    Pros

    you work harder than other areas in the store- BUT You get commission, so if you are able to sell more than what your hourly wages would be, you can potentially make a lot more than hourly

    Cons

    If a customer returns you loose commission. When there are giant sales, there is no guarantee people working at registers give you the commission you deserve, you have to compete with other coworkers to get sales.

    Advice to Management

    GUARANTEE commission during sales (like black Friday) it is SO MUCH WORK and there is absolutely no guarantee you will be assigned the commission you deserve

  10. "Will give you the hours you need but not a fun job"

    I have been working at Herberger's part-time

    Pros

    You will get a discount working there. It isn't too strict of an environment and it's easy to make friends with your coworkers there.

    Cons

    The coupons will stress out the customers and you as well. The pay isn't great. It's hard to keep such a big store clean and organized.

    Advice to Management

    Please participate in working on the floor more often to show your employees that you actually do something at your job during the day. Please be polite and don't treat us like we're inferior.
