Excellent learning curve

I was working in a bank which was a different environment to from retail. I have learnt to put myself in a customers shoes and understand their frustrations. Always have a smile on my face. We do get irritated with each other as co-workers but I think am the only one who get up there and still work on my best of ability. I enjoy interacting with every genre of people and making them feel as VVIP.

Pros: gaining work expirience
Cons: peak relief worker

Great experience within marketing

Enjoyed learning about the fashion retail environment, within the trends department for a year - even though we had experienced 2 restructures for the year.
