This is your typical boutique retail job.

30 minutes for lunch

Small boutique environment where you're paid hourly plus commission. I personally don't generally enjoy the commission environment if it means people start to work against each other. During my time there, I managed to enjoy making a commission without railroading any of the other employees, but I can't say the same for some of the other people I worked with.

A typical day of work is customer service, maintaining the presence of the store, and processing stock. Once I became a sales lead, in addition to the formerly mentioned tasks I had to be sure that each employee stayed while maintaining the presence of the store. I also became in charge in opening and closing responsibilities which included keeping track of inventory, counting the tills and preparing bank deposits/end of day paperwork.

The store was a little show place where women felt pretty.
Manager and Retail Sales Leader (Former Employee) –  Leawood, KSAugust 7, 2012
White House Black Market is a clothing store catering to women age forty and under.
It was always enjoyable when customers came in and left with bags under their arms. They enjoyed the attention they received, felling like they had been in the movie Pretty Women when they left.
The store was small back then and I had the freedom to arrange items to fit the space. Customer lists were kept in order to let them know when new item had come in. We also held Private showings for frequent customers and there were always lots of laughs. I remember my first sidewalk sale and making sure the sidewalk was loaded with merchandise. Women packed the store and we beat our sales goal by over ten thousand dollars. It was a good team effort on everyone’s part.

The hardest part was problely trying to keep the store looking full in between seasons.
Pros
i never had anyone work for me that i felt needed to be let go.
Cons
very little comunication with corperate.
