I've worked at strandbags for over a year and it is the worst company I have ever worked for. The work itself is fine but the company treats the stuff terribly. as a sales assistant, you have a sales target for the day, week, month and year. if you make that target you get nothing but if you are not maligning targets they threaten to cut your hours. You are not paid overtime if you have to work past the closing time for any reason. you have to arrive a minimum of 15 mins before opening to prefer the store but you are not paid for that time. You must also work alone for 4 or more hours in which you get no 15 min break and you can not go to the bathroom. You have a 40% stuff discount on full price items but no one ever uses it because strandbags often has 40% off sales.
Pros
Actual job is ok.
Cons
Low pay, no benefits, unhealthy competitive culture, not given appropriate breaks.

A typical day involves interacting with customers and making sales.
I learned about all of our products.

I do take part in managing the store and running it when the manager isn't there

My co-workers are hard working and i get along with them.

The hardest part is trying to make budget when the store isnt busy.

The most enjoyable part of my day is talking to the customers because i love people and getting to know everyone.
