    Pros

    Discount is pretty good, also the prices of the clothing are good.

    The pay, the hours vs work load, they shave your time if they are over, very dishonest, and care nothing about employees.

    Advice to Management

    You're no better than the corporate people you complain about all day long

    Pros

    I loved Stage, it had its ups and downs. The people were great, my team was great.

    Cons

    When the current CEO took over the environment quickly deteriorated. The culture took a nose dive and ethics and respect went out the window.

    Pros

    There aren't many pros except you work with some great people and there are summer hours.. I can't really think of much

    Cons

    They do not may much but expect you to work long hours. If they give raises (depends on sales) it will be like 2%.

    I worked at Stage Stores full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, people, corporate office location

    Cons

    No work/life balance, no training, no opportunity for advancement, outdated technology with almost no IT people to support/resolve issues as they arise, open issues lists are pages long - with work-arounds being the norm, extremely reactive to all issues - not proactive by any measure.

    Advice to Management

    Try and put yourselves in the shoes and minds of your associates. Really live by the company core values. Don't tell your associates - you are lucky to even have a job OR if you don't like it here there's always COBRA.
