Hardest part of the job
Written by Merchandise Associate (Current Employee) from Sterling, VA on November 27, 2017
The hardest part of my job was having to interact with many different personalities from both customers and coworkers. This made it difficult to communicate at times. Another hard part of the job is the pressure the companies to meet corporate standards and goals while having a scarce amount of associates in the store.
