A good "for now" job

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

Pros- Great associate discounts (30% off, new quarter weekends give us 45% off)
- Good upbeat music
- Friendly co-workers and generally friendly managers
- Fashionable store, love the style
- Love the creativity I can put into my work outfits
- 5 hour shifts... better than other retail places with 3 or 4 hr shifts

Cons- Pressure to meet goals to "go green" and extreme pressure for the Express Credit Card
- No recognition for doing a good job, but a lot of criticism for things you do wrong
- BAD HOURS. Despite the 5 hour shifts, you'll probably only work one or two days out of the week. Many associates have second jobs because of this.
- Many on-call hours, which they don't even use 99% of the time.
- Managers play favorites.
- Bad pay and bad hours for such expensive clothes.
- No discount on red tag items.

Advice to Senior Managementrid the on-call hours and have better training for new associates. I didn't really know how to "sell" until a new quarter meeting where an old associate helped me with how to sell and add on

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
