Current Employee - Sales Floor Associate in Hamden, CT
Current Employee - Sales Floor Associate in Hamden, CT
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

-Negotiable if you tell them your experience as far as pay is concerned
- alright benefits
associate discounts
you can look up your check instead of guesswork
First dibs on new clothes or whatever's on clearance.

Cons

Catty, unprofessional management.
bad pay
People expect you to do assignments alone when it requires 2-3 people to do it efficiently!
no way to advance
terrible hours
 gossipy unfriendly coworkers
unreliable scheduling
"Yes we can" policy extremely easy to abuse.

Advice to Management

Hire managers to grow from their positions instead of letting them sit for years on end, to only become stale. Get rid of the "yes we can" policy. Customers can lie through their teeth and take advantage of this causing the company to ultimately lose money. Show employees some respect!

    Current Employee - POS Specialist in Gainesville, GA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I thought the discount was good; it's okay
    If you look hard enough you can find good deals
    You get to wear nice stuff to work
    Occasional extra discount on top of employee discount

    Cons

    The discount (15%)
    I changed my availability, but my schedule was never changed to suit that, in fact they game me MORE
    Along with above, I got less than 15 a week (every week), then when I got a new job they asked me if I was leaving, I told them no, then they started giving me MORE hours

    Advice to Management

    Encourage the managers and supervisors to work with people's schedules.
    Hire the extra people when you know you need it. There needs to be at least 2 cashiers on both side NOT one.
    There needs to be more than one manager on a BUSY day. I called a "Code 'C'" for over an HOUR before I had to radio (walkie) a Supervisor to do it.
    Instead of staying open til 11pm (and losing money, by paying employees to stay), have more genuine sales.

    Current Employee - Collector in Milwaukee, WI
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You can advance to management in an ordrly and timely fashion. There career path is realistic for there employees

    Cons

    There are a few managers that are really incompetent so its makes a smooth process rough. Although there are great members of management, its just those sore thumbs that are seen so vividly

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with your teams better and actually pretend to care it encourages the associates to do better which works out for both management and the individual
