What I liked

The management team is orderly, supportive, and flexible of employee's needs. The environment is close to the beach, most customers are local so it makes more of a lighthearted, personable experience.

Advice

If you are planning on applying for a sales associate position, come prepared to communicate and expand your social skillset! You will be challenged in how well you can sell an item or promotion based on your communication skills. Customers are going to ask questions and have concerns that you need to figure out of them. Thus comes the beauty of customer service.
