Sales Associate (Former Employee), Eastland Mall in Bloomington Illinois – October 13, 2013
Pros: being in the mall, customer interaction, good quality products
Cons: low pay, no flexibility
My experience was that the store was very slow and on commission its hard to make a good living. The draw was almost never met. The products sold were of good quality and the co workers made it fun at times. The management was not very good at keeping control of the store and driving business. The fun part was customer interaction and being in the mall. – more... The cons are low pay and benefits, long hours at times, not much flexibility with having to work holidays. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – December 15, 2012
Pros: great customers.
Cons: pay structure, lack of good management
There was really a lack of leadership. The store manager that hired me quit a week later. There was no structure. People in cluding managers would leave the store for an extended period of time. There was no sense of job security. Even if 2 people would come in the store for an entire 8 hour shift you were still responsible for selling. I felt like – more... the volume that was done in the store I was in did not merit such a high quota. There was not a fair structure to evenly distribure sales. It was every man for himself, which led to infighting. I loved servicing the customers. That was my favorite part. For me however, Bachrach was not a good fit. – less
