Fantastic transitory occupation
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Liverpool, ENG – 22 April 2014
While searching for a desirable career path, my relocation to Liverpool led to to work for Dr Martens, a hugely reputable brand that treat their staff with huge respect. I have learned the values of both customer relationships and the need for pragmatism due to the diversity of the clientele I encounter on a daily basis.
The hardest part of the job is, unfortunately, the lack of hours. This makes it extremely difficult to continue in a position that is becoming less and less financially viable as the months roll on. I also feel that retail, whilst having helped me learn a huge amount about the working environment, does not allow me to project my greatest talents - my creativity, innovation and willingness to progress - to their full potential.
Fantastic work ethic - company care hugely about the staff's satisfaction and well-being.
Not enough hours; no desire to continue in retail as a long term career
