A typical day at work would mean offering a high demand of customer service. Meeting and greeting customers was a major highlight. I learnt the appropriate measures of dealing with difficult customers and difficult situations which helped me a lot. The fellow co-workers were very friendly and helpful which made me feel right at home. I felt comfortable working in an environment where everyone was supportive and friendly. The hardest part of the job was having the odd one or two customers that were very disrespectful and rude but I retained my composure. The most enjoyable part of the job was the experience. I made new friends with the other co-workers and gained new skills that will definitely help with future jobs.
We would wait for the Warehouse to close before we could start our stock taking. We were given the task to count stock of a located area and move on to other locations once one was completed. This would go on till around 4 am the latest. The hardest part of the job would be keeping focused on the task as the night progresses.
Challenging but enjoyable work environment where system implimentation and inventory controls improved the stock accuracy / visibility of product to a network of company and independantly owned franchise stores. Passionate team of people to work with throughout the organisation striving to provide exemplary product offer and customer experiences. Found that diplomacy was always the easiest way to gain desired result although not necessarily the most efficient mode of achievement. The most challenging part of the role was not always being able to provide an acceptable range of products (restricting customer experience) due to supply chain issues beyond the scope of my role. The most memorable aspect of the job was challenging younger members of the staff regarding their engagement and seeing the incremental changes in attitude and output as long standing practices were adapted and changed.
