Your typical day includes sign and prices changes, sales, customer service and cleaning. Every new season has a fashion day where employees either choose or have outfits chosen to showcase the new line where customers are able to sit down and be taken through the line with open question and answer period.

I found it unsatisfying to work here because it was very mundane and monotonous.
Pros
half price clothing
Cons
evening shifts seem long as there are fewer clientelle

Northern Reflections is very accomodating for work schedules. They are understanding that people have lives outside of work.

Customers are usually friendly.


The most enjoyable part of the job was when a customer found the perfect outfit. The customer left the store pleased.

A typical day at work would include prepping the store for the newest fashion stock, really getting to understand what the customers like and their preferred dress, and lots and lots of teamwork! Working at Northern Reflections, I have learnt a lot about productivity, organization and balancing multiple tasks in a very fast paced environment. We try our best to service our customers above and beyond most stores all the while keeping the store in top condition and working a cash register and multiple fitting rooms.

My co-workers are wonderful. Everyone gets along and we keep one another on track with our duties, stopping to aid another when needed. We give credit where credit is due when it comes to ringing up a customer despite being paid by the hour, not paid by commission and we've never encountered a problem in the store with one another- we're all relatively flexible when deciding things/tasks.


I believe the most difficult part of my job personally is making sure everything is 100% organized. I get really into the customers, the register and the fitting rooms that it's sometimes difficult to step away and get things like folding up a table to store standards done quickly. Fourtunately, having worked there for quite a few months I've become much better than I used to at keeping things looking in good condition and it's really helped my organization in the long run, extending to home, hobby and social activities.


The most enjoyable part of the job would be dealing with the customers. We get a wide range of people in our store, a variety of personalities to interact with
