Nice Environment but Little Room for Growth

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsChill co-workers and managers (which is rare)
50% off discount for all clothing
2 seasonal clothing allowances
Little responsibility and workload except for competing with other SAs for personal Dollar per Hour sales quota

ConsSAs and Cashiers steal sales
Little room for growth, though it is very often that a SA gets promoted to a keyholder, but job functions remain similarly mundane

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
