Buffalo Exchange was a fun place to work! Lots to see an do everyday and it provided a funky fashion oriented atmosphere. The hard part about any retail job is long hours and limited time off.
The further I moved into management the messier it became. I moved out of state to pursue a management role and within 6 months they had fired the Area Manager, Store Manager, and Associate Managers- myself included. The hours were long and support was minimal, stores that are not doing well have limited opportunities to better their sales or cultivate staff relations. Buying used clothes from the public is tough- you have to know a ton about clothes but do not have any of the "glamorous" appeal of other retail jobs. Customers could be very hard to handle.
Good benefits, health insurance for part timers that included domestic partners, PTO, generous discount, opportunities to travel
generous discount, PTO, quality health insurance, fun culture
long hours, lack of support, little management structure
