    Cons

    Never leave on time come in at 7am get off at 10pm you may get a 30min lunch if you are lucky.
     Up managment changes mind 30 times a day then screams at you like a 5 year old.
     Over worked under paid.
    No personnal life.
     Makes you come in on days off ever if you already have plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure up managment are trained and are following company guide lines.Make sure that everyone from the top of the chain to the bottom of the chain is on the same page from the start and not changing there mind 30 times a day. Hire the right people for the job.

    Absolutely, the most stressful, unorganized, forever changing place to work.

    Pros

    Hours are pretty good.
    Discount is amazing!
    Great place to earn retail experience.
    Merchandise is great.
    Everything is easy to learn.

    Cons

    On-call shifts leave you with no personal life.
    Overwork you. Manager will ask you to do an open-close shift, but won't do one herself.
    Pay sucks for how much work you're actually doing.
    Unnecessarily stressful for it to be a clothing store.
    No type of advancement opportunities or raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see that we're genuinely sick, SEND US HOME. Don't do things that you specifically told sales associates not to do; that's being hypocritical. Train new people better. Sales associates shouldn't be working 12 days straight or be getting called in on their only day off. BRING BACK LAYAWAY. Layaway helped the company a lot IMO. Get pricing guns for markdowns! Stop showing favoritism. If you're going to work/give hours to a sales associate like they're FULL TIME, they should get the benefits. Shouldn't even part time sales associates get benefits?????
