    Pros

    Truly a good company, the heart of the company is in the right place.

    Cons

    Might as well run the building with zero employees and only managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has to give a little, and they will earn twice in return

    Pros

    Great place for first job.

    Cons

    It took me a year to get promoted to senior department head. Then once I started working the position I was treated like an idiot. The store manger is lazy. But me and the assistant managers work our butts off for him to basically get all the praise from corporate. Ugh

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is an advice for corporate. Don't send emails praising the lazy store manager that talks about his associates. & don't pay people different wages. Some people start with 8. Then some start with 7.25. And if you think the associates don't talk m money amongst themselves... You are mistaken.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and fast paced. Always something to keep you busy and creative.

    Low payroll , low pay and no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create another assistant manager position to relieve stress off other managers. Give more hours for payroll.

    I worked at Rugged Wearhouse full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Basic retail, no mannequins, no constant window changes, a lot of opportunity to put special touches on your store such as merchandising (depending who your current dm)

    Cons

    You are treated like crap every other day. The company do not know what direction they are going in. One person say everything is good another say the total opposite (corporate visits) guidelines or very loose but somehow you still get chewed out to much. Freight is always heavy but NOOOO hours to support getting it out until a corporate visit is coming then everybody running around like a chicken with no head. No such thing as confidentiality. Training is very very bad. The main problem is the most controllable expense is payroll and the do not give enough at all 2 mill plus store over 12 sqft daily freight 100plus boxes 188 hours...u figure that out. I don't think corporate know what's really going on in the field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To much

    I have been working at Rugged Wearhouse full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discount is nice. The other employees are very nice and fun to talk to.

    Cons

    There is no training. The hours are terrible. There is no support from management or their superiors. It is like working in high school because everyone talks behind each others back, especially the store manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and do not punish them for being human.

    I have been working at Rugged Wearhouse full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Deals on name brands.

    Cons

    Everything else. I've never worked for a company that finds a way to cheat employees out of needed pay (such as vacation or bereavement) until this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop finding a way to beat employees from needed time off with pay. We bust our butts off for this company, we deserve something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very political view on promotions.
