    you train yourself for the most part unless if you have a good manager or other sales associate. But its not the hardest thing to be honest. pretty much common sense

    Their training isn't very thorough, they teach you to do super basic things like folding and clipping the security tags onto clothes. Other than that I asked how their register works, etc, and was never taught how to do more advanced things because only the managers usually do them.

    On my first day, I was just kind of thrown into tasks without any sort of training whatsoever, which was kind of stressful considering it was my first retail job. We were in the process of training a new store manager at the time, so training for new employees was sort of overlooked. Thankfully other sales associates helped me out, and as the new manager got a lay of the land, he was able to help me and the other new employees a lot more.

    The training was simple and straightforward. It took me a couple months but after everything I was confident in that I knew what I was doing. So much so that I was promoted

    Really disorganized and none of the other workers follow what we're taught on the job training.

    Most of the job is on the job training. First two weeks of training is with another manager after that you are on your own

    0 support hours, you're basically thrown in the fire.

    Very easy and quick! they will talk you through some things as well as show you booklets on items they have in the store and run through possible scenarios of what could happen on a daily basis. As well as in store training where you will watch follow and watch them deal with customers.

    There's no decent training on safety, selling, or business. You're basically given a day to learn the "essentials" and then thrown into the job. Even things like floorset operations you have to figure out on your own. Needs lots of work.
