Cutting costs by asking employees to do janitorial work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsYoung managers, fun, patient with instruction and dedicated, happy in their roles. The dayforce software is fairly good at allowing you to see your schedule and set availability.

ConsEmployees are asked to vacuum dressing rooms, dust, take out garbage. The eating area is tiny and unclean, dirty rug and a huge trash can near where you eat. There is rigorous oversight of clocking in /out. You can only clock in 3 minutes before your shift. Our hours are frequently cut.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet sales associates work with customers and ring up the customer to close the sale and build relationships. There's no incentive to work harder if you sell merchandise and then can't get credit for the sale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
