    Former Employee - Key Holder/Management in Merrick, NY

    I worked at Everything But Water (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment with opportunity to get creative with the swim suits and cover ups. A great position to start off with if you want to advance in retail because you get to work one on one with the customer and wear many hats as an employer (e.g., sales associate, manager, working alone and with others, most importantly making a sales plan for the day).

    Cons

    No middle management and hardly any sales associates so your pretty much a sales associate with more responsibility especially since the company has you work alone most of the time . In addition the pay and hours are not significantly more than a regular sales associate. There are no set boundaries so you have the awkward position of deciding who does what, especially when you are closing with another Key Holder. During my initial interview I was under the impression that I would be able to train associates and utilize more leadership experience but it turns out that the opportunity to train is rare. It is a great job for someone starting out in retail but if you have solid experience I would suggest searching further because it can get very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more sales associates than Key Holders so that way we can utilize more management skills and work in a more structured well organized environment.
