The Planet Access Company Store is a retail store with a social purpose and I love it. They help individuals with disabilities achieve their full potential. I have been working as a Cashier Assistant, an intern position, and it has been fun.
My duties at the Planet Access Company Store include:
Bagging items for customers after their purchase
Cleaning the store to make sure it is tidy for customers
Sizing clothes so that customers can get the sizes they are looking for
Helping customers with any questions or concerns
I love my position at the Planet Access Company Store because I enjoy helping customers find what they are looking for. I must admit, sometimes it is hard to bag the items they purchase but everyone is willing to help when I need it. I have learned a lot about working in retail since joining the Planet Access Company Store team. For example, we often move items around and constantly receive a supply of new items. I have learned a lot of different brand names there, like Horny Toad. I usually have to look around the store to see the changes when clothes are moved around or new items arrive.
I truly enjoy spending time with my co-workers and I’m even using the skills I’ve built at the Planet Access Company Store at my new job at Walmart. I hope you will stop by one of these days and visit us! Hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do.
