A typical day at work is helping costumers find what they are looking for and also package products for them, cashing them out and making sure to meet daily goals and being able to do delivery. Along with other responsibilities that come with the job and completing daily tasks
Pros
great coworkers
Cons
not enough hours

It's not a bad job. Fast paced in the mall, just difficult trying to sell expensive chocolate. Customers can be a bit pretentious. Cramped workspace. The strawberries are great tho.
Pros
discount on chocolate

One thing that is important to note is that if you are looking to work for the experience, Godiva is the right place to be. In terms of the amount of work you do, the compensation is unjust. The amount of work you do not only as a salesperson but also as a stocker is valued way more higher than what is given to the employees. Commission is not given to employees, and neither are their incentives to sell.
Pros
Discounted chocolate, caring team members
Cons
Long hours, unfair compensation

Management at my particular location was little to none. People did as they pleased, with phones in the front, eating from the chocolate window, and even drinking coffee's or their tea's in front of customers. I worked there for a bit and quickly realized these flaws, and after being bullied into submission, I got fired. Godiva has great quality chocolate, wonderful flavors, and the managers when they're at their specific location are absolutely wonderful. The employees are not the same whatsoever.
Pros
Samples
Cons
Lack of discipline

Godiva was a very fun and challenging job. Hardest but most rewarding part of the job was to find and close corporate sales.

A typical day would begin at 9 when I would count the tills and prepare the store for opening at 9:30. Normally it would be quiet in the morning so I would dip strawberries and bananas and display them nicely in the front window. I loved working there. On breaks I got to check out sales in other stores around the mall. I quit in the summer of 2013 solely because I moved to Italy for my LDS mission.
