SALES ASSOCIATE/KEY HOLDER, St. John's, NL - 29 August 2015
Working at Samuel & Co was very enjoyable. We worked well as a team, supporting each other's sales despite having individual sales goals. This was my first retail job and I'm grateful to have learned how to work in a high-end clothing store where the interaction between staff and clients was treated as an important facet. Making sure the customer was pleased with and would continue to be pleased with their purchase was as important as making a sale. The hardest part of the job was when the customer had something very specific in mind, but it wasn't available in their size. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the diversity of customers and getting to know them well enough to be able to phone them when something "perfect" for them came into the store.
