Awesome atmosphere, Felt like a big family, Great Opportunities for someone in the Fasion Field
Pros: employee discount, enjoyable music playlists, & merchandise
Cons: all sales positions were part time, & had no benefits
A typical day at work consisted of a Daily.
the Daily had the employees and managers on duty for that specific day, where your zoned for each hour, and when your break was (tens and halfs).
It also had the Slant Attached which basically announced any new promotions going on, sales, Opportunities, activities going on within your district, floor layouts – more... with Merch, and the ideas and inspiration between all of the different sectioned off clothing/brands (i.e. Gypsy Warrior, Hippie chic, Casual Festival)
I learned How to operate a Cashier, mpos (mobile point of sale), and how to take/transfer telephone calls.
Also how to operate the stock room, the proper way of folding garments, and how to deal with Stressful situations well remaining calm.
Management was great in making sure we were where we needed to be, had proper training in all zones, kept us up to date with the daily sales we made, returns we checked in, and our goals for the days.
my coworkers grew to be like a family, due to us having to interact so much (i.e. Switching zones, transferring phone calls between floors, Helping each other with send sales or with customers in general.
The hardest part of the job was maintaining the floor between busy hours or through holiday.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that I fit the store demographic (age,style,lifestyle) so it made work enjoyable...not so much like a duty. – less
