I have been working at Marshalls full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are good health and retirement benefits

Cons

Only full time employees get benefits. Expect too much work to be done daily

Advice to Management

Increase payroll. Along with going out checking on customers, cashiering, making my department neat, CAST, and processing and putting out new shoes, there is just not enough time.Also while were at it, GET RID OF THE GREETER! I personally think customers would rather get waited on faster than to have some one greet them and tell them which register to go to.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and environment.
    Flexible hours.
    Good starter job.

    Cons

    Can be boring, tiring, and frustrating at times.
    Dealing with customers 24/7 can get tedious.
    Awful raises.

    Mix the job up for a cashier. Standing for 8 hours in one spot can make time drag on and makes being there painfully boring.

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

    Pros

    Good starter job. Flexible scheduling if you work part-time. Extremely busy work environment and constant changing of duties so as not to get bored.

    Cons

    Horrendous starting salary and wage increases. Full-time is considered 30 hours a week, making it difficult to make a decent living, Communication between management and associates is sparse and vague. Full-time associates are given too many tasks and not enough hours to complete them. No incentives for hard work and dedication. Limited career opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with your employees, especially your full-timers. Encourage instead of trying to hinder employees career advancement. Don't retaliate against employees for using the open door policy. Get to know your employees. Showing that you care boasts morale and will likely drive employees to do more than just the minimum requirements. Schedule your full-time staff 35 hours a week and you'll see a difference in productivity.
