There is no typical day in retail however- standard procedure of interacting with customers. Talking, selling and being an openly friendly person, with a nice smile greeting you. General tasks such as hovering, mopping, dusting and re-arranging/changing displays. General till interactions- sale/exchange/gift cards/returns etc. Opening open/Locking up. Cash up.
A great amount of knowledge re: leather/shoes/fashion trends/buzz words/ establishing customer's needs/ ensuring a pleasant personality at all times regardless.
Fantastic co-workers and a great sense of team work and community. All working towards same goals, everyone trying to help each other. Noted not all the time however this was dealt with effectively and efficiently.
Hardest part of day- sometimes customers leaving the product to 'think about it'. Thankfully lots of customers return after ensuring the item is the right colour/correct height etc.
Most enjoyable part- everything , fantastic good quality products to sell( this belief makes one's job so much easier). Location, co-workers, customers. Creating a good welcoming environment, with happy music and smiling faces.
