Sales (Former Employee), New Hampshire – May 29, 2014
Pros: good discount on products.
Cons: not a good job to survive on! poor management!
When I was hired I was promised a good amount of hours per week. Then when I actually got my hours, it was much less then I was promised that I had to look for another job. The pay was very low and the job is equal to a janitor, lifting,unloading truck,stocking shelves, dusting, sweeping and cleaning bathrooms. This job did not train me well with the – more... cash registers and products. The training on the products was up front on the computer standing while customers needed cashed out or needed assistance. The people I worked with where not helpful so it made it difficult to do my job correctly. The management was not helpful at all. The review consisted of a conference call with the district manager with the manager sitting next to me which made it uncomfortable to discuss anything. This was not an enjoyable job by far the hours were not enough to survive on and you will never get a raise (I was told by mgmt.) and the hours would never pick up. I regret ever accepting to work here! – less
Europa Facility Management Security Officer (Former Employee), Central London – May 23, 2014
Start with meet and greet, welcoming all staffs and visitors into the building, always smiling and professional, been polite, maintaining higher level of attention and been alert all times. Helping visitors to find what they want. Creating or updating ID pass for staff and visitors. Stoping staffs who doesn't have ID to sign visitors book. Sometime – more... staff doesn't like it but it is the requirement to enter the building. I have to deal with hard or unsociable staffs and visitors but I have to keep calm all time. The most enjoyable part is when some visitors cames back to say thanks for the service they received from me.
I can say I am peoples person
I have learnt how to interact with people and the value of customer services and also learnt to be part of team.
At the end of the day I have to hand over to my colleague that is taking over me and send email to my manager before finishing my shift. – less

Pros: professional environment, was able to develop my skills in the professional workplace, able to learn new skills working with various departments
Cons: travel from south jersey to new york
I would be responsible for being the lesion between Graphic Design and the client. Make sure the client was able to get all the art work for the promotion that Lancome was doing. I also communicated with marketing to see which promotions they were making and set up samples to send off to clients. I checked the budget for summer 2013 and prepared the – more... new budget for fall 2013. I needed to make sure that we had budget for the Sales Promotion to go through. This required me to work with the Finance Department. Finally on my spare time I would take MyLearning courses in Microbiology to further my knowledge about what a microbiologist would do in there Research and Innovation Department and why were they important. I also learned many different laboratory techniques on how to prepare samples and how to use various laboratory instruments. The most enjoyable part of my job was to be around employees who had a real passion to help the company and took pride in there work. This drove me to do better and work to my fullest potential. The hardest part of the job was the travel because I live in south jersey it was a long commute everyday to work but I really loved the work experience in Manhattan. – less
Productive place to work with bean bag throwing competition
Material Movement Specialist (Former Employee), N Little Rock, AR – March 12, 2014
Pros: we had a in house cafertia and a subway sandwhich shop close by.
Cons: just cause someone is smileing dosen't mean they are not serious.
First thing every morning is started with a meeting about productivity and or any problems in an around the warehouse and each persons assignment for the day, work location and forklift type. Most days I'd be on a stand up reach lift moving pallets from the VNA inventory areas and bulk locations. To manual picking locations for order fulfillment. On – more... other days I'd be in VNA on a swing reach lift taking in and moving out pallets in inventory. I learned how to drive a swing reach fork lift and how to take orders over the radio. My co works were very hard working and most have a positive attitude an very caring in nature. About their work and their co workers. The hardest part of the job was keeping up the pace and quota of pallet movements. The best part of the job is the completion of all the orders getting out at the end of the month on time. – less
