Co-workers make it awesome.
Pros: you get alot of hands on training and coworkers are very helpful, plus commission based, and top performers recognized..
Cons: commission atmosphere can make it "tacky" at times, commission is less than most and general pay is terrible.
Arrive in the am, many times I was there before the scheduled MOD. Management would go to computer to review days duties/promos, etc while I would straighten the floor, clean if need be, straighten pips, clean bathrooms, assist with opening tills, or do any other task that was not completed from night before. Meet and greet customers and inquire why they were shopping with us. Help them pick out outfits for particular occasions, from hats, jewelry, clothes, down to shoes, place them in dressing rooms and assist with getting different sizes/colors or styles of items that would coordinate or fit customers shape. Assist them through their selection and ring them up at cash wrap. Provide receipt and thank customer and make them aware of upcoming promos, etc. Do go-backs and place items in size order. Order items if sizes are not in-store available for customer purchase. Clean store in-between customers, call birthday customers or let them know of specials via phone. Assist with phone orders and questions. Receive and unpack new merchandise, prep them for the pips/floor (steam), break down boxes, strategize new promo ideas, and trying to meet daily sales goals. Closing includes returning all go-backs, sizing entire store, vacuuming and cleaning as much as possible within 1/2 to hour.
