    Ridiculous

    Nov 6, 2014 - Ann Taylor LOFT Sales Associate in Glendale, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some nice people to work with, generous discount, do not have to wear AT or LOFT clothes.

    Cons

    I have to assume that because the merchandise is on sale so often and for so much, that that is the reason the companies pay is poor and why they expect so much work done for so little. The store I worked at should have at least four full time managers plus a f/t key holder or two and a part time stock room person-But that will never happen because they want everyone to do everything as fast as possible for as little as possible. POS systems are antiquated, store computer was ridiculous. Get scheduled for one or two shifts a week then called two or three times a week to see if you would come in ASAP to take on a shift or process shipment. Also you are scheduled only one week out at a time(technically the Wednesday before the start of the schedule week which is Sunday). As an employee your check is mailed to you unless you have direct deposit, and if you want to see or actually have your pay stub, good luck getting it. If you work here, enjoy customers who can't do the math on what 1/2 off 29.50 is, who try on half of the store in the dressing room, leaving all if in the dressing room for you to pick up while they buy that one $10 top. And when you are on your break or lunch, it is normal for you to be called out onto the floor to help out. You are hired, not to sell clothes, but to sell a credit card. It is not about fashion or finding a customer a good fit but about selling massive amounts of clothes and as many cards as possible. And you are basically picking up after cheap customers. Basically no different than H&M or Forever 21. There is little worth investing in this company for. Do not look at it for long term, stable money/employment- even if part time. Keep looking for other work, even if it is another retail company.

    Pros

    Good Discount and medical benefits

    Cons

    Store manager has a lot to do beyond available to complete in a timely manner. Expectations are high and payroll does not allow for adequate staffing both in scheduling and for attracting and retaining top talent. Company speaks to supporting a work / life balance, but as a store manager the work load does not allow that.
