I used to meet different customers some were friendly and some were not but i have learned how approach them accordingly and always be friendly. My co-workers were friendly and also the management staff. my hardest part was when dealing with an angry customer but i always managed to make them happy at the end. my enjoyable part of the job was seeing a happy and certisfied customer with my services.
Pros

Open the store in the mornings, I then sign off all admin and from there have a managers meeting and then a staff meeting. After opening to the public I do a floor walk and move products to sell and maintain set standards that makes the departments more presentable all day. In the afternoon I do admin checks and focus on turnover. Before close of day we walk the floor to make sure that the store is ready for trading the next day. I lock at night with my managment team. Some of the hardest areas is exceeding customer expectations which we strive to do on a daily basis. I have a great Team and we work well togther. We are cheerfull team but also a hard working one. I learned that you are only as good as your last visit and your team. You wont succeed in your career by yourself but growth depends on yourself. Learning to interact with people and the bussines structure is the most important part of any bussines as you rely on their return bussines.
Pros
Car Allowance, Mediacl Aid, Pension
Cons
Long hours

Early mnorning we use to have a quizz relating to sports in general other days we excersize, the hard part was when we receive lots of stock in a day and the requirement was that all the styock must be captured,marked and sent to the floor we use to leave late on those days but that has taught me to work even more harder and sometimes taking only 10 minutes lunch. on wednesday we use to play action cricket after work as part of relaxation

My typical day at work would be when theres less work to do and the time movement is on a go slow therefore my day will be longer than usual,I have learned time management,working smart,looking presentable,boosted my confident,to always keep myself busy because I will never know who is watching me and most importantly never bring my personal problems at work as it can affect my performance.Management is excellent,I have learned that I should have a good working relationship and definately know my boundries and that implies to my co-workers too.The hardest part would be my weakness as sometimes I do less work with less effort and I enjoy my job when theres a sale on or when there is plenty of work to do,therefore I am too focused and thats my full performance.
Pros
Team player
Cons
Working very long hours

Working for Sportsman's really taught me so much about retail bussines,and to be part of management taught me a lot of tricks on how to get the staff motivated and perform to the best of their ability.- I have learned that staff respect what you inspect-when you give an objective is always best to follow up-The hardest part of my job will be when am doing the provision,which is basically taking the total turnover for the whole year and subtracting all the expenses that the company has spend interms of salaries, equipment hired,maintaining the store ,and tell how much profit we made.-What I enjoy the most is when we do the events,eg valentine's race we get to participate and have fun
