Working at Avenue as a manager is all about selling their credit card and magazine subscriptions. So if you don't make your goals daily, prepare to be insulted, threatened and punished. All upper management cares about is results...NOT you, NOT your staff! The DM's make bonuses and heaven help you if your store's performance keeps her from getting it. – more... As if you don't want to make bonus yourself, they pay you pennies and work you to death for it! Who wouldn't want more money?! Heck, most managers need it just to pay bills! In addition, the merchandise is poorly made. Their CloudWalkers are junk but they once were nice comfortable shoes. It's not uncommon now for customers to come back with broken heels, straps and buckles. Their cotton tops shrink 2 sizes after washing and when the customers return them you have to tell them no because it's been worn! All while knowing its a valid return! So then the customer flips out on you and calls corporate who turns the customer over to the DM who says YES! So then you end up dealing with the angry customer again and she thinks you're a loser because you could've helped her to begin with. But if you take it back and make the customer happy, when the DM comes to do your damages you're in trouble because you have worn merchandise that the company's "losing money" on. All I can say is, you can't win! Stay FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!! – less
