Tempting perks (discount) with frustrating work experience

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsReally great discount that is valid at Madewell AND J.Crew stores
Friendly work environment
Madewell stores are clean and fresh-looking, and play good music (not too loud to drive you crazy on a long shift)-- fun, youthful vibe

ConsOn-call shifts (won't know if you need to come into work until 2hrs before the shift starts
3 days notice on next week's schedule
low hourly wage
VERY few hours (even as a top associate at the store)

Advice to Senior ManagementNO On-call shifts. Use data to know when you need the most associates, and stick to that.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
