I have been working at Cato full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Working with your staff and interacting with customers

Cons

The company is always pushing you to do more without meeting you half way with a decent salary. Corporate comes up with ideas that takes away from us... Loss prevention issues and customer service. We work on 2 person coverage with a nice sized store but we are to harass customers by pushing product on them all while greeting within 15 sec, helping customers who need help. For eight dollars an hr for mgmt

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop coming up with these stupid ideas for sales etc. When we push customers they don't like it and half bring the merchandise back. Listen to us that work in the stores. Not someone who hasn't work in a store for ages. Your ground people have insight, not corporate

    I worked at Cato part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers in management, decent employee discount, rewarded for good performance from mystery shopping reviews, when promoting they put more weight with current employees before looking outside the company

    Cons

    Low pay based on experience, rigid scheduling requiring large lead time for requests for time off, high theft rate and little empowerment to stop it, some customers can be rather rude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know store locations to better cater to local shoppers
