Very positive workplace with a great group of people.
Pros: great discount, learned a lot about skateboards, shoes, and accessories.
Cons: a little bit further from home. working in the mall you get a lot of wanderers.
Typical day at work would be working sales on the floor selling clothes, bags, jackets, shoes or skateboards. Communicating with customers was an occurrence with every shift.
I learned how to fully assemble a skateboard and how to organize the different clothing sections properly and efficiently. Communicating with customers was another large role which I learned and how to react in different scenarios.
The managers were awesome, all of them were very positive and motivating. If something needed to be done it was addressed in a mature positive manner. The district manager was a little bit more harsh and had a few problems, but the store managers were great.
Co-workers were amazing. One of the best groups of people I've worked with. All young people in their early 20's or late teens. Everyone always had a positive attitude and was willing to help each other out when needed. We were all really close so there was never a shift where you wouldn't want to address or speak with another employee.
Hardest part of the job was probably having to close and go around the entire store to make sure everything was perfectly folded at the end of the night. Also, the shoebox walls in the back room were also very large and crammed so when we needed to get a pair of shoes, sometimes it could be a little tricky.
The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely working with who I got to work with. Everyone was so funny and positive that it made every day at work a great time. We would never have a dull moment but everyone was also able to be very serious when the store was really busy, but – more... no one every got frustrated with each other so there was no arguing or yelling. – less
