    Empty Promises

    Cash Office Associate (Former Employee) Yonkers, NY

    ProsAs a retail employee, diligence was recognized by most managers and was compensated by flexible schedules and giving responsibility, which added to one's skill set.

    ConsAdditional responsibilities are not compensated. There are a lot of empty promises made by managers and district managers. When promotions are actually given, pay is barely increased. Opportunity to move from retail to corporate is rare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to corporate management would be to stop looking down on your retail workers. Corporate employees often visit stores without acknowledging the retail employees or speaking to them on what can be done to improve the stores. Many employees in my particular district were young, educated individuals with fresh ideas regarding marketing and merchandising. Instead, the corporate offices are full of older males with stale, out of date ideas and trends.

    One of the best companies in Massachusetts.

    Wonderful Time as Shoes Coordinator

    Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee) North Wales, PA

    ProsWorked as the shoes merchandise coordinator in the Airport Square Marshall's. Had a great management team that took a chance on me right out of college. They let me implement ideas to reduce shrink and take chances in managing people. The experience helped me earn other management jobs and gave me something to talk about during interviews.

    Flexible management allowed for a flexible schedule to help give a healthy work/life balance.

    ConsRetail scheduling is kind of a bummer. The schedule is all over the place, days, nights, weekends - it is never consistent. Not management's fault, just the nature of the beast.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be kind to your employees. Airport Square Marshall's has a great atmosphere.
