Drama Central for Low pay

Third Keyholder (Current Employee)

ProsGood discount, interesting clientele, good training on ear piercings.

ConsPay is awful. & It's a predominantly female population, with a lot of female drama. I don't think there's been a day where I've worked with one person to listen to them complain about another. There's a lot of politics that comes with the job in house. If you have good management, then your work-life balance can be awesome but at the same time they may completely ignore you for hours in the future. I've gone two weeks where I literally only worked 4 hours. Also, none of the product really changes and visual merchandising can be super easy or really tedious, like I said: depends on management. Also, when I say management I don't mean management to include third keys and the ASM. Just the actual manager & the DSM.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your managers more, and don't have so many in one store. There needs to be more sales associates.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
