it was kind of like christmas...again

Sunday, March 1, 2009

Well, the store is a HUGE success. Some people are even driving from an hour away. Yesterday we were so busy I felt like I was working the Saturday before Christmas. I feel the karma behind this, since I didn't work retail this past holiday season. I am kind of torn about the work environment though. I like the freedom I have to just walk around the store, not having any tasks to complete and just help the customers. But I don't like the behind the scenes stuff. For example, they posted next weeks schedule and I only had 18 hours (with full availability) while others had 33-35 hours. UGH! So I just asked the general manager, because I was confused about it, and he said he didn't make the schedule. Well, he obviously talked to the supervisor who made it, because yesterday he came up to me and asked if I wanted more hours (I said yes) and what my availability was. So now I at least have 24 hours next week.

On Friday, they asked me if I wanted to be a bridal consultant. I was so excited because that's what I really wanted to do! So I basically have to be an expert on all the products,which won't be hard for me :). And then I get to sit down with engaged couple and help them out with the whole registry process. I can't wait for my training to start!

OK, enough about work...sorry if it was too boring.

I'm glad you survived the first weekend. I'm happy that you get to do the Bridal registry. I'll bet you will be teaching the trainer some new things. Hopefully your hours will coincide with Mike's and you won't be working opposite each other.
