On A typical work day the first thing you'd do is check-in, go over the store goals and expectation for that given day, self-productivity/achievement goal(s), and evaluate/get informed on any store updates. Make sure you are presentable and ready to work. On the 'floor' you would greet customers, introduce them to the products and have the customers receive a 'wellness experience'. This 'wellness experience' requires minimal training and is hands-on most of the time. Educate the customer on any new products/events. Ring the customer up at the register and thank the customer for coming. At the end of the day, you would close out transactions (Supv.) and hold an overview on productivity, clean and organize the store, replenish any products and make the store presentable for the next day.
In my experience working with colleagues was like having an extended family, in every way. The supervisors were understanding and compassionate. My hair and skin was in supreme condition because of the products. At the time, you got great deals on selected AVEDA spa locations.
This position was as close to a perfect escape from my full-time job anyone would ever get. Mainly, because I enjoyed what I did and made extra money doing it. Unfortunately, if you are a single parent with responsibility, holding this position can be very challenging. And you will sacrifice much of your 'quality' time with loved ones, especially during the Holidays.
