Team member

June 2017 • Sterling, VA

What I liked

I loved the people I work with and I enjoy getting to interact with customers. I’m a part of the retail department so I get to help customers find clothing and sometimes makeup. I get to make a personal connection with them by helping them find what they need.

What I wish was different

I wish that my team and I would’ve had some more chances to really work as a team in certain duties.

Advice

I would say take it one day at a time. One day you could have a great shift and then another day a customer could rub you the wrong way. You can’t let that one bad day effect your attitude towards your job because most of the time its so much fun.

Shipping and Receiving Clerk

October 2018 • Cuyahoga Falls, OH

What I liked

I like the pace of the job. I also am interacting with a variety of individuals which to me is extremely beneficial to what my degree is.

What I wish was different

Possibly leadership. The management is not as setup as they should be. They spend more time in the office rather than contributing to a team effort.

Advice

If you are looking to sort of take on your own leadership role and have independence in a job this is a good fit because you are pretty much on your own to complete what you are given task wise.

What I liked

Scheduling is flexible, the team leads are great.

What I wish was different

I wish that management had worked harder to make it a positive work environment, sometimes the leads are so stressed that it ends up being a negative environment.

Advice

If you show up and do your work and are kind and helpful to guests, this is not a difficult job.
