Job that keeps you on your toes but is enjoyable.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Duarte, CA – June 15, 2018
Upon clocking in, you were expected to go immediately to work. Most recently, that put me at the fitting rooms or on the sales floor. Either way, I would go to the Customer Service and get all go-backs for apparel and take them to the Fitting Rooms. I'd then help sort them out by department (men's, boy's and girl's, etc) then go to my assigned apartment (if not assigned to the fitting rooms).
In my apartment or at the fitting rooms, I would continue working with the go-back, help customers and keep the area clean. At the fitting rooms, I'd also let customers in and out of the rooms, answer the store phone, direct calls according the phone line, and direct calls over the P.A. system per management on the walkie-talkies.
The hardest part of the job was staying on my toes when things got a bit hectic. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others, whether it be customers or fellow associates.
Occasional pot luck dinners to help others, occasional free snacks from management to say thanks for work, and just acknowledgement from management for good work.
