Pros

Interesting co workers. Every other aspect was a con.

Cons

gracious return policy, customer's returned 40% on average in my department. I average person can not be compensated accordingly. they would garnish wages if you did not sell the draw in 2weeks. Upper Management had an agenda- wanted to skim corners with staff. the place was chaotic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The HR department is not an advocate for their employees. After I left they fired five of 9 department managers in 6 months. Replacing them with inexperienced selling managers making half the salary.

    Former Employee - Assistant Site Merchandiser in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    In my position, I worked with many different areas of the company so I learned a lot about how e-commerce sites work. Vacation and sick time was great.

    Cons

    I did not find a lot of support with career development. Also, a lot of the policies were not standard across the board. Some teams got certain perks which didn't seem fair to everyone else. The salary is also not as competitive as you would find in similar positions at competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more training involved when you are first hired as well as more training as things change. Also, there should be more emphasis on career development.

    Pros

    Still not a bad choice, if you must be in retail.

    Cons

    Expense cuts have taken a toll. Decline in quality of personnel, inventory, opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics, positioning, and defensiveness. More support, communication, and inclusiveness.
