Pros: great co-workers and customers
Cons: management could have been improved
A typical day at work is a busy day, filled with positive and energized people and co-workers intending to make sales and help customers with their needs and just have a good day in general. I learned a lot about customer service and how to work well under pressure, how to keep calm as well as how to encourage customers to buy items and merchandise by letting them know about sales and new arrivals. I personally think that the management could have been more organized and critical but overall it was basic. My co-workers were very helpful when I was in need of help and were very up-lifting with the positive attitudes they acquired. They encouraged me to push myself to my limits and to try the best I can in every situation that occurs in the work place. The hardest part of the job was merchandising the visual display in the beginning, as it was my first retail job, but with the lending hands of my co-workers I quickly mastered it and I enjoyed setting up the display areas afterwards. The most enjoyable part of the job(s) that I have done was learning in a positive environment, with positive people, and with my positive outlook, I had a positive outcome and I still do in the retail area as well as a cashier. I also enjoyed being in the retail workforce simply because I love fashion and know quite a bit about fashion too.
