Not for the weak of heart.
Pros: free sodas if you had your own cup-work shirts provided
Cons: understaffed for crucial high volume shifts, i.e working alone. dangerous job. basically overworked and underpaid.
High volume, fast paced atmosphere with multible job descriptions. Customer service is the main responsibility of all employees. An average day is ringing up sales, cleaning, receiving shipments, stocking, cashing checks, handling returns/exchanges, following planograms for displays and signage; all of which is included in my resume. The immediate in-store – more... management and coworkers were personable, but the upper management I found to be not so in touch with the store employees and their needs. The most difficult part of the job was inarguably handling nuisance customers diplomatically and keeping the flow of customers moving, especially when working the high volume shifts by one's self with no backup. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people and cultivating professional relationships where people would look forward to frequenting the establishment. – less
