Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brampton – February 19, 2014
Greet customers, clean and maintain the front of the store, and providing excellent customer service. That's pretty much the day to day responsibilities. It's a great part-time place to work, but I wouldn't do it full-time the hours aren't reliable.

Pros: staff celebrations for good causes, christmastime, promotions, lots of comraderie that made for good working envoirnment
Cons: there were no major complaints to make. most problems were minor and could be fixed .
A typical day at work involved a lot of team effort making sure everything got done on time. It always did and there was satisfaction in seeing a neat and fully stocked store. The management was always ready to give a hand where needed and were very fair in their dealings with the employees. My co-workers and I generally got along fine and worked together – more... well. The hardest part of the job for me was helping to move heavy loads of clothes when I worked on the sales floor and when I was on cash, heavy objects caused me some problems. For me, helping the customer and making them happy was the most enjoyable part of the job, whether I was working cash, sales floor or the fitting room. – less

Learned working with cash and completing orders, inventory, sending and receiving stock and repairs for customers and dealing with companies for warranties and repairs. Co-workers were great to – more... work with and enjoyed our time together. Hardest part of the job would have been any possible heavy lifting and dealing with some irate customers in which I always acted professionally and performed to the best of my ability.
