Three years in cotton on really gave me a lot to remember, good memories especially. A day at work would always be different. The different type of people we encountered, the amount of workload we have to complete, the crazy peak hour crowds and not to mention the sales period. Everyday is always something new.
Despite being just a part timer, the outlet that i'm at is always short of manpower, and due to that, I sometimes have to step up my game and be doing in charge when my manager is on her off days. I do more than just what is required and to me that is something i actually feel challenged at first, however i like that challenge and i overcame that fast and adapt well. To the extent whereby now, my other senior part timers and I are training and teaching the new colleagues and the new full timer with us on how the system is at work.
The hardest part of any day at work would be the type of customers who would messed up the whole store or even be demanding, some might even be both, not forgetting those impatient ones. Plus, those customers who just have the mindset whereby "Customers are always right", well, they are wrong. The kind of treatment they gave us are really harsh and it's never a good feeling especially when we are just doing our jobs and following the company policy. However, despite whatever bad situation we faced, these are also the part of the day we will always remember.
As a part timer, i can have any off days i want.
Sometimes when the store is in a mess, we have to clear it up and prepare for the next day. Which ended up with us leaving work late.
