Store Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 September 2014
Open registers and tidy merchandise on the sales floor. Maintain sales floor, assist customers with sizes and special orders. Monitor daily stock shipments and ensure all shelves are organized to make receiving as easy as possible. Close registers and ensure all product sold is re-filled on the sales floor.
I learned the importance of product placement and how to run a sales team. My manager helped me advance my career and gave me the knowledge to ensure I kept growing. My co-workers were hard working and dedicated. The management team made this possible by leading by example and meeting their own individual sales targets.
The most difficult part of this job was the long holiday hours. However, the experience taken away from the company is invaluable. It taught me a lot of the tools I utilize today, such as how to be a manager, time management skills, and sales techniques.

Sales associate (Former Employee) – Square One – 21 June 2014
Working there is like working at a typical retail job. There are sales goals that need to be met, and store appearance needs to be maintained and updated. I learned a lot of retail knowledge and processes from my time there; management was exceptional at the local level, but management started to be a little unreasonable with changes the further up it went. Co-worker relations were great, and everyone worked well as a team; the hardest part of the job were problematic clients who did not abide by store policies.
