    I worked at Herberger's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made a lot of personal connections
    Everyone worked together

    Made a lot of lifetime friends. Great discount along with rewards on store card. Great merchandise to sell.

    Cons

    Pay. Supervisors were salaried til 2013 then went to hourly.
    Company went bankrupt. Liquidating the store assets was tough on all who stayed til the end.

    Advice to Management

    Store management great. Corporate management did not seem to care about the little fish. In end too far in debt. Losing battle to get ahead for over five years.

    I have been working at Herberger's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful management and in store staff. Great benefits! 10 days of paid vacation for full time and you get more vacation days the more years you work.

    Cons

    Mis-management at the corporate level, especially with our coupons and sales. Frequent changes to scheduling of whole store. Schedules not given out until the day before the schedules start.

    Advice to Management

    Management on the corporate level should look at sales to maximize profits. scheduling hundreds of employees to come in early several times each week to change sale signs in not cost effective.
