    I have been working at Stein Mart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers. Nice Discount. Flexible with schedule. Thats about it.

    Cons

    They expect too much with little pay. There are really no consequence for constant call-outs or absences. The turn around with associates is crazy fast, some don't even stay longer pass there orientation. TOO MANY CORPORATE VISITS!!!

    Advice to Management

    Please understand that you can't give us 14hrs of work and jam into a 8hr shift we try our best considering all the things that go one from being cashier, call-outs, being a department manager.

    I worked at Stein Mart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Decent discount
    -I at least got along well with my peers and enjoyed the people

    Cons

    -Hours expected
    -Didn't keep word
    -Pay is pretty mediocre
    -No such thing as calling in sick or working from home. If you're sick or if something goes wrong you still better find a way to make it to work. (Had to be back at work the afternoon my daughter was born, and had to be back at work the day after a surgery because they only give you one week of vacation time that they prefer you don't take more than 2 days of at a time.)

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better for the hours you require to get the job done and have actual benefits.
