Productive and fun workplace.
Pros: discount, atmosphere, energy, people
I typical day at work consisted of everyday duties. Duties that included; ensuring the store was clean for customers, making sure that all the clothing looked appealing (eg. folding t-shirts that have been unfolded by customers), greeting customers and asking if they needed assistance, etc.
I learned through this job very important customer service qualities. It was my first job so I was learning everything for the first time. I believe that Aeropotale was a great company to learn skills from in terms of customer service. I also learned how to operate a cash register, I found this to be very useful because the skill is often required in many jobs, being well experienced with it is very useful.
Overall the management was good, however after making a comment about cutting my hair to donate to cancer I was told that I would no longer be able to work there because I wouldn't look good enough for the companies standards. I found that comment to be very discriminating and it changed my very on the job and my experience.
My co-workers were very great people, we all built great relationships with one another and each of them were hard workers which was great to work with.
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with maintaining the appearance of the store, only because it needed constant attention. Even though it was difficult I enjoyed it, I gained time management skills from it and learned how to work efficiently.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment. I would go to work and there would always be a positive vibe in the store.
