    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Sales Associate 

      I worked at Carson's part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The people who worked at Carson's were all relatively friendly and easy to work with.

      Cons

      Schedules/shifts were sometimes very difficult. I was only a part time associate but sometimes they would have me on the schedule for 40+ hours so I had to go to management almost every week for them to change it.
