Not a company for everbody to work in

My typical work day is doing store visit to update staff about layouts,promotions,new structure and display layouts.I have a good understanding with my colleagues and we work well together.I have learned that not everything is black and white and that understanding people is very important to have a good work flow,and a good understanding of the systems you need to work with.I enjoy working with the people in the stores,training and upskilling them.The most challenging is getting to all the stores in a short space of time.Making sure everybody understand their role they plan in the company and to get everybody to work towards one goal

Pros: You have freedom to work as you see fit and to implement your new ideas
Cons: The owner is not always understanding and like to het rid of people he does not like

Hardworking

Always pushing to do better than the previous day & working together as a team to achieve a common goal. I enjoyed helping out my co-workers and having a good relationship with co-workers helps you to know the strength of the individuals in your team, knowing who to go to when you need assistance. I've learned that being close as a team helps you to achieve good results. I enjoy being useful, helping out my co-workers and doing the best that I can and pushing myself to achieve more on daily basis.

Pros: Opportunity to come up with ideas that will have a positive impact on the company
Cons: Being flexible

Excellent leadership

Enjoyed working as a team to make more opportunities to improve our performance Dealing with with most difficult customers that they just want to buy without having their account cards Making my work place like my home The most enjoyable is when they send us to learn some work shop and meet some other staff from other branches My colleague they like my family cause plan things together like the occassions Most challenging thing when you have to be in time at work and you so must still take kids to school and the store needs to open in time.

Pros: Go to workshop so that we learn to get promotions
Cons: Go extra miles to add more custome service
