Good retail-level environment, demanding corporate environment
Full-Time Merchandising Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 15, 2018
A normal day at work may include accounting, costume management, freight management, cashier duty or balloon inflation, depending on the hours. Provided one does the minimum--meet the email percentage quota or complete the necessary tasks for the day--the atmosphere can be fairly laid-back, Halloween and holiday spikes notwithstanding. Holiday traffic and customer problems tend to encompass much of the stress and issues. Corporate tends to be very demanding, and can make decisions that become very consequential or detrimental for the operations end. Increasing features provided by retail evolution means that associates and managers are given more breadth of responsibilities; be advised of this trend depending on how pay raises operate in different areas, as they are so far relatively acceptable in New York, they may not be elsewhere or in the future.
