Cons: short breaks, small emp. discount, little pay
A typical day at work starts by a 5 minute/touch base with the MOD. They let us know the goal for the day (cumulative amount of money to be made by closing), whether or not the goal was made from the previous day, safety for the month, focus of the day, and current sales, discounts, etc. From there we get zoned out, each employee is responsible for a zone in the store; keeping it clean/shop-able, Loss provention, and providing customer service.
My management team is..quite a problem.
They don't quite get along with one another which reflects on the job. Their lack of communication and respect for one another shows as well.
My co workers, is the exact opposite, I love my co workers. We all get along, we even hang out outside of work.
The hardest part of the job is closing on busy nights because the store has to be 100% clean and organized before going home, which can be anytime between 1.5hours-6+hours after closing* (on holidays) and dealing with upset customers.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the overall fashion aspect. You get to see the clothes before they're on the salesfloor, if you work with visuals, you get to see the effort they put into where the merchandise goes and how it's placed..if fashion is your passion it's a great place to be.
But I'm 21 years old.With piling bills. Bills that are barely getting paid with my bi-weekly checks. My co workers are 18 - 20 years old, with little bills and responsibilities.
