    Not so rewarding

    Jun 28, 2010 - Sales Associate in Warrenton, MO
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - customers and other associates are friendly and pleasant to work with - flexibility in hours--can work around a second job or family commitments - 40% discount on clothing

    Cons

    - low pay as compared to other retail jobs in the area-- average raise doesn't even keep up with inflation--the longer you stay, the further behind you get - unfair salary practices--new people coming in can be paid more than veteran employees - constant pressure to meet sales goals and quotas with very little reward - most employees are part time and receive no benefits - very little appreciation for hard work--evaluations are based solely on numbers (UPTs, $PTs, charges opened, etc,) but numbers can be skewed easily if someone "steals" your sales or makes a mistake in giving you credit. No way to correct these mistakes or change them afterward. If you have a slow day, you lose, you are expected to make your sales even if no customers enter the store. - any time worked before the store opens or after the store closes lowers your sales statistics which counts against you -too much power play from managers and district managers--when they want to get rid of someone, they pressure them to quit by cutting hours, making them work the worst schedule possible, reporting miniscule infractions that everyone makes. --that way they get out of paying unemployment benefits very subjective--if a manager doesn't like you for some reason they force you out
