A great place to work and make friends
I really enjoyed this job, I had worked there for a decent amount of time so I became quite established. This led me to make connections with many of the regular customers, I knew a lot about the product so I could be informative to customers and newer employees. My manager gradually ended up giving me more responsibility with store closing and training and receiving shipments, etc. The hours were very flexible and with my seniority my manager was incredible accommodating if I needed to change my schedule, I was also very frequently asked to cover for other employees and often accepted, although I did have complete opportunity to say no. There was some turnover with the seasonal employees (which I started out as) but most of us stuck around and we became friends. We had team incentives and the managers often pulled them out of their own pockets. Holidays were hard work but we functioned exceptionally well as a team. I felt respected and valued as an employee which I value a lot, no matter where I work.
Always snacks in break room, work friends
