I expected much more from Senior management, very disappointed in working for a Christian company.
Customers was wonderful.

difficult staff

Senior management did not ensure that when recruiting new management for a store that the individuals matched each other.

hardest part of the job.....doing admin and being on the floor as requested.

Most enjoyable....time with customers

No support from the snr support manager or brand manager that oversee stores towards the store manager. They are never positive and it is overflowing to the staff. CEO used to be active in retail stores, not any longer. Working conditions is bad, no consistency. Policy and procedures is bend to suit snr management. The quality of product is good and working with the customers is fulfilling.

Working for the company on a normal day would include assisting customers an assisting with sale.I have trained as a cashier and learned how to receive stock as well as pricing and merchandising. The work culture is wonderful and everyone gets along with each other well. the staff are well trained in customer service and the store is well managed. Personally , the best part of working here would be interacting with the customers and being of assistance to them and the most difficult part would be having to deal with difficult customers. But generally working for the company is amazing
Pros
staff discount on items in the store
Cons
unexpected long hours

A typical day at work consisted of assisting customers with their queries, giving product information and organizing products in a systematic way.
I learnt plenty about customer service and working with others. The store was a Christian book/ gift shop and so I had to represent the stores values in the way that I conversed with customers and treated them.

I cannot really say there was anything hard about the job, it was pretty straight-forward and easy.

I enjoyed interacting with the customers and being with my colleagues as they were nice people.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Unreasonably low pay

It's a very professional setting, the staff is friendly the management, not so much. The supervisors, it depends. It is a good start for those who are starting out.

Get familiar with the products and services, see if growing in it is possible for you, and you decide.
Pros
Get to read free books, discounted products for you.
Cons
One off day per week, not Sundays at most

Very long hours and financially not rewarding! If it wasn't for the people that I worked with I would've hated my job and some customers made it worth while.
