the place is great to work in. Everyone was professional from the security guard to the Store manager, when you go to work you know that you gonna assist the store reach it's daily, weekly and monthly store targets. The enjoyable moments was meeting new customers as they always had their opinions about our products and prices, i'v gained a lot of experience for the time i was working there. I would like to take what i learned there and put it to good use.

Job work / Life balance a problem, i.e. 2 Days off in a month. Salary and benefits quite low, particularly at lower levels. Too much workload caused by among others too much paper administration. Job security, management and culture need some serious improvement.
Pros
Performance based incentive
Cons
Too much paperwork

A typical day at work would see me interact with many customers and selling approximately 15 phones on a quiet day and up to 35 or more on a busy day. Certain customers would be difficult to work with but I overcame this with my excellent interpersonal skills. Management was supportive and understanding. The most enjoyable part of the job was reaching the weekly and monthly targets.
Pros
Commission
Cons
Awkward hours

a typical day at work is servicing the clients and controlling, taking and pricing stock, solve all client queries, opening and closing of accounts and managing cash flow of your safe. Working most of my time in this job at the accounts department I have learned how to deal with complex account queries and how do solve those queries. I also learned how to prioritize and multi task because of the busy retail environment as well as the start of my customer service skills. My co-workers were fantastic given the fact that at the time I was one of the youngest of the all the staff and everyone was very protective over me and was always keen to help me where needed. The hardest part of the job was when your safe did not balance at the end of a busy day and after a long search for the difference it can not be located and all shortages were deducted from your salary every month. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the clients and having fun in the work place by making jokes.
Pros
Discount on products in store and serving clients
Cons
slow promotions in industry
