I enjoyed working at the shop as an assistant as it was my first time in my life.
The first day I was very shy and nervous, however, my manager was amazing she helped me to understand everything steps by step.
She helped me to learn how to organize items over the shelf, keep thing upside and keep records of recipients in the secure place so it can be used to pass on to the finance department.
I felt respected and valued as I get to learn English as it's not my first language. It helped me to build my confidence in communications and interacting skills.
I made friends from all kinds of different background such as South African ladies who were volunteers.
I liked the fact that diversity was shining like a sky of beautiful stars.
One of the hardest parts was to deal with customers who don't follow the rules of the shop and start arguing over the till that was very horrible to see that some people are extremely bad in their behaviors and to deal with them I was struggling as I was new that made me feel upset.
Later on, I realize that not everyone is the same I just got used to and ignored those who miss behaved. Carrie on my duties to support customers in buying and selling.
Most enjoyable part of the job was to sort out display area for instance weekly it was my duty to make front area looking attractive and eye-catching. To make it look beautiful I used to decorate with bright clothes and brick and brack.
Overall, I learned excellent teamwork, communication and organizing skills.
flexibility in working hours and great place to enjoy diversity.
dealing with rude people and sorting out smelly clothes.
