Young, vibrant, fast paced and deadline orientated environment
A typical day would involve a stock take in the morning before the store opens. Stock is counted individually then captured on the system and sent off to head office and designers. This is done to check for stock losses and to ensure that proper procedures are put in place in order to prevent such activities from happening.
From there on, we are briefed by management as to what is expected from each of us for the day. Our trading day starts thereafter and we are placed in our various departments for the day.
Management is very approachable and assists where help is needed, whether it is a personal concern or whether it is to advance your career within the group.
Co-workers are supportive and friendly. We created an environment where we treated one another with respect and dignity. This enhanced my working environment completely and enjoyed interacting with my peers.
The hardest part of the job was having deadline on top of deadline, dealing with customer and designers queries and complaints but there was nothing that a supportive team could not manage.
The most enjoyable part of the job has to be when we've delivered and the bosses are proud of us. With the industry being so competitive, the pressure is immense but we've always given our best and reaped the benefits of it thereafter.
