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. I then moved onto a marketing portfolio for growth and learning experiences within a different field. Thoroughly enjoying working within my new team - lots of growth potential

Pros: Great opportunity for promotion
Cons: Not too much structure

It was a good learning curve I have learnt a lot.

A typical day get to work early and open a till because we could work as only three worker a day. Then administration should be done on daily basis especially inventory and SFR because you get to see if everything balances, and hazard counts are done everyday as well to check if high risk is balancing and the negative stock . We work well as colleagues and we were like family and we treated out customer with respect and pride and smile all the way so they feel appreciated.I enjoyed making customers happy even though not everyone will be happy and when we make budget the sales grow and the percentage. The challenge would be the pressure if budget is not meet and to prevent stockloss

Pros: opportunities are there even if you have to apply for them and work hard to be recognized
Cons: working hours were normal and anything more would be overtime

Learning Curve

I received a glimpse of what corporate is all about and in the process became aware of all the things I do not want in a career. There are not enough growth opportunities and incentive for hard work is patronizing.

Pros: Relaxed culture. Salary benefits
Cons: No growth opportunity. Dismal renumeration
