Was an overall good experience.
Co-workers were excellent working with, it was a bit stressful and busy but enjoyed every bit of it. The best part of this job was meeting different people and interacting with them.

Edgars customer in anger
There was a customer who was looking for a shoe size and he could not find any on the shoe shelves, during that time I was supposed to be in the department , due to sending of the other employees for lunch break. I was told by my manager its urgent to return to the stock room/dispatch to verify our stock for our shoe department, when I got to the department the customer raised his anger voice at me and I remained calm and kept on apologising to him and when my manager arrived I told him about the situation, and my manager also apologised on his behalf and awarded him on a 30% discount on any shoes within the department.
The customer thereafter became much better off , and I assisted him.
Pros
Extra lunch breaks
Cons
Late for work sometimes

Productive and fun workplace
Everyday was fun, the management ws so cool we even shared jokes with the bosses, the co-wokers made me feel like home. The hardet part of the job was to deal with a rude customer. Most enjoyable part of the job was the reward day when we did well in our departments.
Pros
early lunches and enough tea times
Cons
long hours and enough day offs

Great work place
Staff was very friendly.
Managers great people to work for.

Supervisors very motivational and friendly.

Dealing with hard customers was the hardest for me, with all the motivations and lessons by managers and supervisors made it easy everyday.

Theme days were my favourite part.

I learned how to deal with different customers.
Pros
free lunches from our Managers.
Cons
long hours

pleasing the customer
my typical day a work comprised of standing behind the till ringing merchandise purchased by the customer while making sure they get the best buying experiences from my services. I sold and made store targets by opening up accounts, replenishing items. to work with people one has to be friendly at all times. management was organised and they maintained a generally work based relationship with their employees (they kept everything professional)
Pros
target competitions
Cons
standing through out the day

An average workplace
The company has a lot of values about being positive and how to increase productivity but they do not instill it in themselves. It should start by management being role models for their staff but instead managers throw their weight around. Also departments should be maintained and things should not be put into place only when their is a visit from higher management.

Productive and funny
A typical day at work was when I was running the department all alone,I had to be a sales specialist,get the phones for customers,do daily Administration,and alSo process transactions for every costomer.All I did was using my skills which is flexible,quick thinker ,interpersonal skills.the day went very well and smooth.

I have learned a lot e g customer service,how to work with people.Also gained lot of expirience,now I'm confident and competent to contribute to any company.


Management EDGARS. They so helpful and caring ,they open to everyone to tlk if there's a problem.


Team work is what I like about my co-workers,very helpful and caring .


The hardest part of the job is when customers bringing back a cellular telling you that he /she can't operate the handset.


I enjoy work when we making target,having enough stock to sell,
