Pros: Good hours, fun environment
A typical work day consists of assisting customers on their needs and inquiries, organizing the sales floor in order to keep a neat presentation of items, as well as managing the cash register and making sure customers had a good shopping good experience.
I solidified and further developed my communication and social skills while working at boathouse, as well as reading customer body language.
The people in management are very responsive and positive. They are unrelentingly helpful and motivate employees to exude their best on the sales floor. They are very good at teaching us the necessities of working at Boathouse. My co-workers are also fun to work with, and communicative, they also make long shifts worth while.
The hardest part of my job is when it gets busy and the store sometimes becomes very crowded and it is hard to clean up after customers and help them at the same time. Although, this is also the most enjoyable part of my job, it is fast paced, and it is rewarding to have the satisfaction of helping customer finding what they need.
