Working Retail Made Me Cuss!

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Expo Design Center part-time for more than 5 years

ProsMy coworkers were among the nicest people I ever met. Working retail is like being an administrative assistant, but with better treatment from coworkers. I learned how to select appliances and plumbing fixtures from the customers. Many customers were lovely. One lovely couple brought tomatoes grown from their garden! I also learned that people should do product research online, not rely solely on sales people -I saw some of my coworkers selling more expensive stuff to boost their weekly sales numbers.

ConsRetail = low pay, lower raises. Customers can become irate.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just teach how to be better sales people (i.e., how to close the sale), but how to provide the best customer service.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nice Place

Soft Flooring (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Expo Design Center full-time for more than a year

ProsYou get to work with lots of old people who hate their lives

ConsThat they use a point system for any issues with you being late.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of point system and hire within for management instead of young dumb people from outer space.

It was a great place to start my career because I could make mistakes and learn without being financially penalized.

Bath Project Designer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Expo Design Center

ProsFun atmosphere, ability to move up in rank/position, each project was different and challenging, and I enjoyed bouncing ideas off of my coworkers

ConsCould only work 40 hours per week, so if projects took longer per week to complete, it resulted in poor completion performance

Advice to Senior ManagementReally spend some time getting to know the interior design field to gain a better understanding of true project timeframes
