    DO NOT WORK HERE

    Pros

    25% discount on everything, including sale items. Sometimes they will offer a 40% discount on special holiday or appreciation weekends. Hour-long break if you work over 7 hours, 30-minute break if you work 6 hours. None if you work 5 or less.

    Cons

    You start off at $7.25 per hour and if you are promoted to a lead position you MIGHT get $8.00. The products carried are poorly made and the extremely low price tags attract customers who do not want customer service. The size of stockroom is pitiful. There is no room to place boxes for shipment, which arrives once a week. Shipment usually crowds the back hallway and blocks the entrances to bathrooms and the fire exit. The store's entire stock is on the sales floor, resulting in a cluttered store that is overwhelming to customers. All employees must wear headsets on shift while the manager on duty is constantly yelling the store's current UPT and DPT in your ear. Not all employees are not cross-trained. Only a select few know how to use the POS system (Retail Pro 8, which deserves its own separate review). Only those promoted to lead positions are trained to do each others' jobs. There are 5 different lead positions, and managers do not pay attention to these leads' job descriptions. The Markdown Specialists were assigned to do job more often than I did, and when I questioned management, they claimed they training them. I was treated as a glorified sales associate. The store has only 3 dressing rooms which is irritating for customers, especially on busy days.
