    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Salt Lake City, UT

    Pros

    -paid relatively well for position
    -good discount

    Cons

    -expected to skip lunches and breaks

    -hired two weeks later then initially promised

    -expected to work longer then scheduled hours

    -initially paid with a strange company debit card that charged you to perform basic actions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rename warehouse position to something less misleading

    hire based on skill at basic warehouse tasks (unloading/loading merchandise) not customer service skill

    schedule me the actual amount of hours you want me to work

    good company with alot of advancement opportunity, meetings and events for employees.

    It's retail, and generally retail is not very fun, complaining customers and some organization issues. A raise is few and far between.
