A typical day included processing shipment and helping customers. On busy days, I usually spent most of the day on the register. I learned how to use an older, non-computerized, register. That was new for me. My managers were really welcoming. They made sure I got all my training so I could be part of the team as soon as possible. My coworkers were awesome. We all had weird little quirks that fit together like puzzle pieces. I've stayed in contact with some even after leaving. The hardest part of the job was the furniture orders, until I got the hang of it. The way we had to put the orders into the register was complicated. Despite that, I loved working there because of the atmosphere. I didn't have to hide my tattoos to meet some perfect image. I got my tattoos for my mom, my aunt and my heritage. At previous jobs, it was mandatory to cover them at all times. It felt like I was ashamed of them and I didn't like having to hide them even though I understand that it didn't fit the image of the company.
Sometimes management would treat us, i used the discount all the time because there were so many things I wanted.
If there was a problem on the register we had to call a manager
