    I worked at DSW part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -the employee discount -the coworkers -allowed to work completely in the stock room during store hours -some shifts are quick and simple

    Cons

    -the customers who treat you like a personal shopper -a warehouse associate is expected to do their job and a sales associate's job at times, you tend to be overworked sometimes -my store received shipment at 5am every weekday and it was hard to come to work and do those hours -would ask for the weekend off, weeks in advance, and would still be scheduled. felt disrespectful to me as a person and my time
