My low back pain was far worse from standing - Bun Posted: May 4th, 2012 - 4:01 pm In Reply to: standing is way better than sitting - wheres_my_job
than sitting. Knees starte hurting, too. The marble floors of dept stores have no give. If you really want to lose weight, work in the shoe department. You can also sit in the stock room while pretending to look for shoes.
Cosmetics generally pays several dollars more per hr than other departments. Shoes, cosmetics, high-end cookware, mens' suits and designer lines often have a commission on top of per hour. Some of the very high-end stores pay only commission, but you can do very well. You need the gift of gab. If you're good at remembering client names, you'll do very well. They train on product.
You get lots of freebies and discounts, too. My store had periodic 20/20 employee events - our regular 20% plus another 20% off the balance, including sale items. I was getting designer goods for a few dollars.
Be aware that the stores require that you open a charge card and that you can only get your discount by charging the items.
Cosmetic lines also hire freelancers - yes - those fragrance samplers, make-up artists, skin care specialists. They are ICs but make usually a minimum of $20/hr. You don't need to have a license but you should be adept and willing to apply makeup/skin care on customers. You will have hourly sales goals to reach too.
