    Not what it's expected to be

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Valley Stream, NY

    ProsYou get paid every week, great customer service experience for your resume, discounts, opens you up to a lot of information with different clothing brands and appliances.

    ConsPretty low salary for a billion dollar corporation, A lot of favoritism, no progression for seniority employees, Not too many hours, could be an unfair work environment

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise salary and improve on progression

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Team work doesn't always make the dream work.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Valley Stream, NY

    ProsI loved the people I worked with. As a sales associate you learn a multiple amount of customer service techniques. The discounts offered on the employee website for cellphone bills, Broadway shows, rental cars, etc.

    ConsOutrageous sales goals, not enough associates working on sales days, too much responsibility for a sales associate, low pay, low raises. Too much competition when it comes to picking up hours. Attendance system is questionable and possibly illegal???

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers are too dependent on Associates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Learned a lot only working there for 4 months, relaxed environment for me

    Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee)
    Valley Stream, NY

    Prosa lot of the managers are nice, just do what you have to at work and you will have no problems

    ConsIts retail so customers are always going to be rude at times, retail jobs are extremely boring

    Advice to Senior Managementhave a better hiring process, Stop having people wait 10 weeks before they know if they are hired or not. People don't want to wait 3 weeks for interview process and then another 2 weeks just to know if they have the job. Also I was told i would have a second interview but never got a call back, i called back every other day and still got the same run around.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
