    I have been working at Stein Mart full-time

    Pros

    If you work at stein mart your probably very hard working if your any type of manager. Working more then 40 hours a week and their asked to go to different stores and multi task. Some tenured associates are very hard working

    Cons

    Some cashiers quit after a week leaving managers to ring register while still having to perform their management duties. Impossible work load given, expected to stay hours after shift. Don’t count on having even a minute of down time. Expected to be on the register and cashier while still having little to no time completing your manager duties doesn’t even occur to senior management. Forced overtime, closing past 10:30 pm and work staring at 7 am next day. If your working in ladies expect to have customers trying on 10+ items at a time. The go backs are all day, and organizing the store takes so long after customers make mess. If you can’t do 4 jobs in one you won’t make it. Sales change every day. I can’t believe how hard they make you work, extremely bad work balance. Hand written mark downs, moving items. And then you have the merchandise that comes in and has to be put out, sometimes units of 500 or more.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more cashiers and associates for department. When only people left to cashier are managers nothing else will get done. Schedule changes drop of a hat. Extremely hard work and no no gratitude.
