On a typical day, I would promote my products to customers while competitors try to promote as well. I learned that I need to stand up for myself regardless of the situation. The management was amazing and was willing to assist where they could. The workplace culture was vast as I was working within a company and not the actual Verimark store. Challenges experienced included working on commission base, which was difficult due to competitors which had slightly lower prices. The most enjoyable parts included talking to customers which involved having to persuade them to buy the products.

You are placed in a store and what you do is sell and upsell your promotional product
The culture is bubbly and busy,you have to think on your feet and always think outside the box

This is a direct selling approach, so whatever you do make sure to be creative at all times

a typical day at work is normally quiet during the week because the workplace is a retail job, not very busy though always do our best to approach customers and make sales. I've learned to approach and communicate with the customers at all times. The management was good always made sure everything is up to date and always make sure we reach the target. The workplace culture is uniform addressed by the compony, the hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers, and the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know more about sales, bettering your selling skills, communicating and interacting wit different type of people(customers).

Good for students in my opinion. If you do end up permanent then it does pay quiet well. Job security aint the best as you arent guaranteed to be working every week/weekend
Cons
Long hours

My daily tasks were to deal with stock delivery in stores.
I learnt how to communicate effectively and how to prioritize accordingly.

The management was helpful and created a learning environment.

I enjoyed the year end functions where everybody had the opportunity to interact and enjoy themselves.

Verimark has changed me as a person for the better. The people you work with in store level as well as head office are very supportive and encouraging. Salary. . Well you make your own salary and if you good in what you do then there's no reason why you can't make that big pay check

A typical day at work is that we sign in and go to our respective work stations depending on the category one has been placed in. We attract customers to come see the products on display and persuade them in buying the products. I have learned alot of people's skills and team building. The most challenging part of the job is dealing with difficult customers. The most enjoyable part is my fellow collegues that make working for verimark worth while
