What is a floorwalker?





Peterssidan
I'm watching the British series Are You Being Served. They are selling cloths and one of them is a floorwalker but I don't know what that is. He's mostly standing there doing nothing. What does a real floorwalker do?

haha I love that show lol. But I don't know the answer to your question.

From the position title, I would assume their job is to walk around the sales floor and help any customers they randomly meet...

Not sure though; that's just a guess.

That or someone who walks the floor, plain clothes, watching for shoplifters.

I've see the term used both ways, it really depends on context.

I'd say he was the supervisor, managing by walking around! Very Happy

I found that in one of the episodes he actually gives a good answer himself (Peacock is the floorwalker)

Peacock: I don't serve. I just direct the customers.

Customer: Is that all you do?
Peacock: Yes
