    I have been working at Citi Trends part-time

    Pros

    There's really no pro for working for this company except using it as a stepping stone to gain experience.

    Cons

    Pretty Much everything. Never enough employees, policies are constantly changing, they pay too little and expect a lot of work.

    Great Experience Gained

    I worked at Citi Trends part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hours for a part time job. You either work mornings or evening and never passed 9 oclock unless its a holiday. Small group of workers so it is almost family like. Schedules are always made a week a head of time and on time. Do not have to worry about an quick change in scheduling and have to work when off. Great options to work your way up and pay raises. Helps build customer skills and communication.

    Cons

    Some employees are not as dedicated as others and leave with out notice. Rude customers.

    Pros

    The DM was very understanding

    Cons

    Too many turnovers and not enough help in the stores. They take advantage of the salaried managers and didn't care about it. Didn't get compensated for extra hours, they just worked you like a dog.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so judgemental

    I worked at Citi Trends full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was an upgrade of pay from the previous company I worked for and to move up from within the company was a breeze, just know your work, apply and constantly show.

    Cons

    I was constantly on the defense of proving myself and my worth and everything thrown at me I accomplished well but it was a lot of personal issues within the company that I grew very tired of that wasn't able to be fixed because of who know/knew who within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job by the book correctly not just as what you think is fit for every situation.

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros!!!

    Cons

    I worked at two locations. The second location. Bradenton, FL. Is by far the worst place I've ever worked. One of the assistant managers is super rude and has a control complex. She always has a rude deminer and hardly ever has a smile on her face. She has an issue with employees using the restroom and when she finally deems it ok, she times you. And if you're the main cashier and need help because you get busy up front don't expect her to help. It will take about 5 or 6 times of calling her and a customer getting her attention for her to finally decide she feels it's time to help. If you tell her that you were calling for help she will just laugh.
    How this company allows this kind of behavior from management is baffling.

    Pros

    Well, the brands are pretty cool and the fact that it is cheap to shop there. it's a good for a second job under 20 hours a week.

    Cons

    At my store, there were Lazy people. Pay sucks and the customer are rude. There is no discount what so ever. Also, there will be times when my store manager will not show up. There is no chance for advancement. Way under staff and when it gets busy, there is not enough employees to help everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and treat them like Humans!

    Pros

    You can be promoted VERY easily and QUICKLY...DUE to HIGH turnover rate within the company!!

    Cons

    Being SO many different titles at one time, loss prevention, customer service rep. freight processor etc. and the policy on alot of things is just unrealistic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
