Fast Paced, Fun, and Challanging Work Environment.
Pros: learning new things, such as visual merchandizing.
Cons: not enough hours to distribute amongst staff
A typical day at work would include, Opening the store, distributing the product from the back room into the store for sale. Greeting customers, assisting customers with purchases, contacting other Urban Planet locations for product. Opening stock to be distributed throughout the store. Cleaning, and maintaining a NCO ( Neat, Clean and Organized) store.
I – more... learned quite a lot from working here, for example I was taught time management, leadership skills, organizational skills, Visual Merchandizing aspects (i.e colour blocking, store flips, wall reorganizing), how to be a team player and also be capable to work alone and delegate staff to assigned duties as well as myself when the store manager was not working.
My coworkers always made work enjoyable, they would be very welcoming, and helpful.
The hardest part of the job would have to be, the stock we would receive around holidays. There would be 80+ boxes to distribute and clear from the back room the same day.
The most enjoyable part of the job was going into work everyday, seeing the customers, helping them out with their purchases, bringing product out of the back room and distributing it throughout the store. I enjoyed the store flips, the wall organization, and the staff. – less
