Realtor (Former Employee), Fort St John, BC – March 19, 2013
Pros: i really enjoy meeting people.
Cons: totally commission.
I think the management of any business sets the base for the office. The management is this office was very unorganized and as a active realtor as well as manager his comptetiveness prevented him from consulting with his sub-brokers openly and without bias.

SALES ASSOCIATE/CASHIER (Former Employee), New York, NY – March 12, 2014
I was a sales associate/cashier. The job mostly required assisting customers with any problems that they had. Also, making sure the stock was properly displayed. I learned how to work with a cash register and became more of a peoples' person on the job. The management was very strict but, it was good because they kept everything in order. Most of my – more... co-workers were great people who I enjoyed working with. I don't think anything that I had to do here was exceptionally hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the customers and my co-workers. – less
Sales Cashier (Former Employee), manhattan ny – March 7, 2014
Pros: helping guest, set schedule
Cons: short breaks, poor management
A typical day for me was doing an 8 hour shift behind the register dealing with many different types of people. I learned many different ways to tell a fake bill from a real bill without using a money pen. The management was ok. I felt like they didn't really care about what the smaller positions ( cashiers, floor workers etc) had to say. If we felt – more... like a supervisor was being rude or unfair to us it didn't matter. Being promoted was also hard. Although I was only there for 6 months, I wanted to do more. I wanted to become a Register Complex Supervisor (RCS). Every time I brought it up i was told I wasn't fit for the job by my Current RCS. The hardest part of the day was trying to communicate with the many tourist that came from a different country and didn't speak English. The most enjoyable part of the day was being able to help the different guest and see them leave with a smile knowing that you helped them have a great experience at the store. – less
Handyman and trash out of vacant properties (Former Employee), Tri-cities (Fremont, Newark, Union City & others) – March 4, 2014
Pros: enjoyed being part of a team effort and working for my grandparents.
Cons: often there could be too much time between jobs, especially as the boom market declined..
This job started while still in school. After graduation the real estate boom of foreclosures was at its peak. Was very busy for a couple of years, with some downtime between jobs as new listings became available.
A typical day was receiving a job order for "trash out" of a new listing or bank owned property. Each property was different in what was – more... needed to prepare it for the real estate market. Duties included yard work, tree trimming, removing personal belongings and objects (furniture) left behind, window, bathroom, kitchen appliances, floors....basic house cleaning and removal of interior/exterior debris, hauling to dump or charity.
Co-workers were customarily my brother and Mom as the jobs were provided by my grandparents who are real estate brokers/owners. So it was a family endeavor.
Jobs were labor intensive requiring strength and endurance, some more than others. Because it was my grandparents business reputation, I enjoyed their approval in knowing they were satisfied and I helped them to sell a clean property. I learned alot about small job repairs that will be useful throughout my life and someday, home ownership. – less
