"Think Very Highly of Themselves"

Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at Cato part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Easy work; just helping customers and putting out stock
The other employees were nice and easy to work with
Easy to get hired for a summer job because they were pretty desperate for associates

Cons

Boring; there are rarely any customers so most of the job is just standing around
Corporate is out of touch with what customers really want and what working in this store is actually like

Advice to Management

Find out from hourly workers what customers tell them they actually want and try to keep expectations realistic

    I have been working at Cato full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    20 percent of merchandise, company matches 100% 401k, after so many hrs the company gives you stock

    Cons

    No work life balance, always pushing for more with no incentives, RVP, and TVP come around every now and then and act like the can run your store, low pay, high turnover, Only one weekend off a month not including Friday

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives, not everyone is replaceable, maybe is the DM and not the Store Manger

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cato full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best advantage is that they usually promote from within the company. You will gain a lot of experience in all aspects of the company.

    Cons

    There is a lot work and responsibility for the pay. Management receives bonuses, but not the regular sales associates. They are working just as hard as management.

    Advice to Management

    Management should start giving the sales associates bonuses for making the budget.
