As a retail business, our sales associates are required to work some evenings most holidays and most weekends. In order to provide a balance, we will give two consecutive days off in a week as well as the option for one weekend a month.
Each new associate will receive on the job training and will shadow one of our veteran sales associates so that they can be walked through live interactions with actual customers.
