    I worked at Dots part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The store managers are well trained and helpful they also train the associates properly. The experience created for the customer was personalized to fit her needs.

    Cons

    Never enough coverage, never had a proper break, customers took advantage of return policy and returned worn and damaged items regularly.The pay was so low, couldn't earn enough to cover expenses.

    Advice to Management

    The district managers should be more hands on or get a reduced salary.they don't do much of anything.

    Pros

    Training you receive as a tsm is thorough and health benefits were excellent. The techniques they teach you about loss prevention are beneficial.

    Cons

    The company doesn't utilize thier payroll correctly. They need to schedule enough coverage so that employees can take actual put of store breaks.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives and in store contests would drive better sales productivity amongst sales associates.
