    All Depends On Your Store Manager...

    Apr 3, 2018 - Store Associate in Tullahoma, TN
    Recommend

    Pros

    decent pay for retail, easy to work as a side job, not a very big store

    Cons

    all depends on who your manager is. mine would come out with schedules 2 days in advance and had everyone except managers in the system as contract so they would not get benefits. very understaffed when needed. ALSO- the biggest part of your job is signing people up for one cards, and while it didnt effect me, if you dont get a lot of people your hours are cut.

    You will never get over 20 hours a week.

    Pros

    Discount on clothes, very easy job, some coworkers will actually help and want to work but not all.

    Cons

    No benefits because you can never get over 20 hours. Some of the management think they are above doing their jobs and load everything on the associates. A lot of the associates like to hide and act busy when the front end at the registers get busy, leaving one person to handle everything. And you have to wear a red shirt every single day with black or tan pants. They want you to also wear black shoes. But all the supervisors can wear whatever they please. They can wear tennis shoes of any color or capri's. Just whatever they wish while you get a discount on nice business attire but can't wear any of it at work. If you are looking for a job I would say keep looking. Most people don't stay here long enough to remember their names.

    Awful Pay

    Aug 19, 2022 - Associate in Saraland, AL

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    My manager was great about working with my schedule (family first for me) and didn't make me work nights or weekends. I was offered a supervisor position after being on the job for only 6 months. 20% employee discount, with certain days of the year being 'double discount' days.

    Cons

    Pay was awful at $8/hr even though I have several years of experience in retail. Even when being promoted to supervisor, I still made less than I do now working at a fast food restaurant. Supervisor pay was only $10/hr and no benefits. Registers were constantly messing up, system was going offline all the time, and the store intercoms seldomly worked.

    Pros

    Employee discount, great work environment, learned a lot from my store, district, and regional managers. Everyone is willing to help if you're willing to do the job.

    Cons

    Not a great work/home balance but that's any job in retail.

    Pros

    The manager is very flexible and understanding when it comes to working around anyone's life schedules or another job schedule. Of course the employee discount was one of the top best reason's to work at Burkes Outlets.

    Cons

    Only being allowed to have 1 or 2 days off throughout the week, and only being given 15 minute breaks after working an 8 hr shift. 30 minutes to 1hr is the min and max for an 8hr shift.
