I am a team player, I forever look forward to have a great team to face the day at work with and doing what is required from the team and making sure that we value our customers by making sure that they get what they deserve which is meeting their needs.

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

The rumors around the retailers future has an overall negative effect on the staff moral. I enjoyed the on the job learning. The implementation of the Tipping Point project in general was a great learning in the importance of product lay out and merchandising in a retail environment. Monthly conferences were helpful in understanding chain strategies and your role. I was part of the optimization project and this enabled me to introduce optimized strategies in the cosmetic and jewelry departments for my division. My Jewelry back office strategy was later introduced to the entire chain and is currently used in all stores.

Daily cash ups I stressed if I should notice that my cash up doesn't but most of the time I balanced,I enjoyed working with customers and explaining everything they didn't understand,I enjoyed selling them services like funeral covers,account protection plan,etc,I have very good convincing skills,the hardest part was when they didn't put me on the schedule for the whole week as they sometimes will because I was a casual teller,the it was a bit hard on me because then the salary will be too little,but other than that I enjoyed working with my colleagues,I loved that we prayed every morning before work and afternoon when we knock off,the management was always helpful and considerate
Pros
Good management
Cons
Long hours
