Some might say that living in a consumer driven society is a bad thing, but many of us can't live without our Mooks, our Nikes, or our Mambo fix, or the latest computer upgrade. As a result, the retail workforce is huge. To succeed as a sales assistant, it is vital that you enjoy the buzz of serving people. Just because you're having an off day, doesn't mean your customers should have to endure poor service. If you're well presented and spoken, have good product knowledge, are not shy about approaching customers and don't mind standing on your feet for long periods of time, then you should enjoy working in this occupation.
