Every day is different in a retail environment
GM and Technology Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 June 2015
Everyday can be different as customers change. There is always something new as the semesters change, and the students also change which mean different requests to manage. I have definitely learned how to communicate better with students as the majority of our staff are university students and often don't know what to do. Orders need to be counted, product needs to be transferred and PO's need to be created. The most enjoyable part of the job is when analysis needs to be done on a category to look to ways to improve profitability or sales. The most difficult part of the job is usually in September when the sales are high and product comes in faster than we can find space for it.
Pros
No evenings or weekends except during September
Cons
Summer hours mean that you come in later but also have to stay later.
