Pros: free lunches, good hours, nice co-workers
Cons: if you were scheduled until 10:00pm you'd sometimes stay till 12:00am, they said they would keep you after christmas season was done but they didn't, add-on sales expectations were too high
A typical day at work would be having a staff-meeting before we opened the doors. The manager on duty at that time would tell us all (if you were working evenings) what places we would be piecing (bringing the merch. to the front of the shelves/cleaning the floors) for example, someone would be piecing girls, someone would be piecing boys, etc., then – more... if we were working days or evenings, he'd tell us what cash register we'd be working on, and then he'd tell us to try and meet the goal for the add on sales, and then we'd go to work.
If you weren't on cash register 1 or 2, you'd immediately take a cart full of returned merchandise and find where each item goes (unless the packaging was damaged). Then for the rest of your shift you'd find misplaced merchandise and bring it back to its correct spot, help customers, and sometimes you were called to cash if the lines were long.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers, I met a lot of nice people there and it was sad to leave. Also, the managers bought pizza and pop for us so that was cool.
Hardest part of the job was the add-on sales. If you weren't meeting the expectation they'd yell at you.
Most of the co-workers were very friendly, but there were a few who would get annoyed if you asked them a question. – less
