Sales Floor Associate (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WI – August 14, 2014
A typical day at work for me is maintaining a clean sales floor and constant monitoring fitting rooms. I help out in other departments as needed. Each day I learn a different strategy on how to help customers and keep a presentable display for our merchandise. Our management team is good too. They're always available when we as employees need them as – more... well as our customers. The hardest part of this position is the constant picking up and recovery. The most enjoyable part of my duties are meeting new people and being a good asset to this company. – less
Pros: good people to work with, good management, breaks, good training
Cons: tiring job
The company trains and cross trains across a wide variety of different positions based on their need. A typical day of work is for a part time worker a 9 hour shift on a Saturday and Sunday. The hours are fairly long but they do include breaks for meals. The company trains well in the retail field. They train in almost every department and they utilize – more... the most out of their employees and their abilities. The job teaches a person how to provide customer service as well as sales in the retail field. The coworkers and the people you will usually encounter are very easy to get along with. There is a lot of mutual respect and trust in the workplace. The hardest part of the job is the 9 hour availability on the weekends and the scheduling. There is also lots of walking around to do if you are a sales associate. The end of a workday, tiredness will not be surprised. It can be a job that can wear you out. Management as far as the general managers go is outstanding. They take into consideration the needs of the employees and do a very good job of meeting those needs or concerns. – less
Ladies Sportswear Associate (Former Employee), Montgomery, AL – August 13, 2014
Pros: the employees
Cons: asistant manager needs an attitude adjustment cause her title has gone to her head.
This company does not care about it's employees at all! They will work you in the ground for a small amount of pay, will even have you working 2 departments at the same time. And when closing expect you to recover and replenish both departments by yourself! The discount is the lowest in retail history only 10% which is only sales tax here...what a waste! – more... It's just not worth it...oh they will call you in on your off days and if you have children you will close every shift while teenagers and senior citizens get day shifts! – less

The co-workers got along wonderfully as we – more... were part of a work family..helping each other when store became busy.

Receiving Supervisor (Current Employee), Brownsville, TX – August 11, 2014
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would be going with a state of mind that no matter how difficult it was to get out freight with no payroll which meant no personnel, we were going to succeed, and finish our goal for the day. I learned how to speak to personnel to get them motivated and work harder to accomplish our goal. Tried to get management involved so they – more... would know where we would be at the end of day. My co-workers worked hard and tried their best all the time. The hardest part of the job was staying focused and managed the entire group to keep focus as well to finish our goal. The most enjoyable part of the day was the end of the day when I saw everything that was accomplished. – less
