    Pros

    Laid back and super slow in most areas.

    Cons

    - Applying - DM lies about plans. Just needs people to fill positions. - Managers open store at almost 12 noon, then eat, then start work and never get fired by DM and DM knows. - Workers are lazy. Management lazier than associates. - Store is always a mess - DM allows customers and employees to shop during extreme conditions in store including hazardous areas and liquids that could contaminate/harm everyone. - DM and SM came to work while having COVID And didn’t warn anyone. - Customers are the worst honestly. - Literally cannot afford to live off of this job. - No room for improvement. Only promote if a person leaves. - Management too cliquey and call out almost every weekend. - Upper management doesn’t train everyone but expects employees to know everything. - Cheapest looking clothes ever might as well be rainbow or the thrift store. - No gas reimbursement especially after being promised. - Management has no manners and talks to people like their own child/children. - Shipment comes late in the day or week. - Store moves always happen late in the week. - No coverage. You will work a double without a bathroom break or lunch break. - A lot of racism from customers. - Unsafe environment in certain locations. - Toxic environment nothing but gossip the minute you walk in the door. - No cell phone policy but the DM is on it 24/7 for personal use as well. - No drinks on counter but the DM drinks at the counter. - Favoritism.

    Subjective, Mainly

    Aug 20, 2022 - Sales Associate 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I honestly don’t understand when people say the pay is poor, perhaps that was a consequence of the previous management before it’s big closedown. That aside, the pay is good. Better than almost all adjacent retail places near me, and simultaneously I’m given my desired hours.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT. It’s a bit iffy right now, but it’s undeniably erratic. That could just be my branch though. It’s extremely fast paced, moreso than other retail places. I’ll say it, if you can’t be on your feet for LONG periods of time, don’t work here. It’s a secure floor and you’ll never have nothing to do a la Abercrombie and Fitch.
