    I have been working at Stage Stores full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits discount fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Pay is one of the lowest in the industry
    Long hours
    Between making a buck and taking care of employees the employee loses every time

    Advice to Management

    Field management is fine. Home office management is another story. Your #1 resource is your employees. Opening 5 hours earlier than everyone else on Thanksgiving so they can't see their families is a perfect example of your priorities. Nobody in your stores should make less than a Bueno employee. Even your management staff makes less. The company is fine, but the way you treat your employees is the worst I've experienced

    Work with stores to update their appearance. Many stores that I've visited (as well as the one I worked at) have a very poor appearance. It makes a terrible impression on customers.

    Pros

    great employee discount, somewhat flexible hours, great co workers

    Cons

    no room for growth, little training, district managers can be insensitive, raises are a joke

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to focus on training employees. Store managers and assistant managers lack basic leadership and people skills. Also, work on investing in training so you can actually provide great service and therefore afford your employees.
