Today was day 1 of training, learnign how to get into the computers to do our time, clock in/out request time off, can even be at home and see our work schedule see when we are schedule to be in, see the hours worked its all on computer and being able to access it at home is pretty neat so don't have to go to the office to request some like pay stubs I can print them off at home. The training videos were something else, most on safety, chemical safety, proper lifting stuff I already know about since I dealt with that stuff for 15 years working for my town municpality. One they called it top stock safety check. You bascially check the top stock its over stock for the shelves below, you wouldn't think of the safe or unsafe issue till you get through the video and then it ask you find the safety issue of top stock that one was tough but hopefully will learn more once I get on the floor. Videos on whats for theft and how to approach it pretty much if somebody is stealing something let them go out the door and report to loss prevention but did say what to look for and how people shop lift its crazy what people will do to steal something. The sales video talks about how to interact with a customer to engage in their needs with out them saying I don't need help and walking off, you want to keep them but also understand what kind of help they need. There was alot of info to take in and alot more to come, my nerves today was off the charts trying to learn it and hopeing I can learn and stick with it don't forced out the door. I am more of a hands on learning I have to actually do it to learn rather then read or watch a video which is good for info but for me to learn I have to do it hands on. If anybody here has or is working retail like lowes, or somehere simalier can give some tips of what to do I am all for it, this is my first ever retail job, I have been mostly a outdoor contruction type of worker so being inside in this type of job is all new to me. My last job I had to deal with our customers driving a dump truck so I know I can handle that its the stocking inventory aspect that has me worried. I am not good with number crunching so thats going to be the kicker. If this don't work out I have 2 autozone stores that called I can go to and see if they will hire me and try that out if that don't work I don't know what I will do.
