A typical day is consistent of selling items to the customers, selling credit cards, restocking the shelves of missing merchandise, cleaning the department, and meeting quotas for the month. I've learned how to constantly meet quotas that companies need, how to make sure that customers get what they want, and how to keep professionalism and integrity during high energy parts of the day such as Black Friday. The management wasn't the best to work around. They often went missing when customers were demanding to see them or to speak to them. That doesn't go for all of the managers who worked there. My co-workers were hard workers. Any question that they had, they relied on me to answer them and they learned quickly. The hardest part of my job has to be taking the role of the managers without having their authority to override certain things that need their approval. The most enjoyable part of the job is having customers who don't know anything about a certain item and being able to teach them about that said item.
