The job demands that you are a cooperative member of a team, ensuring that sales goals are met, loss prevention standards are upheld, and a good level of communication is maintained between you and your co-workers. Sales associates will be responsible for keeping a heads-up attitude, assisting customers and keeping the store clean, safe of obstructions and other hazards, and visually appealing. In a typical day, a sales associate will greet, relay promotions to customers, sell merchandise, manage the fitting rooms, work the cash registers, move and take inventory of stock, and help maintain the appearance of the store. The hardest part of the job can be dealing with unhappy customers, however, the most enjoyable part of the job comes from helping those customers leave with a good impression of you and the company.
