      I worked at Century 21 Department Stores part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great managers and co workers. Fun activities to lighten up the work day (ice cream day, taco day, ugly sweater contest, etc).

      Cons

      Sometimes management tends to favor or cater to customer demands. It's a little annoying, but it's retail so you deal.

It's basically a way for management to fire people due to being human. This holiday season was harsh, the cold affected my health constantly and I would always come into work anyway out of fear of being terminated for points. There was no way for the points to...

      Advice to Management

      Take care of your employees! Give them proper schedules. Remove the point system. My managers made my job so much fun and loving and I would have worked there forever if I could. It was the best job I ever had but because I was working full time hours as a part timer, my health could not keep up with their needs.
