And holy shit I love this job. It’s got a great, laid back atmosphere. The co-workers who are training me are all super nice. There are periods where its several hours in-between customers, and while that sounds bad for a salesman, I actually really like it because I’m secretly an introvert and I really enjoy the quiet time alone. It’s really easy to keep the stores clean and there aren’t any stupid rules or chores to do that make me want to die. PLUS it has a really good base salary + any commission and the commision is also pretty nice. The only downside is that since we are in a new market we don’t get a lot of customers because no one knows who we are since we just opened our first store this February.
I have an evaluation in 2 months where they give me 3 tests to see if I can continue being a salesman or if I need to go to a different department and my god do I hope I pass those tests.
They are opening a new store here in Lincoln next February. As long as I pass those tests and get learned up on all the beds (we have 80+ we sell) and all the ins-and-outs I hope to become the new Store Manager at that store. That’s my goal and I’ll keep ya’ll updated. :)
