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

    Pros

    -nothing but the 10% off (which is hardly anything)

    Cons

    -management is terrible
    - inconsistent scheduling
    -little pay

    Advice to Management

    Too much is expected from you for way too little pay. Not worth it. Schedule was never consistent and would change suddenly just a couple days before my shift. I was called basically every day I had off and was begged to come in and it was very frustrating. Management would act friendly at first but when I would say no to coming in on my days off, they were very rude and passive aggressive. Management honestly couldn't care less about their employees. After I put my two-weeks in, on my last day, management screwed up and accidentally scheduled me the next day even though my last day was clearly stated in my two week notice letter. My manager asked if I could stay an additional day and I couldn't because I got a new job and had to work. My manager yelled at me and treated me so badly my last day for a mistake that was not my fault at all. I wanted to call HR but I let it go. I decided to tell another manager that her behavior was unfair and unprofessional and that I didn't deserve it because I did not do anything wrong. Her response was "It is what it is." Wouldn't recommend if you actually wanted to be treated as an equal. I should add, employees were allowed to get shifts covered and I think I did it like three times (OUT OF A YEAR) and then my manager said I couldn't get my shifts covered anymore because she was sick of changing the schedule WHILE other employees would still get their shifts covered. Just all around unfair experience and the store managers just make rules up as they go and are very unorganized.
