My main responsibility was to maximize the sale of various products ranging from rate plans, cell phones, accessories, and promotions serving 100+ people at the location. Working with management and sales associate come up with effective ways to strategically sell each product and service. Then establish monthly sales goals for multiple store locations and order products from 10+ vendors. Furthermore, assist in screening, hiring, and training employees both full-time and part-time. Last but not least, remotely oversee 300+ routine transactions of our seven stores through the POS system for charges on payments, activations, and account changes etc.
Working for that authorized dealer of metroPCS, I was raised by sales and customer service. The fast paced goal oriented environment was a great building experience. Instilling in me a fierce competitor in setting and crushing goals. Allowing me to bolster my skills in communication, teamwork, troubleshooting, and technical support.
The very first job I got during high school was working at Estee Lauder’s manufacturing plant North Tec. in Bristol, PA.
I started out working as an Assembler at first on the production line, being assigned a tasked and doing it continuously the whole night. Sitting on production belt doing various tasks; putting small powder trays the size of a quarter, placing various size brushes, or packing pencils to produce hundreds or thousands of products in the night shift.
In a matter of weeks, I had an opportunity to advance into the position of Line Attendant/ Material Handler. My responsibilities grew from just placing a brush in the compact all night long to managing the production line. A normal day in my new position included managing 15-20 assemblers, assigning and instructing them with various tasks on the production line. Furthermore, checking the quality of goods produced to meet QA standards.
From a personal growth and life lesson standpoint working in a labor position at Estee Lauder was a humbling experience. Working for minimum wage doing it all lifting boxes up to 40lbs, taking out the trash, cleaning the production floor, and managing people and product taught me the real value of hard work and money.
