Senior Sales Assistant Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Sales Assistant?

Senior Sales Assistant in Brisbane:
Pros: I get to take home any bread left over at the end of the day. The people I work with are all lovely. It's in a climate controlled mall area so it doesn't get too hot or cold. It's close to bus and train stations so public transport is easy, and also has plenty of parking spaces if I drive. My shifts are regular and rosters go up two weeks in advance. I don't have to take any of my work home with me.
Cons: I get paid a lot less than most of my friends working in similar jobs. If we don't make our sales average (above a usual transaction) for 3 weeks in a row we have to meet with the manager and review our suitability for work.
