    I have been working at Bon-Ton Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and easy to work with. Dress code isn't too strict. Discount is really good.

    Cons

    Customers find coupons confusing. Sales change too often. Not enough people scheduled on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the print on coupons larger and easier for customers to understand. Stop using wording like "Save UP TO 75%" on signs and just say what it actually is.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bon-Ton Stores.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call from them within a week. The interview was pretty formal. They had several sheets of papers with questions they had to ask me. A lot of it was repetitive, basic questions. Overall it was relaxed though. They told me they had a few other people to interview for the position and that I would be notified by the end of the week if I got the job. I ended up getting an offer.
