    I worked at Carson's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    got to pick my hours
    easy interview
    friendly coworkers
    easy job

    Cons

    customers can be rude but that happens at every retail job

    Advice to Management

    Don't pressure people to reach sales when it's out of our control. We can't get sales when its a slow day and there are few customers in the store

    Visual Merchandising Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Merrillville, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carson's (Merrillville, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Schedules for an interview when the job was already filled so that they could toss me into a group interview for floor clothing folders. Most of the offers were for part time even though they all say full time. Description of job title is not what your actually being paid for. Very disappointed.
