productive and happy environment
Sales Assistant (Work Experience) (Former Employee) – V&A – November 14, 2016
A typical day as a retail assistant often consists of maintaining a store environment that is a pleasant experience for all customers by managing many responsibilities simultaneously. Work begins fairly early in the morning, often before the retail location opens, and an 9-to 5 hour workday begins. Retail assistants handle a wide variety of routine tasks, such as managing cash; ordering stock; and maintain store display and assisting customers. In addition, a retail assistant can expect to deal with customer complaints, and other unexpected things that occur in a retail environment. On average, retail managers may work as many as 25 or more hours per week.
