tiring but fun with the right people

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
if you are new, it can be challenging and fast-paced. when it was my first day there, i started with learning about the place and learning how to use the point of sales system and serving customers right away. it was definitely overwhelming for me as i am an introvert and as it was around lunch hour, it was getting crowded. it was definitely hard for me to get adjusted to the new environment but as weeks go by, i am more familiar to the store and has clicked with the people i worked with. even though they are my manager and supervisor, they still treat me like normal friend or even like their ‘daughter’ and that’s something i appreciate a lot as i don’t feel any hierarchy culture being put on in this place.

Pros

small store, less customer more chill

Cons

long hours, rotating shifts

Productive and fun workplace

Stock up shelves, clear inventory (year end), expiry checks, ordering new items and promote store events. Everyone there was really friendly and guided me along tremendously for my first week.

Too much stocks,promotion change and very slow progressions apportunity due to changed of managements/transfer

Too much stocks with low manpower. Tiring and changed of promo cycle happens too frequently. Difficult to get AL due to lack of manpower. Always got to stay late n hardly gets OT.

Too much stocks w too little manpower.

Its fun working environment, work w awesome friends but dislike the inter store transfer which happened to me a few times. ( slows down the opportunity of promotion) Also,i have to blend myself in that 'new' store ambience n new people. Not easy.
