Part-time Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Orland Park, IL – July 17, 2017
A typical day at work includes fun loving people good quality work. What I learned was to make a sale to the customers by having a great personality. The management there is okay. The workplace culture is fast pace. The hardest part of the job is making the customer open a credit card as well as doing a bra fit. The most enjoyable part is making sure all the customers are happy.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 11, 2017
You cant get any hours at this company and frequently have to work ridiculous 3 hour shifts spread out over many days. One week will be 8 hours and the next 32. No one gets over 32 except managers because, god forbid, you might be considered full time and get benefits. There is no incentive. The Ace awards program is a joke because if you win a 50.00 gift card they take out 41.00 in " taxes" no one in management can explain how that is possible. The managers try their best but how is it possible to have good morale. Then you are expected to spend what little money you do make to buy the clothes to make sure you are "dressed acceptably". Forget it and stay home. Start a lemonade stand
Keyholder (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – July 4, 2017
I know management has recently changed hands, several times, but when I was employed here, upper management was very helpful and knowledgable, they were willing to train and encouraged promotions within the company.
Worked here 5yrs. Only people to get full time or benefits are the store manager and assistant manager. Every one else 3hrs(associates) 20hrs (Sales Leaders). Never have set days off and they always want more & more out of you constantly pushing you to open credit cards and sell perks loyalty cards. They don't care about anything but making more $. And doesnt matter how much you do it's never enough. I Only stayed because it was my first job and flexible little to no hours helped me through school.
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bloomingdale, IL – June 29, 2017
I was working at Catherines the same time I was driving the bus. I did this schedule for 2.5 years. My husband was home with our 3 children while I was working. It was difficult but I got threw it. I took care of the customer from the time they walked in the door to the time they walked out. I also did stock 3 times a week. It was a busy store also but I liked the customers and I liked what I was doing.
Being around people and doing something I had never done before.
Being on your feet the whole night you were there.
No one does their work, they always call in so you have to fill in for someone on your only day off. The complain so much and its just so much drama. if you are not a sales leader you only work one or two days a week and start at 7.25.
Second Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – June 19, 2017
When I worked there my manager was EXCELENT & the company CARED about he employees. We all worked together to make money & give our customers the best service. Our clothing quality was great & I looked FORWARD to each day at work.
Perks, complete training, checks & balances, good discount, customers
focus on numbers only, no help from DMs or corporate
Work load has increased and pay hasn't. Demands are high to generate revenue and numerous mistakes come down to store level retail employees are required to fix. Not a cost effective company with thousands of dollars spent on wasteful advertising and coupons that are massively produced every month only to be thrown away. To satisfy the customer the company doesn't stand by their own policies we are instructed to implement.
Cleaning, Sales Associate, Stocking (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – May 31, 2017
I love my store. Sadly I just don't get enough hours to make a living off of. However if your looking for a part time job to fill in gaps and love helping customers then this place is FANTASTIC for you. They strongly encourage building a relationship with your customers and I really enjoyed the friendly and nice atmosphere the store provided.
Great Company, Great Coworkers, Good Breaks, Great location
Part time, Can be demanding, I hope you like cleaning and organizing.
Sourcing Manager - Knits (Former Employee) – Bensalem, PA – May 16, 2017
4stars. Categories are well developed but customers are difficult to please. Design needs to be more original. Leadership encouraged visibility among managers and assistants but in the end select few were heard.
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – May 15, 2017
I really liked this job. If life hadn't gotten in my way, I would have stayed long enough to be a key-holder or even assistant manager. My co-workers were very lovely women and I enjoyed working with them all. Yes, it got busy and sometimes we'd be behind, but all in all, this was a fun job for me.
Great Co-Workers, made other women feel good about themselves
