Pros: you're always busy, the day goes by fast
Cons: over whelming for minumum wage
I like working at this job very much. I was hired as a seasonal employee so I'm not sure how much longer I will have the job, but for the time being I learned a lot of skills that I can use for the jobs to come. I learned how to process merchandise, which meant unloading the truck, organizing all the merchandise in the box from home goods, to food, to clothes and shoes for men, women and children, It's a lot to do and some times over whelming when you find out you have to work a 10-12 hour day, even though you were only scheduled for 4.5 hours. As you are doing your stock clerk duties, you're constantly being called to the floor to do what they call recovery, which is picking up all the clothes on the floor and putting them back on a rack, sometimes you have to showcase the jewelry to customers, and sometimes you are put in the fitting room for 15 to 30 minutes for the person to take their break or meal. If you are trained to cashier, you are constantly being called to the front to help make the line smaller and get customers out faster, Over all, I personally don't think the job is worth minimum wage because it is over whelming, but its not impossible. The manager of the store was nice, at times she would buy us lunch if we stayed late to get the job done. The stock room manager... well I'm not sure how she was hired because she didn't know anything to begin with. The co workers were over all nice, humble, but their were some who thought there was an I in team.
