Fun, welcoming and energetic environment
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire – 17 October 2017
A typical day at work was coming into the store, registering your name down and being assigned a different part of the store every day to work. Meeting different people allowed me to understand the nature of the store, along with the expectations of both the company and the customers.
I learned how much work is put into the store to attract customer attention, and to maintain the high-end, premium feel to the store overall.
The management was very encouraging and supportive throughout my work experience and always ensured I was confident in understanding the jobs I was given and helped me complete them to the best of my ability.
The hardest part of the job was working out the percentages for sales, but once I had gotten the hang of it, I gradually improved in performance.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working in order and collect, as I successfully used the tills, had the chance to speak to the customers, improving customer care skills, and worked on a team with other employees to allow the job to be done efficiently.
