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

Pros

Situated in great small population markets. Customers are great. Staff in store is great.

Cons

Pressure to do more with less staff. Customers complain continually about not staffing the sales floor. "I can never find a clerk". Unrealistic expectations from corporate officers to accomplish tasks with no staff. Low pay offerings for new hires limits the quality of applicants.

Advice to Management

Work a month in a store to see if what you expect is possible.

    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time

    Pros

    Great discount. You receive 20% off almost all merchandise right away when you start, and after a year of service your discount goes to 25%. There are coupons that can be combined with you discount as well so you can get some really great deals. Most of the time it is a fun environment.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Stores are open until 10 pm on Friday and Saturday. Customers expect the impossible and try to take advantage of sales associates for the best deals. Scheduling is very unreliable. Hard to have a work/life balance or family if you want to work full time.
