Help people test fragrances? Have fragrance conversations all day? Learn new fragrance stuff everyday? Isn't that like the most fun job in the world?
Trust me, the job was not that much fun; nasty co-workers, evil upper-management, viciousness abounded; often times customers were far less than pleasant.
But I always treated people like a million dollars, everyone deserves to be treated respectfully. I also never asked people "if I could help them", I would say hello, and say "If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask." But that was me.
I was accosted many times this past week-end, while out perusing the stores, and SA's are not at all pleasant. The only nice experience I had was at a Macy's in Burlington MA, with the Clarins SA, and the Dior SA, they could not have been nicer. Now the SA's in Sephora in the same mall were very unhappy, or at least that was how they presented themselves, and not too helpful. When I mentioned I used to work for Sephora at another location, one became downright mean and dismissive towards me.
I guess most of these people do not realize which end of the sale they are on, they are supposed to be the accommodating ones, not the dismissive nasty ones.
