Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – West Kelowna, BC – 27 September 2017
I loved working at Zellers, you were treated like family. There was always something to be done and they always gave you the opportunity and time to learn new departments of the store. They were accommodating while I was in school hour wise, but they were also always willing to give more shifts if ever wanted.
fair place to work,staff was great. They took time to help when line-ups got long, helped to cover breaks and made sure you had what you needed. Management your there when you had problem customer's. for the most part people were happy with the customer service that they received.
Fashion Specialist and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 September 2017
Start the day off with a 5 minute morning meeting and then to your departments. Clean up any mess left from the previous day and work on fashion planograms to ensure that the departments are setup to the company standards. Ensure that all wall and table displays are full and appealing to the eye to encourage customers to buy. Restock any empty shelves and answer customer or cashier questions. Be additional cash associate and help cashiers get change when needed. Train new associates and put out new product on arrival.
I learned how you vcan be thrown into a project but flourish when given the chance. The management changed quite often and some managers were better than others. the best managers were those that helped out on the floor and answered any questions that staff or customers had.
The workplace was busy and fun. Most of the staff got along well and had a great time together. There was a bit of a high school feel because of the cliques that formed.
The hardest part of the job was not having the full support of the supervisors. I would often have to train new supervisors, managers, and staff on the working of the fashion departments. This was because most of the time I had more experience in the area then they did. The most enjoyable part was the people that I worked with who were very fun.
