A typical day at work began with a check of the personal sales targets and other tasks set out for the day. Each employee had a target specific to them for $ amount; multiple sales %; apparel %; accessories %; insoles (1 for every $500); and, socks and shoe care amounts, as well as tasks including stock replenishment for when there were no customers to be served. I learned many things in this position; given that I was a senior member of staff, I was responsible for ensuring these targets were reached in the absence of Store or Assistant Managers and therefore learned how to lead a team of associates and deal with all types of personalities and work ethics.

Busy and very demanding depending on your position and the level of staff you work with. Rewarding in terms of the experience you gain, not a typical retail job.

i enjoy the staff and the customers, they bring life to the shop and it is a good place to work if you are in collage, i wouldn't recommend it for someone who needs full time hours only managers get that. its more suitable for the young adults trying to get there foot in the door. if you put the work in they will notice you and progress you eventually
Pros
none
Cons
contract
