Pros: my work schedule, learning experience, fashion, and meeting new people daily.
Cons: management that doesn't believe in teamwork, last minute schedule changes, and onsie items
A typical day at work; I come in have a quick run down with my visual manager about what we have in store to do today and how the day before went if i wasn't there. We put new merchandise out daily; filling the store, while doing so we merchandise them. Place clothes in places we think would best help that item sell. Also, check emails daily looking – more... for any updates, launches, promotions, or markdowns that may have dropped. I've learned how to manage my time better as well as being detailed and efficient in what needs to be done. The only thing about being a Merchandiser, we have many responsibilities and duties that need to be done daily within our shift. That being said, you would think management would be more supportive, helpful, or even appreciative, but they're not. Management, instead of being involved in what's going on in their store, they would rather throw the work on you and expect it to be done with little to no support or appreciation. CoWorkers, some, are excellent. We are all hard working and eager to work as a team to get the job done and have our store looking and running at top performance. All employees at my location just wish for a more appreciative, helpful, motivating management team. I enjoy working with clothes being that I love fashion. Putting outfits together, merchandising and seeing the merchandise sell makes you feel you have done your job in helping the company succeed. – less
