Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 January 2017
A typical day for me was arriving at work and setting up my booth for the day and awaiting for potential buyers. I also learned alot about customers where abouts. Example would be where they were from and what they liked about our city and how they were enjoying our stampede, some of which who had never been to our stampede before. The hardest part of my job was getting customers interested in our products, which were boots, pack backs, t-shirts, wallets, and gun holsters. Those one's were the hardest to sell lol.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the staff that i was working with. They really made me feel like i was a somebody and to me that is important, it made me want to be there everyday and i felt good about myself. I learned about different types of sales pitches, what to say and when to say it properly, and i also learned to have confidence in myself as well as the product i was selling.
I got a free belt from them for my services.
The stampede only lasted 10 days, i wish it was longer.

Calgary Stampede is a non-profit organization that has very high standards which allow all to work freely.
Day to day operations has a multitude of aspects which is heavily public directed. Work day is a busy one dealing with many organizations, companies an internal departments.
Management is varied from very good to at times overbearing. There is a need for all to be very open, direct an to the point as this organization benifits the citizens of Calgary.
Most enjoyable part of this organization is the upfront dealings with the public. The Exhibition & Stampede allows all to showcase thier particular skill with the public bringing credit to all that work here.
some discounts at various locations, flex time to deal with day to day living.
periods of long work to ensure the organization is up front
