Bright and happy place to work with constant smiles
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Anaheim CA – February 19, 2014
It's always very bright and happy and the friendship between all of the coworkers is beautiful. I love all the people there and I love helping all the customers, especially since so many are international. They always love the hospitality our store creates. Typically I spend my days helping customers, always greeting them with a smile and telling them about our current deals. Its a small store so you have to address every customer or else it feels kind of awkward for the customer and you. I also clean, restock, man the cash register, and other things a sales associate typically would do. Again, it's a small store so we all kind of keep it together. Like I said before, there is always a lovely friendship between me and my coworkers (other sales associates and supervisors both) but as far as management, it's not the best. They're not intentionally mean or anything but they just seem kind of careless. No going the extra mile. They won't do things to really help you unless it helps them, too. And when things happen, they aren't very sympathetic. They'll still accommodate you but only to the bare minimum and with many sighs and "joking" comments. Little to no advancement opportunities. However, they are very willing to work with pretty much any availability as long as you have at least two days fully available to work. I make it sound worse than it is. These things are true but they don't consume the majority of your experience. I have had very pleasant experience here and it's always a fun environment. :)
Meeting international people, friendly coworkers, Disneyland discounts and perks (Disneyland pass, occational tickets, discounts in the park, etc.)
No advancement, lack of sympathy, pressure for competition.
