    Pros

    Calvin Klein has great employee discounts and great customers, you're never bored and will always be given something to do

    Cons

    The hours are very fluctuating, some weeks you'll have only 1 day of work for 4 hours and some they will over work you. You never have steady pay and if you choose open availability they will basically tell you work overnight or your fired.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay better and have some sort of raises! Also please show you care about employees situations
