"Brand Knowledge is one unique skill that I have learned while working at 2nd Time Around. Knowing the product is extremely important and customers want to know what they are buying. Working here you really get to understand designers and figure out price points, which are determined by age and value. I wouldn't know this information if I didn't work here. It's also important to know what people are looking for, and essentially what is going to sell. When I talk about my job to my family or friends they are always so impressed with what I know about brands, designers and price points. "
"I am a college student, that has worked in retail before, but never consignment. I came inside just to check out what the store was about and see what they had. I thought it was an interesting concept and applied. I've now been working here for 2 years and absolutely love it!"
"What excites me about this company is the opportunity. You have so much room to grow as a person, which you don't normally get at other retail jobs. This company loves to hear from their employees and to get feedback on what works, and what doesn't work."
"I have recently been promoted, so I would say in my new position being more firm and direct is a challenge for me. You want to be nice all the time, but when you are a part of running a business, it needs to be clear who is in charge."
"Our customers love 2nd Time Around, because we really take the time to really know each and every one of our customers. We develop relationships with our customers and really make them feel special. We are their personal stylists, and you can't find that at any retail store without it costing extra! Our customers come in for the experience, and they love to talk to us about their day while finding that perfect outfit!"
"We love setting goals, not only as a store but as a company as well. So if we reach our goal everyone on the team gets really excited about it! Also the company has challenges that you or your team can win, to get certain rewards. "
