    I worked at Citi Trends

    Pros

    There really isn't much I could say that is good about cititrends. They're unreliable, unrealistic, and unprofessional.

    Absolutely everything there is to work with this company.

    You can be promoted VERY easily and QUICKLY...DUE to HIGH turnover rate within the company!!

    Being SO many different titles at one time, loss prevention, customer service rep. freight processor etc. and the policy on alot of things is just unrealistic

    I worked at Citi Trends

    Pros

    It was a truly great experience to work with the team in place. We all worked together in sharing of information to better the whole company.Gifted merchants that had the hand on the pulse of the customer.

    Cons

    Senior mgmt that has since left the company may have derailed the team for the short term. New players in place should have the company back on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting back to working together as a team. Sharing information and get more feedback from DM's whose opinions you trust. Repair trust issues in retail market with key vendors.
