job update and new toy!

Things are going very well at the new job! Since my last post, I was supposed to train at Rockefeller Center for one week. After being there for three days, the general manager asked me to stay on at Rock Center for the next six weeks to help out. Rock Center is the main focus store for the whole company so I'm really pumped that they want me to work at their location! I'll be working in the intimates and accessories department which is really great since its the department I'm working in at SoHo. When I go back to my normal store, I will be able to come in full speed ahead and be as helpful as possible.

Also last week I got my iPad 3! I'm actually dictating this blog as you read! There are definitely differences to get used to such as typing on the keyboard without feeling any buttons. However, using the dictation function is really fun! I'm actually dictating this whole blog post. I didn't know if it was going to work because I think Siri on the iPhone has some major confusion but this is working very well!

Happy spring time to everyone!


a brief hiatus

So, I stopped writing for awhile. I didn't feel like I had anything interesting to write about, but I'm going to try to write one post a week. I think that is definitely doable.

Since my last post I have done many things, the biggest being quitting Club Monaco and starting at Anthropologie. This week was my first week at my new location and it went very well. I did a lot of training just getting to know the store and it's inner workings and I think it's going to be a good fit for me. I really get along with my direct supervisor and am completely inspired by the SM. Everyone has the kind of work ethic and good spirit that I've been looking for and going to work has been very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to two weeks from now (2 more weeks of training- 1 at my store and 1 at a different location) when I get to really dig into my role as I&A (intimates and accessories) Supervisor and start things like merchandising, monitoring stock levels, etc.

On my last day at CM, my wonderful, amazing staff got me some gifts and a cake and took me out to dinner. I was a mess and cried several times from being so overwhelmed with love! My new staff is much larger but I hope that I have the opportunity to get to know everyone as well as I knew my old team. We were a real family.
