Great pay, but employees under-appreciated

I have been working at Cato

Pros

Small shop, so high-profile work in most cases.

Cons

Co-workers and management not willing to share information and communicate to improve. CEO runs no debt business, which is smart during economy downturns, but company is not family friendly and upper management not approachable for new ideas and suggestions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication must improve and relationship between middle management must improve. Too much back-stabbing and politics to enjoy working there.

    Pros

    I have met many friendly customers.

    Cons

    The manager is very young and tends to schedule herself off on many weekends and evenings. After one year of employment, I was given a $.10an hour raise and the 1st Asst. Mgr. received only a $.15 an hour raise. We were the only 2 to receieve anything and Cato only gives hourly associates a raise once a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't show your employees respect and appreciation for their hard work, you can expect a very high turnover in staff. Your sales associates are your communication to your customers.
