A. I work as a full-time Sales Associate with The Source. I really enjoy learning from different customers and my co-workers every day.

A. My journey so far with The Source has been a big learning experience. Since I first joined as a part-time employee, knowing that I have the co-operation of my co-workers has really motivated me. The managers I have worked with are superb and outstanding in their work, and helpful at every step.

Q. What has been the best part of your experience working at The Source?
A. The best part of working at The Source so far was the month of December because it was a really different experience to work as a sales expert during the holidays.

My advice to students would be that nothing is impossible and, if you prefer to work smart instead of working hard, then retail is the place to work. Good luck!
