My typical work day consisted of receiving a "chat-in" about my goal for the day, the store's goal for the day, and my selling goals. The owners of the franchise I worked for had poor judgement in management. The store I worked for had inconsistent store management; for example, the store manager that hired me ended up leaving within a month of my getting hired. I did not feel like a valued employee with this specific store. I did not feel comfortable with the HR manager and regional manger. I felt that I could not confide in the HR manager about any qualms I had. The hardest part of the job were the hours and lack of respect for employees' schedule requests. I went from part-time to full time in the 8 months that I was there and did not receive a pay increase. Commission was offered, but never received. The workplace culture of the store that I worked at was extremely competitive in an unhealthy manner. The only enjoyable part of my job was visual merchandising. I worked under the assistant manager with visuals and with my help earned the store 100% on visuals. All in all, based upon my experience in that particular store, I do not wish to work in a retail environment in the future.
