      Good benefits, less drama

      Pros

      Offices tend to have drama and at least at this store, you go in and work, then leave. There’s also amazing discounts on clothes.

      Cons

      Any retail job has to prioritize getting credit cards or rewards program sign ups, and it’s difficult to do if you’re uncomfortable pushing people.

      Pros

      Coworkers were nice The 30% off discount We used an app to request days off, pick up extra shifts, and swap shifts. It was very convenient.

      Cons

      Cared way too much about getting people to apply for credit cards. Perhaps people will look at it as favoritism but if you're really good in a certain department you stay in that department and rarely get placed elsewhere. The people that were really good at getting cards almost always stayed being a cashier and others wouldn't really get an opportunity to get a chance at the cash register because of that. They were always on you about getting people to sign up to the rewards program as well. Working graveyard shifts. They'll tell you its forbidden to talk about your wage with other coworkers and you'll realize that its because not everyone gets paid the same. Sad truth. Cut hours to give to their favorites

      Pros

      the pay wasn’t bad and they gave you a raise every year. The people who worked there were nice.

      Cons

      Didn’t give a lot of hours. I would get 3 hour shifts so they wouldn’t give me a break. You had to push the credit card which was troublesome.

      You can really only be part time unless your a manager then your full time but as a part time worker you have to work full time hours. They only care about their sales goals for that day not and credit cards

      Pros

      Compounded company discount. Nothing more.

      Cons

      Where shall I start? 1. Schedules are inconsistent; for example I had several shifts in which I was set to work 4 hours with an extra 6 hours 'on call' built in only to be sent home in my 2nd hour because we the numbers 2. pushing BR Credit Cards feels so sloppy, and yet the managers hold it over you. Quota, quota 3. For my training to learn the cash register, we were told to dress up and to be on our A game. Because they had their own logistic issues, since we were on the clock they had us do cleaning tasks. Guess who got to spray and wipe the windows down with Windex in a full fitted suit?

      Pros

      The discount is unbeatable! There is also always something to do, so being at work never becomes dull. Managers always want to help you succeed.

      Cons

      Scheduling is not consistent. Getting the hours you want doesn't always work out. Push credit card too much with a lousy reward system.
