Pros: flexible work times, independance
Cons: part-time with no benifits
A typical day would be to arrive at the set location remove and pack-up older stock and replenish with new weekly magazines, then by following a planogram pull older books, re-planogram existing books and then put out all new book arrivals in the proper locations. Set up displays of products.
I usually work independently or with one other employee when the work load is heavy.
I have to deal with store management when I am needing to set-up a display and need extra floor space. I only have to deal with management of Metro News if a change has occurred and I need to get new directions.
The hardest part of the job is that it can be labor intensive at time, there can be a lot of lifting of heavy boxes of books.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility, the independence , I really enjoy the organizational part and finally I enjoy helping the customers with their inquiries.
