What kinds of career programs can you take to learn about how to become a retail associate?
I am very flexible with change and willing to learn new things #retail #Bussnessmagangement #learning #career
Most retail sales associates receive on-the-job training, which usually lasts a few days to a few months. In small stores, an experienced employee often trains newly hired workers. In large stores, training programs are more formal and usually conducted over several days.
Retail sales associates typically have opportunities to advance to supervisory or managerial positions. Some employers want candidates for managerial positions to have a college degree.
Depending on your age, some retailers have internships (paid and unpaid) to learn the company. Target has a paid internship for college students to learn the position of an Executive (similar to assistant manager). Many of those students have job offers waiting for them once they graduate.
