In my Past

Here again. In my new job. Usually when I write, I write a post from my computer but today it’s quite different. Since I’m at work, I have to update it from my phone. Anyway, video is done. Just have to post it on Vimeo and make a separate page for it. Besides that, I have to complete video blog #4 by tonight. Don’t know what I’ll talk about, but it has to be on Swatch. But since I’m not really going to Swatch anymore, what should I do it on? Guess the positive and negatives about it. Talk to you guys later.

Days are Dwindling

Hello all. Just checking in. On July 4th, Independence Day, I worked at Swatch. For the most part, it was really slow. Just as it’s been since the beginning of summer. We made sales of course, but numbers were low. Didn’t make my goal. Again. Anyway, I checked to see my work schedule and to my surprise, I only work once a week now. I was upset, but that’s just a sign that it’s time to look for employment elsewhere. I did learn a lot. Especially talking to people but I just can’t work 7 hrs a week. As soon as I have a new job, I’m giving my two weeks notice. It’s been fun but it’s time to move on.

Been a while…

Hello. It’s me again. Last night, June 27, 2012, I worked at Swatch. I had a closing shift which I haven’t had in a while. Anyway, when I first came into the store, it was as it’s usually been in the summer: dead. There weren’t a lot of people inside the store and no customers. Seeing that, I was discouraged and thought it was going to be a long day at work. At first, it was just that. Swatch was totally dead the first few hours. Actually, the beach was dead. A few hours later, maybe around 6 or 7, the store got super full. We made a lot of sales and got a bit overwhelmed. After it was all said and done, we had a lot of sales. It’s actually been a while since it’s been full and we’ve made sales. But overall though, it was a good day. Talk to you guys later.

Channing Tatum? At work?!

Hello everyone! Not a lot of new things has happened at Swatch lately. After like a week of not working though, there was a new surprise once I came into work on Saturday, June 23rd. To my surprise, there was a new co-worker; his name is Owen. Owen is from Ireland and he’s a bit tall. I’ll try to get a picture of him soon so I can put it on a new page. This new page will be called Staff. In this page, you’ll find all the pictures of the staff that work at Swatch in Lincoln Rd. So anyway, Owen seems cool. At one point in time, we were both standing outside trying to attract customers. We talked for a bit and started to get to know each other. Although I didn’t really notice at first, it was brought to my attention that he looks similar to Channing Tatum. He told me that he gets that a lot from different people. Until next time I give you guys another new story. Peace!

Pondering about my project

As I sit here pondering what my topic for class should be, I can’t help but wonder about work, school and my future. School is good. I can’t complain. I have so much time from work that I have all the time in the world for school. That makes me happy, but it also upsets me when it comes to work. You see, I work at a store called Swatch. I’ve been with the company for 2 months. My job includes me being a salesman. It’s my duty to sell to customers our products and to make it feel valuable to every single person that comes in. It all started dandy, but lately my hours have been cut. Don’t ask me why, but they have. I mean, I do come to work early every time and I do my absolute best to make sells. I treat this job as I would my career. Why? So these people say great things about me to future employers. I’m not ok with them giving me 14 hrs a week. I’m pretty sure not a lot of people would be either if they were in my shoes. For my project in class, I intend to do it for Swatch. If not at Swatch, I have ex coworkers who work at Fossil now who would be glad to participate in my project. I still don’t know yet, but I’ll have some time in the next 2 days to figure out what it’ll be based on. I’ll update everyday to explain how everything works out. Until next time.
