Productive and very easy going work place
IT Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNJune 7, 2017
Ascena Retail was an easy going work place that wasn't too fast paced for a new employee, and you're able to talk to great employees of the retail world every day. Management was fantastic, you never felt micro managed, and the hardest part of the job was that sometimes said employees could be a little difficult, but nothing too extreme.

Bad with moral. Company doesn't care about employees.
Shipping (Former Employee) –  Greencastle, INMarch 18, 2017
Company is terrible with moral and doesn't care about employees. Season people got better pay and better bonuses then offered a job. Not fair to the people who work there every day for 4-5 years and still make less than the people here for holiday.l, whom also get the same hours.

Crane Operator (Current Employee) –  Greencastle, INFebruary 11, 2017
There are two areas of where these reviews are coming from, Ohio and Indiana. Ohio and Indiana are not only different as far as the location but in everything else as well. Take the positive statements about Ohio and then flip them to the opposite side, there you have Indiana. The two and only two perks and similarities between both locations are the pay and benefits. Everything else is day and night between the two facilities. Many others, some being there 15-25 years as well as myself have come to realize that money comes with a price and sometimes that price is worse than a deadly addiction.

Good place to work
Packer (Former Employee) –  Etna, OHJanuary 28, 2017
You work Monday through Friday, 10 hour days. Decent wages and weekends off. Rarely do you work overtime. You are more likely to get VTO. A nice cafeteria and overall environment. You also have access to the gym upstairs. The biggest downfall is how loud the work area is, though earplugs are provided.

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, LANovember 28, 2016
I enjoyed my time at Lowes. I find that the New Iberia location, at the time was very team oriented and everyone got along for the most part. As long as you did your job and believed in team building, you had no problem at Lowes. Yes, you do work hard, but with great team building and goals, challenging tasks could be easily achieved.

Replinisher (Former Employee) –  Greencastle, INNovember 15, 2016
Ascena is a great place to work, the only downside is having to call in the night before to see how many hours you work, if you work at all. Obviously, this doesn't allow you to schedule any plans. Besides that, it was a great place to work.
The temporary associate representative wasn't professional at all. The representative was personal, flirtatious to get her way, and unsympathetic.
The work day/week went by relatively quick, the managers and supervisors always made sure you kept busy.
Pros
Cheap lunches, friendly staff
Cons
Unable to have a schedule, had to call in the night before for hours.

Typical day at Ascena
Packer (Former Employee) –  Greencastle, INNovember 11, 2016
I pack items in a bag or box. How much the don't care about people. The management needs to be fired and have all new management in there because the will not let you get ahead in life. I have lots of friend there that I got along with them great. Driving the crane. When it was time to go home at the end of the day.
Pros
Got all the drinks you wanted to drink at breaks
Cons
had to pay for for that was not fit to eat.

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Etna, OHSeptember 4, 2016
The absolute worst company I have ever worked for. Employees are treated like second class citizens. No room for advancement. Management is incompetent, Hr is absolutely worthless, and the company looks like it's headed for the dumpster. If you are looking for a quality career with a great company than don't even waste your time filling out the application.
Pros
none
Cons
everything
