-Typical day at work consisted of greeting customers and learning more about sales and working at retail. I learnt more about how retail works and improved my communication skills.Workplace culture was really good as dress codes were open for your own taste of fashion.

Quite slow, unfair

Unfortunately, being young I believe i was taken advantage of. I wasn't given fair shifts what so ever and no one really cared even if i told them. I loved the environment, but we were pushed to make unrealistic goals and were never rewarded for hard work, not even with shifts. Very disappointing.

Cons

Not enough hours

Great workplace, full of fun and great conversations

A typical day at work would require myself coming into work with a smile on my face hi-fiving my fellow team workers. We learned a lot about our customers on a daily basis simply by asking numerous questions and understanding who they were while adjusting the shoe to their desire. Our current manager for the past 2-3 years has been amazing and extremely accommodating with everything we've needed as well as workplace tools allowing us to keep growing within the sales workforce. The hardest part about the job I'd have to say is when it came around Christmas time the stores can become extremely over crowded and attending to several customers at a time takes its toll. Other than that the most enjoyable part of the job would be coming in and being able to work with such a pro active team and management that keep you motivated on a daily basis.

Pros

High percentage discount on products within the store and stores affiliated.

Cons

Less shifts and less pay
Was this review helpful?

I liked working for Platypus because the pay was excellent as well as the management.

My typical day at work involved unloading trucks, taking inventory and reloading the truck with stock to go out to various stores. I learned shipping/receiving, damage control and handling UPS for personal orders to customers. Management, as well as, my co-workers were always friendly and professional. The hardest part of the job was some of the physical demands, but I still enjoyed that, because it helped me to stay physically fit.

Pros

Working with management and my co-workers

Cons

Budget cut and lay off
