Pros: experience in retail, making peoples day
Cons: no breaks, double shifts sometimes
A typical day at work for me was to arrive at 9:00 in the morning to open up shop, I usually organized and cleaned the store in the first few hours while waiting for customers to show, and happily introduce myself when they come around. I ask open ended questions to get to know the customer, as well as observing what they are wearing, what type of condition their clothes are in. My manager Carisa Ball is a really nice hard working and respectable woman, she was the greatest manager. Co-workers were also really nice, we always got along. The hardest part of the job was when someone needed a specific length of chain or something like that and we didn't have it in stock for them right there. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid to have fun at work because all my co-workers and bosses were really kind and respectable people.
