    I worked at Aldo part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount is the only thing I can think of, how sad

    Cons

    Meeting sales quotas, closing shifts entail you to stay an extra 2 hours, way too fast paced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think you're always right. Have some faith in your employees just because you're above us management wise does not mean you have the right to pretend like you have taught us everything we need to know as trainees. You expect us to know so much of your policies and act shocked when we are clueless because YOU never told us about them. Stop pushing us so hard because I'm sure the only reason you do it is because you earn some type of "bonus" at the end of the day. No one chooses this job as a career path. We don't care if we are helping you out or not to be honest at the end of the day all we care about is ourselves. Understand that.

    Pros

    10%discount on shoes was great around the holiday season. If you get a full time job you get benefit's. Your co works are always pretty.

    Cons

    Always having to judge people upon first site. Following people around the store was encouraged to keep the five fingers discount to a minimum.

    Pros

    Good discount. One can express itself through fashion. Fast paced and fun sometimes . Flexible hours. Young and fresh environment.

    Cons

    The only way you can move up is by kissing the right ... Boots. High school drama , gossip and betrayal . Truly tragic

    Pros

    Nothing but horrible upper management

    Cons

    Everything was bad there that's why I lasted 2 months and got another far better retail management position. He's were bad always working over time. Upper management always breathing down your neck for conversion show care etc.. Glad I quit will never work there again hope this company goes out of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grasp on real market trends and pay people according you want to hire fashion forward employees and pay them garbage
