Unorganized but fun

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Lexington-Fayette, KY

ProsThe people are all nice, Its fun if you like working with children, My manager was very flexible with hours and days you needed off

ConsSchedules are put out late and can change a lot, sometimes you only work like 5 hours a week because of too many employees, the shipments are large and hard to keep organized in the tiny back room and you are sometimes expected to put out 40 boxes of clothes in one day, the lp manager and regional manager don't seem to trust their staff, a lot of shoplifters come in

Advice to Senior ManagementHire sales leads from people that work in the store instead of hiring someone that has less experience and does not know what they are doing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
