    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cato part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Cato's It's Fashion Metro store was the team I worked with. I had flexible hours and a great support team. customers are great and the discount helps!

    Cons

    The pay is minimal, even for management. The weekly SUNDAY markdown process is ridiculous and always understaffed. Raises are about $.05 to $.10 a year (maybe) and split between staff members!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more responsible staff, schedule appropriately, and stand your ground with DMs. They are usually too far removed to know how inefficient the processes are.
