A typical day at work included opening the store , registers, filling out daily paperwork, updating displays, and sending out and receiving new merchandise from the warehouse or other stores. In the midst, of managing employees, sending out shoes, checking emails, filing paperwork, and cleaning I would provide excellent customer service to guests and encouraging them to purchase fashionable , trendsetting shoes. From working there I learned how to run a store, how to manage employees, how to deal with employees calling out, how to better lead myself, I taught myself professionalism, and how to run a business. My co-workers were the main reason I came to work everyday with a smile on my face, I hired or helped hire most of them and in conducting the interview , or co conducting the interview (in some cases) I made the interview fun, relaxing, and serious all in one so directly after the interview was over we had a relationship , even if they were not hired they would still come in and visit. The hardest part of the job was juggling my personal life, I worked 50+ hours a week getting paid commission and not being compensated appropriately. This store has pretty great shoes at an affordable price, it was just in a terrible location in the mall, and the area. The most enjoyable part of my job was updating displays, building a great rapport with the clients that I had the pleasure of assisting.
