Learned valuable management skills while in a fun working atmosphere.
Pros: flexible schedule, fun atmosphere, lessons learned, paid vacation.
Cons: lack of opportunity for growth within the company, lack of benefits, pay.
A typical day at work consisted of: being wrapped in by other managers, going over daily goals with associates, customer servicing, cashiering, leading by example, filing out required paperwork, using effective communication with associates, and ensuring the store was presentable and had a positive vibe for both the employees and customers. I learned – more... how to be a leader through experience. As part of the management team, my co-workers consisted of three other managers and up to thirty associates. The hardest part of the job was knowing there was a lack of opportunity for promotion. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping mold young associates and giving the customers a place to comfortably shop at. – less
