Although my title was "Receptionist," I took on a lot more responsibilities than one would think. Our department manager left shortly after I started, my responsibilities sky-rocketed to keep the salon afloat. Every day, I'd start out by looking at each stylist's revenue reports. I'd make sure they were on their own individual task as well as the salon's. My stylists always commented how I was able to make complicated commission systems understandable. I'd make daily reminders and goals for individual stylists. Most importantly, I managed the books. I set and managed appointments for up-to 14 stylists at once. This involved time management and making sure to follow through with reminding clients of their appointments. I kept up with the retail stock, I sold, restocked, and ordered inventory. I made commission on my retail sales, so I quickly channelled my inner salesman and rose to the top of my sales charts. I would also go through each service completed and document the history in order for stylists to look back at each individual client. This job required learning quickly about the art of cosmetology and what was entailed with it's services. During down time, I cleaned and did various duties around the salon to make it enjoyable for each client. This was a daytime job and continuing my 4-year degree was most important, therefore I did have to leave it behind.
Great co-workers, challenging responsibilities
