Great bosses, easy work.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 6, 2014
Pros: getting the latest celeb gossip
Cons: few hours
When on the job, you clean up shelves, replace old stock with new, and making sure the costumer gets help while you are in the store. This job requires organizational skills, to be able to clean up, and follow plans. Management was exceptional, always able to answer questions, and help if there is a lot of stock to put out. The hardest part of the job was cleaning up after costumers, because lets be honest they are messy.
