Fun and productive, surrounded by friendly coworkers
Temporary Sales Associate (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 17 février 2019
Right after my interview with the manager was completed, she gave me a chance to choose which days I worked and had the option of extending or shortening my hours on the day of. Since this was a seasonal job, I was only kept for the week leading up to Christmas, at which time I enjoyed the quick pace of the environment as it motivated me to work more efficiently. I was stationed mainly in the gift-wrapping, however I also had the opportunity to stock and organize products, assist customers who were in search of something in particular, and answer phone calls. I enjoyed the little benefits, such as being able to choose our hours and getting free pizza on the weekends that I was scheduled to work. Additionally, I enjoyed being around my coworkers who were all very welcoming and helpful, especially on the first day when I had limited time to get trained for gift-wrapping. I learned from this brief experience at mastermind toys how difficult it is to find specific products that customers are looking for, so it really is important to take the time to familiarize yourself with the surroundings and where everything is located. I appreciated the experience I received in communicating with customers in a friendly and approachable manner, which is something that I used to struggle with but now don't. I believe that the prior statement, in addition to getting to know the people I worked with were the most enjoyable parts of the job.
I was not told on my first day, how to to log in my hours. That was probably the only issue I had, as I went the entire week, not knowing how to log inplus... and out before and after my shifts. Luckily, the manager was patient and helpful, in ensuring that my hours were logged correctly in order for me to receive my full pay.
Overall though, I am happy to say that this job has further influenced my abilities as an efficient individual, as well as a team player. It made me value the time and effort that other employees invest in order to satisfy a fellow customer's wishes.moins
Seasonal Sales Associate (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 15 août 2019
Have worked at Mastermind Toys for a winter season, and the staff were very friendly and lovely to work with. Managers were easy to approach and gave thoughtful feedback. Only downside really was that due to there being so many seasonal staff, I didn’t get many shifts (about 3 or 4 a week) and due to the size of the store, they were not looking for more full time staff at the time
