sorting clothes, sweeping floors, helping customers can be rewarding.
Floor Clerk (Former Employee) – Litchfield, IL – February 5, 2018
i usually worked 5:00-9:00 several week nights and 7-8 hours on the weekend. After the crew saying 'Hello', usually began checking isles for straightening, stocking needs, customer needs, and make sure nothing was stolen. Week nights could be slow, which meant more time to chat, or help someone else or catch up on work left from the previous shift. Weekends could be 'maddening'!! Extremely busy, so many customers, there might be 3-4 at a time wanting your help! Always busy, almost always rewarding. I had opportunity to help someone and make their day. Sometimes, people were not happy about a product, or lack of one, and then things took a different tone. It was always important to be polite, and try to be sensitive to that customers needs. Usually paid off. We had many customers that were regular faces. Popcorn helped ! I learned the importance of placement, appearance of displays, teamwork, and keeping areas clean. The hardest part of the job was the heaviness of some of the stock we had to put up on shelves or hang. The best part was being able to make someone's day a little better. And seeing the new products!
