I have been working at Bon-Ton Stores part-time (More than a year)

Pros

The managers would listen to my suggestions and even implement some. They worked around my school schedule and even hired me back over the holiday season.

Cons

Some of the other sales associates would not follow rules which would make my job harder. They would make their 15 minute break a 30 minute break.

Advice to Management

Enforce sales associate break times. When someone takes a longer break it affects everyone.

    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People within your team are generally helpful and camaraderie is built quickly around your common suffering. Outside of the few friends made there, there isn't much decent to say about the place.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The work environment is rather laid back because there isn't much direction; most days no one knows what you do if you do anything at all. If you don't want to learn or grow your career or knowledge, this is the place to be. I honestly feel stupider for having worked there. In over 5 years I was given a cumulative total of a 3% raise which was high for my department. The work environment is dirty and unkept, there is way too much middle management and none of them care about anything except themselves. We were subjected to 3 layoffs in my 5 year employment period (all of which I survived) and created a constant fear of not having a job at any given point and cultivated a feeling of apathy towards the success of the ompany There are constant bad monetary decisions made which had many of us puzzled as to how the company remained in business for so long. My title says it all; avoid this place like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    People have talent and aren't expendable. Invest in your employees, allow them to grow and listen to their ideas. Giving people some value will in turn increase the value of the company. If you don't, you'll need to hire a band cause that's the only difference between the Bonton and the Titanic.

    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CO-Workers the people you work with are like your second family and long time friends for life thats the best part of the job to work with friends and family

    Cons

    The Management doesn't appreciate you or your hard work and dedication your just a number once your salary is capped your time is slowly up its just a matter of time till they can find someone to take your place and that's the sad part of all retail stores unfortunately

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your long term dedicated employees more not just with a pat on the back but show them in the year end review and you just might see more people stay
