    What are store clerk's duties, for example a clothing store?

    I'm 16 and I want to apply for a job as a store clerk, at the mall, like forever21, know style,ect any clothing store in the mall. What do they do? Do they do what cashiers do, if so I don't want to be a cashier. Is it hard? What are some do's and don'ts? Btw do I have to have a work permit?

    I'm pretty sure you need to be 18 to work retail, but I'm not too sure about that. As far as the job goes, it depends on where you work. In most retail establishments, the associate does everything from assisting customers, to cleaning and straightening out the sales floor, to cashing out customers. Some stores have different associates for cashing and others for assisting customers. Generally speaking, you can expect to be on a cash register at least some of the time. The work can be stressful at times, but by no means is it hard. I work at Macy's and I do all of the above. All you really need is a good personallity and be outgoing and willing to approach customers asking them if they need help with anything. Hope this helps :)
