Pros

Great Sales Associates
If you enjoy customer interaction this will be a great job for you
Discount insensitives are good

Cons

The pay does not equal the amount of work you put in, they will work you until you want to quit for as little pay as they can get. It is hard to work for this company if you have a family as the hours are crazy and you will definitely be pulling some overnights. Very little upward mobility.

Advice to Management

I would advise management to be more aware of their employees moral and overall health. While this is a discount retailer sometimes you need to focus more on the customers than the money as in the long term you will gain more income.

    Pros

    Depending on the store there are great customers and great fellow employees.

    Cons

    Company is clueless as what it takes to train and keep employees. Expected to have no life and drop everything for TCP. Pay more to new hires than promotes. Very un-organized, send through info at the last minute and expect you to drop everything and get it done then with no additional payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overhauling the stores and consider starting with a management change, at the very top!

    Pros

    Team environment on store level.
    Salary and bonus.

    Cons

    Payroll cut hugely in comparison to last year's budgets. An outlet store cannot run on 2 person coverage. Customers are leaving because they don't want to wait in the long line. Shoplifting is increasing because theives are discovering the lack of coverage. Impossible to do floorset, markdowns, process shipment, provide excellent service, LP awareness on 2 person coverage. Qaulity staff leaves due to lack of hours. Current DSM is unprofessional and rude. Direct quotes include "this store is disgusting", "that's the worst display I've ever seen ", "I hate it", "when you don't make sales plan, it is like taking food out of my child's mouth."

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you want to be treated.

    Stop with the favoritism.

    Stop micro-managing.

    Stop cutting payroll budgets. You are actually losing money in doing so.

    Start acknowledging for a job well done.

    Don't allow professional bullying to take place.
