Position taught me a lot about what I wanted to get out of a career
Senior Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Goleta, CA – November 4, 2016
During my time at Styles for Less, I was a sales associate then promoted to Senior Sales Lead within the first 90 days of my hiring day. Every work day consisted of helping customers find what they were looking for, solving customers problems as well as any company issues that come up, delegating tasks to other sales associates, and assisting managers with different tasks. For the most part, my coworkers worked hard and contributed to the success of the company.
One major thing I learned to look for when searching for a career was to find a company that valued its employees and vice versa. It's important to me that my coworkers and leaders believe in the company and/or product as much as I do. I believe that this key component is what makes companies so successful.
The hardest part of being Senior sales lead was making sure all employees and customers on the sales floor were happy. I learned how to create a balance between disciplining employees but praising them as well and also making sure the customer got the best deal possible, while staying in the guidelines of the company.
I would say the most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet new people every single day, helping people make decisions and being able to track myself with the company.
