After leaving my last job, I needed something to pay the bills. I enjoyed my time in retail, but wanted to do it in an environment talking about something that I knew about, and that I was passionate about, unlike the fishing/hunting/camping environment that I was in previously. Video games fit the bill for that.
Although I enjoy what I'm doing, I much prefer more of a support role with less emphasis on the sales side of things. There are a number of sales goals for many different metrics that we are incentivised to try and meet within the sales week. Additionally, the hours are very scarce, and I'm looking for something that would either supplement the hours I currently have, or one that could potentially replace this job, provided that enough hours are offered..
