Sales assistant (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 9. April 2019
The job was very sale focused and it felt a lot of the time we were pressured into forcing customers to buy things. We had very limited staff and very rarely ever left in time at the end of the night. Managers would pressure us to stay behind later and would show very little presence in the shopfloor. I was only part time there and hated every second of it.
Long hours forcing sales and pressuring customers to buy things.
Jack & Jones Concession, Debenhams Basingstoke - Customer Assistant (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Basingstoke – 6. Oktober 2019
A typical day at Jack and Jones concession, your task is to ensure that the shop floor is presented and dressed well, as well as being a helpful and friendly figure to the general public who may come in and look around.
Working for Jack and Jones taught me more about their company and how their clothes were made (I always found that interesting) and boosted my social skills which made me more confident to talk to people and communicate better.
The workplace environment I was in was fun and really positive so I would always be leaving work in a good mood which I think is important when you are working somewhere.
I'd say the only challenge of the job is keeping on top of dressing and presentation when it's busy although this can be resolved easily when it then quietens down.
