Sales Associate in Adairsville:
"A Perfect Fit."
Pros: Of all the various work-related tasks, my favorite is a perfectly successful sale. Despite the daily drudgery of answering the same questions over and over again, when the sale is complete and the product properly delivered and installed, I find satisfaction in my customers level of satisfaction. Helping people is what I enjoy the most.
Cons: Irrelevant complications with orders... In the same manner that a waiter/waitress finds that all things guest-related have gone perfectly from said wait-staffs perspective only to find that, somewhere in the process the specifics requested by the guest were forgotten, I feel quite dysfunctional when orders go awry due to things beyond my control. Keeping calm and correcting the problem, both internally and externally, while being cursed from head to toe is a challenge.
