    Pros

    customers are very friendly. you are selling a product that makes people happy - so it is a fun job working with the customers

    Cons

    You are on you feet & moving and lifting constantly. No breaks were given except for lunch after 5 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Management absolutely needs to provide breaks for the employees during the holidays. we were selling $2,000 -4,000. merchandise per hour with only 2 cash registers. A quick break for a breather & water was needed. Scheduling a person for a few hours to cover breaks would have really helped!
