Sales associate

November 2018 • Glendale, AZ

What I liked

The business of it all. I like to keep moving at my jobs, it keeps me occupied and my mind off the time.

What I wish was different

The management went through a change right before holiday so that put a lot of stress on the rest of the team.

Advice

Take everything in stride. Things are going to go as well as they’re going to go. You can prepare to the best of your ability but when the time comes, things will happen the way they’re supposed to.

Key Holder

October 2019 • Akron, OH

What I liked

I like how I’m able to engage with many different people every day , on top of that , most of the people who I work with are students who attend the University of Akron. From talking to them I was able to find out more information to help out with my major and more.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have got a job within my field to help me use my current skills and knowledge to help me in my near future.

Advice

I would say this has been one of the best experiences yet. I had a mock interview at the career center as well which is really going to help me when preparing for the real one. I don’t think many people are aware of these services so I do try to tell as many people as I can.

Sales Associate

June - August 2019 • Alexandria, LA

What I liked

It always smelled nice inside. Most of the customers were friendly and kind. I got to work with a brand and company I like and support.

What I wish was different

Often times, my schedule was not posted due to technical difficulties on my manager's side. I wish the schedule set up/process was more clearly defined for both me and my manager. I also believe I was only hired to make up for certain busy times in the summer. I was scheduled less and less as the summer progressed.

Advice

Be prepared to restock shelves at any time. Always be aware of your surroundings in case of theft. Communicate with your manager often. Know that people occasionally have bad days, and may not be in the best mood; It's not your fault.

I loved working for a larger company that focused on intern development! As well, I enjoyed the field itself, and think anybody who is creative but also statistical would like Merchandise Planning
