Pros: good advertising would bring in sales traffic, sales transactions were easy to complete
Cons: long hours with minimal down time, different management styles with each their own stipulations, sometimes varying per associate and changing of rules based not on regulations but moods or stress
days were established by shifts begining daily with a meeting. an 'up board' system is used to give equal chances to each sales associate to have a sales opportunity. managers were available to handle any manager required tasks mostly. the co-workers varied in personality and made the 'down time' go quickly, just the mix of personalities made this also the fun part of the job. usually each shared their experience with the other associates so we could emphathise and learn from their input. the hardest part of the job was standing and working open to close on heavy sale days, almost non stop walking and talking to the customers. the most enjoyable part of the job was getting to constantly know new people, customers, you never knew what could occur, each was an adventure and some gave great opportunity to the entire team to assist in varying situations.
