Former Employee - Department Manager  in  Arlington, VA
Former Employee - Department Manager in Arlington, VA

Pros

Easy work, rather simple to adjust schedule to your liking.

Cons

Idiotic "Sales goals." IE sell X amount of goods for the day and you get graded on your production. Makes the workplace unnecessarily competitive for retail. Also pressured by management to open credit card accounts, even if utilizing underhanded tactics. No chain of command to report issues to, HR is a joke. A lot of internacine politics. Quality of work doesn't matter when it comes to promotion, sleep with the store manager and you're good to go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop basing promotions based on who you sleep with.

    Current Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Baton Rouge, LA

    Pros

    Flexible schedule; ability to give away shifts or call out online; closing and opening only take 15 minutes each

    Cons

    Can be hard to get hours if you're not full time; pressure to open credit cards for customers; the "score card" that affects pay raises is unreasonable (for instance, have to get 166% of your sales goal to get credit for it. why is there even a goal if you have to get that much over 100%?)
