    I worked at Citi Trends part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Usually the coworkers are awesome, the staff discount days are nice, flexible hours.

    Cons

    Policy for freight expectations is hectic when cashiering as well, also customers take you for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page, organize priorities for each store and let them work on them. Always give constructive criticism with a dose of what is going right.

    Pros

    Only thing I like about my job is working and helping out the customers that act like they have sense

    Cons

    Pay kind of sucks , raise sucks, very rude customers

    Advice to Management

    I think you guys should make raises higher 12 cents isn't nothing especially when the store manager gets raises and bonuses like its nothing.

    Pros

    Ok benifits. Easy to move up. They promote with in. Upper management is friendly to all staff. They care about customer satisfaction. They give discount days for employees. They have contest for employees to win money or gift cards. They alternate weekends for managers so everyone can get a sat/sun off. Great dress code policy.

    Cons

    Under pay management. Expect quality work but dont give good payroll. In fact they ask you to try and save the little that they do give. They dont care about employee safety. Turn over rate high. Shrink is hard to keep under control. Main reason managers get fired. Company does nothing to help with shrink other than pressure you to work harder.

    Advice to Management

    You run the store on crap payroll. With a lil staff. Your expected to be the housekeeper, loss pervention, stock team, back up cashier, recovery, and still get all your store manager duties done. Your days off are mapped out sun/thurs dont even bother asking for another day off. E mail your DM everything, they have a funny memory loss. Drink coffee because you will work long days. Get regular doc checks. Because stress is part of this job. L
