Negative Outlook

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

Pros

The employee discount and the fact I had a job were the only pros.

Cons

I worked here for a little over a year and literally had four different store managers in that time frame. The assigned work schedules were inconsistent. There were some weeks when I'd only be scheduled to work 10 hours for an entire week! Store management would never give you a schedule more than a week ahead of time. The management was incompetent, and the pay was 25 cents above minimum wage. Just an awful job.

Advice to Management

Train store associates so they can properly and successfully do their jobs. Hire competent store managers.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Catherines part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can shop while you work, helping others, flexible hours, nice and helpful co-workers, easy to understand procedures, most of the customers are friendly

    Cons

    No breaks, small discount, obsessive policies... Upper management puts WAY too much emphasis on selling the credit card/Perks card and NOT on customer service. Basically - sell the card or be fired, no matter how short your shift is or if you're not even at the register.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, you can't get 1 credit card application during your small 4 hour shift. Most of the time it's because the customers you ring up already have the card... Yet upper management will still make you feel guilty and threaten termination.
