Retail Associate

January 2019 • Mesa, AZ

What I wish was different

I wish that the shifts were a little more even, but I also understand this is a retail job and the managers have to work around everyone's availability.

One piece of advice is to make sure you have good shoes so that your feet don't hurt at the end of the day.

Sales Associate

I like being able to read people's needs and provide them with what they came looking for, or what they didn't know they needed.

What I wish was different

Advice

People are business. If you aren't a people person, business will be tough. Dealing with customers shows you all sorts of people and I believe working on the front lines of a business like that is extremely crucial in understanding different people and different ways to work with them.

Sales Representative

August 2018 • Mesa, AZ

What I liked

Great work environment with people who you'll become good friends with.

What I wish was different

There's not much room to move up as far as raises go, so if you're in it for the money, not the best place to go. But as a job to get you by, that won't be too hard, and have some fun people to get to know, then go for it.

Advice

Easy job, just do what you're told, be friendly, and have fun with it and your co-workers.
