Pros: free candy while on the job, discounts, 45 minute lunches.
Cons: downtime when not the holidays
When i arrive i ask what needs to be done. I clean, stock, help customers, hand out samples, merchandise, handle cash, credit cards, checks & gift certificates.
I learned how to merchandise and how to change out ads. They taught me how to open and how to work in this company.
The management ran things smooth and effectively.
My co-workers are among the kindest & most friendly ladies i've ever encountered. I enjoy working with each and everyone of them.
The hardest part of my job would have to have been opening for the first time alone. I was nervous and.was secret shopped. I received a 90% score. I got everything done on time and actually received a job well done on my next scheduled day of work.
The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the customers. Because of the area we are in, most of our clientele is elderly. I have a passion for helping the elderly and have volunteered in a nursing home for a summer when i was a preteen. So i really enjoy working with the customers and watching them leave with a smile & knowing i gave them the best customer service i could have.
