Whatever stage of life you're in at the moment, it's always nice to be making your own money. Whether you are in college, high school, looking for some additional cash, or don't know what your next step is, retail is a great industry to get involved in for not just the paychecks, but also a way to stay productive and gaining life skills that retail can give you.

Here are five benefits to working in retail!

1. You're Never Bored


Especially with working in a clothing store, there is always something to be doing. Time flys when you're busy, making your shifts seem so much shorter!

2. Employee Discounts


Employee discounts are such a blessing, especially when you're surrounded by cute clothes all day but you're still bawlin' on a budget. And even if you work in a store that may not have anything you want, check out what retail group owns the store and see if you have a discount at other shops they might own.

3. Getting to Socialize With So Many People


When working in retail, there is usually always someone to talk to. Socialization in the workplace can make time fly, and if you have cool coworkers, going to work can feel like going to hang out with friends.

4. Learning Customer Service


Customer service is such a great skill to gain no matter where you end up. Learning to prioritize someone's needs and helping them find what they're looking for can be very satisfying.

5. Jobs Are Always Available


Retail will ALWAYS have jobs open! With new stores opening everywhere and employees constantly flowing in and out, finding employment in this industry is fairly easy.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
