High volume store.
My experience at Stride Rite, started out good. I have never worked in retail and wanted to try it. I was promoted four months after being hired, from Part time Sales Associate to Full Time Sales Associate. I picked up the skills pretty quickly. The typical day at Stride Rite, there could be some very hectic days like the weekends, or really slow days like during the week. Typical days at Stride Rite are unpredictable. Being at Stride Rite, I have learned a lot about myself and business. I learned that I can handle any situation and still get my work done. No matter what gets thrown at me, I will always be prepare. Management is great. It is not overwhelming. I worked with some of the most amazing people. Most of everyone that I work with worked together to get big shipments done, and making sure that the store ran smoothly. The hardest part about the job, was dealing with difficult customers and be able to give good customer service. But the most enjoyable part of the job, was being able to interact with the children and make their process of shopping for shoes fun and joyous for them and their parents.
