store. A day at 12345 is always upbeat, from photo shoot, to different artists coming in to play music. Its always a day to talk about!
