    A flexible part-time job while in school

    Cashier/Floorworker (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    Prosflexible schedule, down to earth management, sweet 30% discount, unique clientele, first to see things go out on the floor

    Consrelatively low pay, corporal management

    Advice to Senior ManagementI did not feel that the corporal management really cared about the store employees but the store managers were very helpful and friendly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not exactly Club Med

    Sales (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsThe steady work, and full-time retail is hard to find anywhere else. What the company stands for (their explicit policies) and the customers who come to shop are admirable.

    ConsFavoritism to management. They sit in their offices and work their employees like slaves. Management does not allow trainees to rest in downtime, nor even sit when they fold and organize what's on the bottom shelves. Caesar Chavez banned the short hoe because it led to too many workplace injuries in harvesting crops. Thrift Town hasn't got the message, apparently. The back room workers also complain of being worked too hard. The object is apparently to get them to quit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake your workplace policies reflect the noble mission statement you say is company policies. You'll lose the best employees to stores that actually respect them in action, rather than merely in words.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Thrift Town

    Cashier (Former Employee)

    ProsThe variety of duties within your assigned position. Constantly staying busy. Being able to float between Sales floor and Back room production duties. Being able to crosstrain allowed better knowledge of store operations and understanding of how each employee can best be utilized.

    ConsPay. The pay is minimum wage to start then at the 1 yr. mark, if the employee hasnt given up and is still there , they get a pay raise. Small payraise. The pay is not based on performance or even other comparible jobs in the same market. Corporate policies and lack of importance towards employees. The attitude and treatment from the corporate level regarding employees is "They come and go". It seems to me that if a position of "Manager" or "Director" is a persons title they should have control in a termination decision due to being in direct contact with that employee and aware of their work ethics and dedication to the company instead of having to follow "corporate policy" and releasing a proven good employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the employee, their work performance, dedication, and any feedback from customers as well as fellow employees or supervisors when making decisions regarding that individuals employment status. Allow decisions to be made at a local management level. It is more cost effective to work with a good existing employee than to train and allow for the learning time mistakes and possibly costing the company customers and/or money, which both are the main goal of the company.

    Thrifttown? I wouldn't ever work there again..

    Floor/Cashier (Former Employee)

    Pros40 hours weekly, health/dental/eye benefits after 6 months, bonuses for achieving goal for day

    ConsRude/uncaring management didn't know management, understaffed/overworked don't get paid enough for how much they want you to work

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire enough people to properly run a store and give raises to people who deserve it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
