    I have been working at Forman Mills part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    nice clothes, discount on clothes, clothes are pretty cheap, pretty easy and straight forward, other associates I work are pretty cool people.

    Cons

    No personal growth, certain managers are rude, ghetto customers, not that much of a balance between work and life, have to call in to figure your schedule out for the next week every Saturday so you have to plan your personal life around the schedule,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to be organized and run the store better.

    Pros

    Great people
    Challenging job
    Lots of ways to make improvements

    Cons

    RF is seldom in office but if he comes in he is abrasive and belittling to staff.
    Meetings can result in your items being thrown at you while you are screamed at.
    Interest in improvements or any real changes in any area is all talk. RF likes the way his company currently runs and has no intention of changing it. It's all talk and bluster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appoint someone to run the company and take yourself out of the picture. You'll make more money and keep employees longer if you stay out of it.

    Pros

    Close proximity to my home.

    Cons

    Basically everything about Forman Mills is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I worked at Forman Mills I was a Customer Service employee. There were only three of us in that position which meant that there were long hard hours and lots of angry customers! On any given day I would have a line as long as an aisle and no one in management wanted to even attempt to help me. There was no security in the store and on multiple occasions grown men tried to come behind my counter and try to physically harm me (I am a 22 year old female), the only people who tried to help me were the other cashiers. The cops had to be called about four times a week just to get things under control. One day Rick Forman, the man who owns the company, said he was coming to make a visit so I ended up working a 12 hour shift and HE NEVER EVEN SHOWED UP!

    Pros

    I love the customers and enjoy helping them.

    Cons

    Management has NO respect for employees at all. Management discusses employees absences, tardys, or write ups with all other employees which is not only against the law but embarrassing. No consideration for employees at all. During holidays we are not allowed to request days off and if we call off its automatic termination. Pay is very lousy, most of the time our hours dont meet minimum standards. No holiday pay at all. After breaking our backs during holiday season sometimes working from 9am until 1230 pm all we got in appreciation was a lousey 10 dollar coupon for a butterball turkey. Ive called corporate offices a few times to complain about things and NOTHING has been done or changed at all. RF forman/ceo does NOT know how to treat his employess. And if complaints or advice does make it to him he does a very poor job of dealing w or handeling them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. Follow the hippa laws and stop gossiping. Your not better than anyone else.

    I have been working at Forman Mills

    Pros

    There are none at all

    Cons

    dealing with a bunch of rude unless people. The owner is a slave driver who suffers from multiple personality disorder and never cares what he says or does to anyone. No cares at all from upper management just want you to shut up and do your job. You will have to waste your whole holiday season working at the store 6 days a week because the owner does not care about you or your family just wants to squeeze every drop of blood out of you he can. No compensation for working long hours and weekends. It's 21st Century and this company still pushed pen and paper. Too many people as like there the boss of everyone when they are not. Forget about you family there is no work/ home live at Forman Mills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    first of all lean how to speak to people like a human Learn that you not everyone's boss.

    Pros

    half off everything in the store
    20 percent off for your family and you; only for employees. $10 for thanksgiving buffet and 10 certificate for food; and they give you back the ten dollars if there's not enough people at the buffet. Don't have to change your job when you get the promotion in the breakroom. Thanksgiving day off; christmas off and new years eve off. For the processing: all you have to do is takw the clothes out of the box and put the labels on them and make labels if theres no plastic to use the ticket gun for and shoot by stabbing the needle into clothes and shooting it and hang it up and take it to the department store in forman mills.

    Cons

    8.25 an hour and get paid biweekly. You have to buy the red shirt and baige pants. They give you the work ID which is the only thing free. They started cutting days and hours from me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
