Very professional yet non-intimidating work place
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Santa Barbara, CA – January 3, 2017
Working at Solstice Sunglasses was a great job to add to my work experience. It is the job in which I have had the most responsibility; I would be left alone in the store and manage everything on my own which was new for me. I learned how to uphold a store without any help, and that was a very important step for me to take in the professional world. My responsibilities consisted of opening/closing the store, customer service, selling the product, keeping the product organized and clean, keeping the store organized and clean, unpacking any merchandise that was sent to our location, bringing money to the bank, and reporting back to corporate at the end of each day. My co-workers were helpful because they had all been there longer than me so they helped me out. I worked well with all of them. The hardest part of my job would be to handle all the customers when I was alone in the store. During busy hours I would have to deal with over ten people in the store and it was difficult to juggle all of them. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see and learn about the product. Solstice is a high end sunglasses boutique and part of my job was to be educated on the designers whose sunglass lines we sold. That was definitely the coolest part of the job because I am very interested in that industry.
Desolate location which led to many slow days
