Fast-paced and make sure to have a good relationship with your coworkers!
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Cloverdale, BC – 21 April 2017
A typical day at work was fast-paced as customers would constantly be coming in and purchasing. This is especially true if you're working the cash; You would have to be able to efficiently and effectively go through a line-up that would span all the way to the back of the store, finish any additional tasks such as pricing and sorting through items to be returned to the shelves and all the while coordinating with your coworkers to ensure that there is a smooth flow of tasks and all customers are helped. Add to this that you have to have a more than passing familiarity with the location of constantly changing and expanding stock means you must be alert and focused while tending the cash. While it was physically and mentally challenging, it really helped to hone my ability to manage time, multi-task and interact with customers and coworkers alike.
