It iss very detailed oriented and you get the opportunity to aske lots and lots of questions.
Great training at first but then once put into a new role, not great training at all
Training on the basics of everything. Cashier, merchandising and markdowns then you learn on your own as you go or if your coworkers teach you. Training should improve.
This is probably going to be the only time that you recieve a decent amount of hours for the week.
they basically trough you after seeing a couple videos about customer interaction
They will tell you how to do stuff, you are given a few hours to shadow someone, and then they throw you right it and you get right to it, hopefully without messing anything up. It's easy work, though. It has it's nuances, but these are not complicated.
This benefit is very helpful to me because it helps me out with lots of things important to me.
they do not really train you. they give you a tote of things and say stock the shelves. if you need help ask this person who is no where to be found
They need to train the trainers on what to train the new hires. Trainers are told to teach the specific job policy and procedure but are later held accountable for not training general policy and procedures - which is supposed to be covered in orientation anyways. One trainer got criticized by management for not telling a new hire to stop and have bags searched when leaving. Fortunately an coordinator stepped in and told the manager that the new hire had stopped to have bags searched. But the point is that the trainer was smart enough to tell the new hire that policy, the manager didn't apologize to the trainer for publicly taking him to task, and the search bags procedure is still not told in orientation. o
The entire organization runs on the fear of retail associates who happen to be either recent immigrants or people desperate for money to exist. This is probably the best training I have ever received.
