I have been working at Bon-Ton Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Flexible scheduling, Family atmosphere, Great Discount

Cons

Coupons are crazy to decipher and you feel like your going to get fired if you apply them incorrectly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give better training on the promotions and coupons to new workers. The customers are confused and so are we, but we have to be able to give a professional explanation of the promotions.

    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time

    Pros

    Great discount. You receive 20% off almost all merchandise right away when you start, and after a year of service your discount goes to 25%. There are coupons that can be combined with you discount as well so you can get some really great deals. Most of the time it is a fun environment.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Stores are open until 10 pm on Friday and Saturday. Customers expect the impossible and try to take advantage of sales associates for the best deals. Scheduling is very unreliable. Hard to have a work/life balance or family if you want to work full time.

    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Situated in great small population markets. Customers are great. Staff in store is great.

    Cons

    Pressure to do more with less staff. Customers complain continually about not staffing the sales floor. "I can never find a clerk". Unrealistic expectations from corporate officers to accomplish tasks with no staff. Low pay offerings for new hires limits the quality of applicants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work a month in a store to see if what you expect is possible.
