    I worked at Stage Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, ample hours as part-time, great retail experience.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, unjust employee reviews, terrible leadership from management.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding you store managers accountable for their absence, un-justified expectations, and terrible constructive criticism skills. More training for managers on leadership and interpersonal skills.

    I worked at Stage Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you meet are great, the hours are flexible, and you get paid time off and benefits.

    Cons

    Some managers did not care about their employees, ONLY their customers, which made the customers mad. Also we never got raises.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation and recognition for hard working employees.

    I worked at Stage Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working in the Stores with great hard working people

    Cons

    They expected Top Tier Focus Department Store focus on 3 employees per most stores.

    Advice to Management

    Cosmetics Department was expected to be center of the store focus, despite trucks upon trucks arriving for other departments. Associates in the Corporate Office had their own agenda and did not care about in store support. Worst Years of my Life
