    I have been working at Garage part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This was my first retail job and I loved it here. I was looking for a summer job and I just happened to walk in since the website to apply in-store. I asked the manager if they were hiring and she said she was going to ask me if I wanted to work there. So I filled out the application turned it in and the next day I had a interview and by the end of the week I had a job. This job was a great to getting me into the door...

    Cons

    Training was probably the most boring part of the job. I felt as thought the pay wasn't good enough for all that they expected us too do. Sometimes the managers would get upset and pushy if the store wasn't doing good on sales which was frustrating because we cant make people buy stuff they don't want no matter how good you sell it. Other than those cons it was a great job.

        Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate

        I worked at Garage part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Overall Garage is a great place to get retail experience for your resume. Training is pretty good and they gives you tips on approaching customers and effective sale techniques however you do need to actually be on the floor and put these tips into action to truly be successful. It really helps to improve your people skills and getting to know and connect with customers. The girls at my location were very friendly and...

        Cons

        The sales expectations can be unreasonable at times especially if there is more girls scheduled than customers. This can create girls "fighting" to help that customer. Although customer service standards are great in Garage it can be excessive at times, and frustrating for customers who don't want to constantly be approached and Sales Associates who don't want to do the constant approaching.

        I worked at Garage part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        - Made some good friends while working here - 50% off

        Cons

        - They expect you to know everything - They teach you absolutely nothing and you get in trouble for not doing things properly even though you weren't taught - If you're looking for a job with a lot of hours, this place isn't for you. I had full open availability and got 2 shifts a week, 3 if I was lucky - They set unrealistic deadlines everyday that are impossible to reach - If you're closing at Garage, you're practically...

        Advice to Management

        Stop expecting new employees to know everything right off the bat, it's unrealistic. Don't put people down for not knowing how to do things, teach them. Management needs to tone it down and not take their job so seriously as most girls who work in the store are in High School or College and don't see this as a permanent place of employment. Hire less people so more hours can be given. Set realistic goals in the store...

        Advice to Management

        Given that 99.9 percent of part-time retail employees are high-school or college students, for most of us its not a career goal to stay in retail, so full-time employees and managers need to take it down a notch and quit taking things so seriously. Provide adequate training for new employees.
