Santiago, Anyel
Narrative

Learning something can be a scary experience. I Anyel Santiago, sale associate and a cashier in Old Navy, Dolphin Mall since April 19, 2013 I realize people can't manage their moods. The customers can be rude sometimes throwing the items on the cashier, some cut off other customers in line, some are so friendly that they make a half hour conversation with you, and some are just weird. But besides that, they'ress the people that live in the same world as I do. So, I can't change how they feel on a certain day. Heck, even sometimes I act in an unpleasant or pleasant way; when the situtation is opposite and am standing on the other side of the cashier. But since we're human beings and we encounter emotions; I know that everyone has their moments let it be good or bad.

First of all, not everything is what we expect it to be... Working as a cashier has taught me different type of lessons. For instance, when I started in Old Navy it was basically my first real job. Before that, I was working in daycare, an office and warehouses but none could ever compare to working at Old Navy. I've been working for a year and five months now, and the experience working there has been a roller coaster. Every day I experience something new, for example; there was a time about five to six months ago where Old Navy was crowed, the clothe everywhere, people talking loud, kids running around and some crying on their baby carriage. You could feel the hummied environment, so many people and everything going on was making everyone claustrophobic. Any how it was insane and an occupied but I has amount other where in a good spirit, cheerful, smilling, and helping everyone who needed it. In the meanwhile, I was going around handing out coupons and giving an outstanding customer service, to what I believe. My manager then called me over because she needed more cashiers.

Immediately, I headed over, and that's when everything began. Taking register number

    During my time at Primark I particularly enjoyed working with the public and offering a friendly and helpful service to customers. I was able to assist customers with queries and guide them suitably to requested items. A particular responsibility was informing customers of new schemes and offers to allow them to make informed decisions. The main aim was to ensure within reason, the customers’ shopping experience was enjoyable. In particularly I appreciated the invaluable opportunities to deal with difficult and sometimes unexpected situations due to the store size to reach a reasonable solution. I learnt how to deal with complaints and customer dissatisfaction reports diplomatically and keep the customer happy, but was also able to comprehend my limits and pass complaints onto the supervisor or manager when needed. One particular importance aspect I learnt was to always address the client’s needs first before any other responsibilities. I also handled cash and worked competently on tills, particularly at busy time. This entailed working systematically and efficiently under pressure even at times when certain aspects are not functioning flawlessly.…

    Some things that I learned from this service experience was that I should never go into anything with expectations. When I decided to go that afternoon, I was really bummed because I don’t really like service hours and I didn’t want to go on a long and boring service event. However, the positive personalities of all the people working there perked…

    We see animals every day. They are our pets, companions, and, to some, family. They are also our dinner, new jacket or bag, and the pain behind our household products. So when does it qualify as cruel, or even inhumane? What is animal cruelty? According to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) “Intentional cruelty, or abuse, is knowingly depriving an animal of food, water, socialization, or veterinary care. Maliciously torturing, maiming, or killing an animal.” Three major examples of animal cruelty today are found in the food industry, shelters, and testing facilities.…

    Imagine constantly being asked “Why can’t you just pull yourself together?” Being told “You have nothing to be depressed about, you have so much going for you!”, “But you don’t SEEM depressed, you were just laughing an hour ago!” For those struggling with many of life’s abundant obstacles, suicide seems like the ideal compromise for the self-destruction and agony to end. I believe that suicide is not the answer because I’ve overcome it myself. I’ve had to learn in the most difficult of ways that suicide is exceedingly traumatic for the friends and family members. 90 percent of people who have taken their own life have a diagnosable mental disorder. There are countless alternatives for people who struggle with these disorders, long before suicide is even being contemplated.…

    “I’ve been drinking since I was twelve, but I don’t think I was exactly twelve. Maybe older, maybe younger. I’m a little tipsy now but that’s not what you want to hear. I was once told I drank like an eel, I’m not sure what that meant, but again that’s not what you want to hear. You want me to sit here and tell you the exact traumatic moment when I began drinking; It was the first time I ever had that nightmare. The next day I asked my dad why drank, he said ‘I drink to forget’. He never told me what he was trying to forget. I thought ‘I drinking makes you forget, maybe I’ll forget the dream.’ So I drank a couple of beers then went to sleep. The dream was worse than before, but that was the cycle every night for the past thirty-five years.”…

    I really enjoyed reading your discussion post. I always find it interesting when reading another's classmates discussion post. When it comes to interacting with you customer and keeping them happy, you nailed it. You said, "we are constantly being rewarded for providing excellent service, in the end what is more important than job security." Without job security, you and your family could be jobless. One of my biggest pet peeves, is going into some department store or restaurant and encountering a employee who is has a additude and is borderline disrespectful. Why should I spend my hard earn money at said place of business, when, me the customer who basically pays you bills, is feeling somewhat slighted?…

    I strongly believe that if one is to be successful in society, setting goals and prioritizing them is very crucial. Having your goals set and prioritizing them does not only give you a clear focus on things you have to do, but it helps you to organize your plans so that you can set time limit and boundaries in achieving those goals. There are so many goals that I want to achieve my life. Since goals can only be achieved if they are realistic, timing and attainable, I have categorized my goals into long and short term goals.…

    Football Narrative

    There had been only a couple days left till the very first football game of my senior year. The team we are playing was the Haywood County Spurs, and the game we had been preparing and practicing for since our sophomore year. The sun was blistering hot, shining down on my shoulder pads, baking me in my uniform like a freshly made apple pie on a summer day. This only made practice worse as I put all effort into it as I could. I was so sore and fatigued and happy that by the end of the week we wouldn’t be having any more sweat dripping practices. 100 yard dashes and High-jumps were not something people wanted to do every day, that’s for sure. And after those warm-up exercises we moved onto play calling. The team worked hard together during practices and repetitively did each and every play so that they came to us like a fond habit. We wanted to have these plays inscribed in our minds as we slept.…
