Payless does not ask the world of you, just that you keep the store clean and provide friendly customer service - and know how to do basic arithmetic when producing change.

Like a lot of retail environments you need to be able to handle difficult customers with a professional demeanor and try to balance between sales and service.

My particular - more ... store had a toxic work culture where the manager would gossip about other employees without any invitation. Her opinion was public, and it meant that all of us felt like we were entitled to gossip about each other. It made the job very unpleasant ... - less
ProsSimple job without much pressure and easy to maintain a life balance.
ConsMinimum wage, standard retail challenges
