It’s official!!!!! Today was my last day (ever!!!) that I had to work a retail job. Let me tell you- leaving my awesome co-workers was bitter, but moving onto the next chapter of my life and entering my career is sweeeeet.
Working retail is always something that I wasn’t fond of whatsoever- the only thing that I liked about it was the discount (duh) but it really is true when they say it’s the people you work with not the place.
This retail job- working at the shoe store, was the best retail gig I’ve ever had. I met some amazing people who made my day when I walked into work- one manager in particular that always brought us donuts and subs and special treats to help ourselves to- her way of saying thank you and a huge pick me up.
My co-workers and I were always cracking jokes, having a good time and work was genuinely a really great atmosphere.
I won’t lie and say that it was all amazing all the time there’s some things that customers would do that realllllly exercised my patience. Instead of telling you “these are situations I can’t stand” I’m gonna tell you how those situations taught me what I want to be as a customer.
Being the one first hand to clean up messes left behind by customers, I always want to be neat and tidy. I always put things back where I found them and how I found them.
2. Time friendly
What I mean by this is being respectful of the store hours! I will now never go into a store ten minutes before its closing- and I will never ever stay in a store after it does close (a little secret, associates aren’t allowed to tell people the store is close & to kindly make their way out)
For the sake of the universe, if you’re in a bad mood don’t come to a retail store and take it out on the employees. Don’t put those bad vibes onto the poor associates who are just tryna do their job. I will always be polite to retail employees, and everyone I come across in life, in general.
Those are just some life rules I now live by.
Other than that I can say that it feels really good not having to rely on part time wages anymore, that I definitely won’t miss.
On to the next chapter!
