    I have been working at rue21 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, they were the only reason I stayed as long as I did. I loved my staff

    Cons

    Store managers are salaried and aren't given enough hours to staff the store properly. There is an excessive amount of tasking each day. More than there are hours in the day and since staffing is poor all of it falls to the store manager. The main focus is on selling fragrance to the point of harassment. The clothes don't matter only selling the fragrance does. Pay is very low as well

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Stop taking advantage of the minors you hire. Mostly if you're a fragrance brand stop advertising the clothes in the windows and display the fragrances instead.

    I worked at rue21 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discount is okay, but employee appreciation is the best. Fellow associates are friendly and great to work with.

    Cons

    Management is unorganized, abusive to associates, and cares more about selling fragrances than customer service. Scheduling is horrible, and employee turn-over is extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the associates and their concerns with a genuine goal to help them instead of bullying them.
