Sears was a customer service based retail store, enjoyable environment.
Sales, Mattress Consultant (Former Employee) – Port Richey, FL – June 15, 2019
Your day at Sears can be going along smoothly and then before you know it, you have multiple customers, phone is ringing, and you hear your name over the intercom. I enjoyed these moments and found them challenging. While working at Sears I learned a great deal about not only the mattress and retail industry, but I learned a great deal about appliances which I had not expected. I also learned about signage and inventory in retail.
The best part of my day was of course, closing a sale. I filled the customers need, they left happy with their purchase and I felt a feeling of accomplishment. Hardest part was having to tell a manager I had a cancellation or return. It wasn't often, but I took it as a person opportunity to improve.
Worked part-time and the hours were flexible.
Retail holiday hours are long and late, but it's retail.
