Was fun at first but became hostile working environment
associate (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – November 7, 2018
A typical day at work involved cashiering, stocking shelves, straightening shelves, sweeping the store, cleaning bathrooms, taking out trash. I learned the products and became a very helpful salesperson. I learned to engage with customers, establish trust and commonalities. Manager(s) were wonderful, supportive and encouraging. Assistant Mgr was another story. So intent on impressing his manager, he often kept us extra late. Lacked creativity and became hostile as more pressure was placed on him. Workplace culture was mostly pleasant among coworkers. Hardest part of the job was signing people up for store cards, for a not pushy person especially. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping customers find what they wanted, and cashiering because it gave me a chance to engage the customer and make them feel good about their shopping experience.
short lunch breaks, but that's retail
