great way to start and career in retail
Sales Adviser (Former Employee) – hamilton the base – 14 April 2015
the body shop was my first retail position i had been working my whole employment career within customer service and the day i looked into this position was the day i learnt to love retail and everything about it.
a norm day would be same as most retail store but being a store with great location in the Te awa we got a lot of foot traffic and even when it was slow there was always looking for fun and exciting ways to boost the teams targets and sales as well as helping new staff with product knowledge and training as well as making sure the store was all front facing products are fully stocked and clean as well
the hardest part of the job would be constantly training you are required to be fully aware of any product changes and everything about it which sometimes can include ingredients, price, color, benefits of the item, what its used for, who can use it, etc
most people hate Christmas but at the body shop i loved it so many people needing help finding the rite gift as well as needing gift wrapping its awesome Christmas is their biggest time of the year especially boxing day but if you look at it as to being a busy eventful day it can become exciting to someone who usually hates that time of year
not much of a life for the managers
