Not bad for being retail

Merchandise Coordinator (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

Pros-Great coworkers, have made friends here
-Management is helpful and listens to feedback
-Schedule is flexible, they work with your availability
-Always something to do, never bored
-Never have to work too late, we close at 9:30pm and are usually out by 10:00
-Yearly raises, not huge increases in pay but a considerable amount
-Paid weekly
-Parties are thrown often for good customer feedback and reaching sales goals
-Promote from within the company

Cons-Store manager is hardly there which is both good and bad. Employees prefer the assistant managers. They are much nicer/laid back.
-Not paid enough for the amount of work they expect of you
-Customers continuously wreck the store and ask for discounts on most merchandise
-Full time isn't really full time. I usually accumulate about 32-37 hours a week
-Part time employees come and go, people tend to not stick around
-Store manager and assistant managers do not communicate very well to one another
-Push store credit cards

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure employees feel as comfortable with store managers as they do the assistant managers. I understand that someone of more authority is going to be a little more intimidating, but being belittled and talked down to by your employer is unacceptable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
