Producutive Workplace
I am always punctual so i arrive at work 15-20 minutes before my shift . I have learnt a vast array of skills such a communication,organisation,teamwork,independent,customer service and stockroom. I am known in work as both a hard worker and a team player . The most enjoyable part of my job is learning new skills and hitting our sales target both monthly and annually.

Fun for a while
Was as a fun place to work in the beginning, but as management changed, more rules and regulations were added, which made work life less and less enjoyable.

Helpful and friendly environment.
A typical day at work involved replenishing and organising stock, serving customers their goods, handling cash transactions with customers and answering queries and questions customers had. Management were helpful and friendly, as were my team of co-workers. The hardest part was the physical labour which took its toll after a long shift, while the most enjoyable part was interacting with co-workers in a friendly environment.

Sometimes fun , sometimes very demanding
I would either be on tills all day or helping customers on the shop floor I learned how to cope with high pressure retail environments The store manager could be harsh at times but he's a good guy There were a lot of interesting people from all over the world the hardest part of the job was the tills because the computers dont use barcode readers , so you would have to manually input a product code one digit at a time every time The most enjoyable part was getting to know the people i worked with
Prosstaff discount

argos
a typical day at work would be stock room work and customer service work. I learned great communication skills and how to deal with impatient customers. the management where very demanding but always looked after us if we needed help. my co-workers where great to work with and I had a great relationship with them. The hardest part of the job where trying to set your targets on customer services but I would always do my best to do so. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was in the stock room because you where always on your feet keeping busy
