Employment

Sales Assistant

STERNS Parow Centre
Sanlam Centre, Parow, Feb 2020 to Jun 2020
Additional skills to working as a Fashion Fixer: MANUAL PRICE CHANGE* on New Lay-by system for catalogue markdowns, however do not have personal access. MANUAL PRICE CHANGE* on Point-of-Service (i.e. F12) on cash and entry sales for catalogue markdowns. Log repairs to jewelers on Point-of-Service (option 14). Calling customers to collect repairs. Cellphone sales. RICA (still requires practice). Counting of watches only- regular weekly stock check. Packing and unpacking windows morning and end-of-day. Filling dockets (all store closure documents- filing sensitives, cellular, acknowledgements, etc). Reasons for leaving: the girls I worked with were mean regularly. I'd be asked: What am I wearing? What's wrong with your hair? Why don't you get yourself a new manager? Why don't you ask that manager if they have a vacancy for you? When I try to build a relationship with another store, I get asked: Should I remind you who's your manager? Other days it's: "I asked you a question!" or "you always have an answer for everything." If my nails are nice, I'd be asked to bleach the entire store to the point that I no longer have nice nails- and I'd have to endure the rest of the day like that. Some days I get told: "Do I have to tell you everything you should do?" and when I take my own initiative, the girls ask "why am I so forward?" - I just can't win
