Stinne appreciates the flexibility and versitality of working in Søstrene Grene

Stinne Smedegaard, Store Assistant in Aarhus, Denmark

”What is really special about working in Søstrene Grene is feeling how the Sister Spirit really thrives. It sounds like a cliche, but it is really true.”

From first after-school job to full-time employment

Stinne started working in Søstrene Grene as a 15 year old when she was in 8th grade and applied for her first after-school job. She has been pleased with her job and kept it as a part-time job during high school. Today, she works full-time in her gap year prior to the beginning of her studies.

”My job in Søstrene Grene has been adjustable according to my life situation, which is really lovely. The flexibility means a lot to me and has been the reason for me being able to keep my job in spite of my changing everyday life.”

”As a young worker, the first year, I was just working at the cash register. Most of my colleagues were a bit older than me and went to high-school, but it didn’t affect the sense of community and team spirit. Everyone were very sweet, so it was always a nice experience to go to work – also as a new, young employee.”

A strong Sister Spirit

”What is really special about working in Søstrene Grene is feeling how the Sister Spirit really thrives. It sounds like a cliche, but it is really true. There are times where the Sister Spirit is truly distinct. For example when HQ employees come by the store or the times I am helping in another store. There is a strong sense of community across the organisation.”

”Right now, we are a team in the store where many of us are in the same life situation and are having a gap year before starting our studies. There is a lot of great energy amongst us Sisters in the store, and when the connection with colleagues is great, it affects other thing. To me, it becomes evident because I get more energy and bring more good mood when I interact with customers in the store."

A fun and versatile job

"Before I started I did not realise how much work there is behind the scenes of a store. Some days, I almost spend 8 hours in our storeroom because we just received new products. There are so many things happening behind the scenes such as coordinating activities and ordering of products which all need to be done in order for the daily operations of the store to run smoothly. The tasks in the store are generally very versatile and obviously also include stocking shelves and serving customers. "

"I think that my job is fun, I have great colleagues, and I have developed a lot from it. Specifically, I have had the opportunity to develop my customer service skills as well as been allowed to take upon a lot of responsibilty."
