The workplace culture was of a team. In large part, the contribution of each member made the store very successful. We had a limited amount of staff, but each knew their role and performed above and beyond that role. Daily we crossed over to one another's role to get to the finish line.
Management was confident in staff members, and was accessible on a moment to moment /daily basis.
I learned that staying abreast of product knowledge and necessary new processes made the flow of daily business simple. Being proactive also makes work easier overall.
Daily traffic was high on a constant basis, requiring over 10,000 steps. It was a great atmosphere, with the ability of helping others to gather materials toward making their dreams come true.
The hardest part of the job was the limitation of sources required to fulfill the sample requests by clients, which they needed to approve the material.
I enjoyed the variety of each day, no day was the same!
Fun events with vendors and designers.
Short staffed. Did not get the PK meetings that other departments were able to attend.
