    Flexible schedule, awesome boss, amazing co-workers

    If you're going to make your employees work mandatory holidays, the least you could do is pay them time and a half for the time away from their families.

    Pros

    Some of the best managers, Laura Especially. Pretty easy work and a decent amount of hours.

    Cons

    Be prepared to make minimum wage and never get a raise. Corporate is horrible to employees. No room for advancement but great for a college job.

    I have been working at Dunham's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. There isn't much drama between the sales associates and some key holders. It is a great place to be in if upper management is not present.

    Cons

    The upper management of this company is absolutely terrible. They look down on all of their employees as if they are garbage. If you are working during the time that a district manager (or higher) is present, then good luck even getting them to look in your direction.
    The pay scale is also very unfair. There are people at my store that have been there for over two years and are making less than someone who has been there for a only a few months.
    Dunham's also has a sexist environment. I'm not sure if this at more than just my store, but I imagine it would be. All of the females are always forced to be on register while the males get to hangout in the back and mess around. It takes a lot for the ladies to even get to use the restroom, let alone get some time off of their feet. This partly may be due to the fact that my gm doesn't care for women too much. He is very rude to the ladies and will act bothered if one tries to speak to him.
    Overall, this job is not one to keep for a long period of time or if at all. There are plenty of other employers that will appreciate their employees a lot more than Dunham's does.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees with some respect. We are not beneath you. We are mostly young college students that are working to better ourselves.

    Cons

    Poor communication at all levels, Haphazard decisions regarding promotions leading to poorly trained management, Minimum pay scale at all levels, Employees are merely warm bodies, Employee training is poor at best, Payroll at each location is at absolute minimum leaving stores consistently understaffed.
