Pros: Laid back atmosphere, flexible scheduling
Cons: Short lunch breaks, lots of busy work, standing all day
This is a fun laid back work place and great for a first job.
I learned a lot about retail and management and inventory control. As well as customer service.
When I was a sales employee the management – more... was subpar. Not very motivational and lacked in delegating task and time management was not great.
When I was promoted to management and moved to a different location the management team I worked with was much better. Much better at motivating employees and striving to get employee to preform at a optimal level. Management at my new location was much better at task delegation and time management.
My coworkers were fun young people. I got along with almost everyone. When u accepted the management position relationships with coworkers changed. I was more focused on finding people that will help my store be successful as opposed to people I could be friends with.
Hardest part of the job was inventory management. We would get 20-30 boxes of merchandise every week and need to find a place to put it then remove and send back other merchandise that was not selling.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the friendships I built. I am still friends with some of my former coworkers to this day. – less
