    I worked at Cavender's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Insurance, vacation time, holidays

    Cons

    Working Sundays, long hours for the busy months of the year, November and December

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, get to know them as a person, not just the next one clocking in

    As a cashier, you pretty get taken advantage of.

    Pros

    You get a discount.

    Cons

    You get paid by the hour. If you make a sale, you don't get absolutely nothing out of it. Plus they have you cleaning out fitting rooms, helping customers, fixing clothes, and of course ringing up people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop out working cashiers too much.

    I worked at Cavender's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discount on some merchandise was good.

    Cons

    Company doesn't care about the people that bring in the $. The stockers, cashiers and sales people are treated like scum, unless that is they are cute and friendly with the manager who is 4'2"but thinks he is 7'. Sales people never make more than 5% commission. They go through employees like water. Definitely the worst job I ever had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you want to be treated. Stop the screaming, cussing and threatening. You will never be respected with this attitude, but then again you can't respect others when you don't respect yourself!

    I have been working at Cavender's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting new customers and being remembered by the customers is nice. That's about it.

    Cons

    The management is AWFUL. They take two hour breaks but sales and cashiers only get 30 minutes. Even if they work a good 10 hour shift. The sales people steal each others sales. The training is more of a "sink or swim" type of deal. The management has no trust in their employees. Employees are very racist and lazy. If you're not willing to work way after your scheduled time to leave, you're not an "asset" to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take two hour lunches unless you're willing to give your employees the same luxury. Keep an eye on your sales employees because they don't play fair. Don't make your employees work 10 hour shifts unless they request it.

    I worked at Cavender's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, a lot of hours, relaxed environment, easy job.

    Cons

    poor management, very competitive sales people, management lets go of all the hard working employees and only keeps the ones they are friends with. They'll give you a 30 minute lunch but not two 15 minute breaks, not everyone is treated equal, cashiers will give your sales to other sales people, or other sales people will try (and very often) take your costumers. Sales people work on commissions so you make as much as you sell, cashiers/stockers/receivers will only ever make minimum wage?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop s**t talking about your employees. You're the one wasting your life away at a novelty western store.

    Pros

    Good hours, Flexible schedules, employee discount.

    Cons

    Lack of annual pay raises, low pay, salary caps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking your knowledgeable employees for granted. Your customers want someone who knows your products and inventory, more thank someone who wears the clothes. Clothes don't make the Cowboy or Sales person!
