    I worked at Cato


    Flexibility in scheduling and comfortable work environment. I never had to worry if I needed to make changes to my schedule because the management was very accommodating.


    Pay its not so great but I will say that its very hard to get fired. As long add your not stealing money or riding the clock them the company will retrain you and try to keep you on board.

I replied that same day and then never heard back from them. I sent her a list of times again and still never received a response. Very unprofessional.
