Working in retail is not for the faint-hearted, as dealing with customers all day long can be hard work and a challenge. But such work also comes with rewards – you’ll meet so many nice people in one day, and some positions also have a staff discount.
Hours can often be tailored to you as well to work around other commitments. And walking around a store all day and stacking shelves, among other jobs, is good exercise — no need for a gym after a full day of work. Working in retail can also be perfect for a first job, developing people skills and building confidence when dealing with others in a fast-paced environment.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at the retail jobs currently available in Downtown Burton for those looking for work. All of these jobs are currently offered on the Indeed.com job site.
