Fun and hard-working environment
Sales assistant/Cashier (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull – 22 May 2018
A typical day at Peacocks would include dealing with customers requests, complaints and sales at the checkout as well as handling and distributing stock around the shop, and tidying/cleaning at the end of the working day.
At Peacocks, I learnt the fundamentals of working in a retail environment and gained vital experience in the field. I learned how to deal with issues to do with the tills and with complaints customers would come into the shop with that I wouldn't have had a clue about before. I also developed my customer service skills to an excellent level.
The management at Peacocks were superb and I never had an issue with them. They always treat staff and customers with the upmost respect and I would happily work with them again in the future.
The most enjoyable part of the job was serving customers. I found it a pleasure to deal with customers everyday and interact and deal with their requests and complaints, as I love working with people.
The hardest part of the job was where the shop was really busy and there were many more duties to deal with, which sometimes meant working in high pressure situations.
Overall, Peacocks is the job that I stayed in throughout college until I went off to university and I thoroughly enjoyed working in a retail environment and gained some vital experience for my future working life.
Working in the retail environment
Long hours, sometimes very busy and a lot of pressure
