I worked at Bon-Ton Stores part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You receive an employee discount on most items, and the discount increases the longer you're employed (but not by much). Some shifts can be mindless and stress free when it's slow, and your only job is to make the merchandise look presentable. My hours worked well for my schedule because I had school on weekdays and worked short shifts in the evenings.

Cons

You are required to ask everyone to open a charge card, and I mean everyone. If you don't meet your charge card goal, management is not happy. All the coupons have numerous restrictions. I've had coworkers cry from angry customers blaming the sales associates when their coupon did not apply to the item they wanted to purchase. Customers can be ruthless when it comes to saving money and getting their way. They love taking out their frustration on sales associates, so come to work mentally prepared.
