When I joined the Gymboree team in Kitchener, the store had just opened. I helped get the store together prior to the opening day. A typical day at work would be talking to customers and fulfilling their needs. Somedays it could be slow but we remained productive by folding the clothing and making sure everything was neat. We greeted customers as soon as they walked in the door and gave them time to walk around before approaching them.
The management was excellent. The manager really got a long with everyone and talked to you as a friend. The co-worker dynamic was awesome. We call talked and got along.
The hardest part about the job was that because it was a new store, not a whole lot of people knew we were there so for a while, the customer flow was little.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to interact with the little kids that came in with their parents.
fun environment, easy going
