Sales Associate (Former Employee), Oxford, NC – November 7, 2014
Pros: flexible schedules, good work enviroment
Cons: not enough hours for all the employees
A typical day at Cato's involved stocking merchandise and putting out new inventory. Helping customers with any questions or concerns they may have about any of our products. My co-workers were very enjoyable to work around each day. Heavy lifting and irritable customer relations was the hardest part of my job. I enjoyed the customers and different inventory as well as the ever changing scenery.
Assistant Manager/ Store Manager (Former Employee), Quincy, FL – April 3, 2014
Pros: vacation time, yearly raises and bonus checks
Cons: unsympathetic bosses
I enjoyed going to this job daily because it dealt with fashion which I loved. The only problem I had with this job was when I lost my uncle and grandmother within a three week period of one another my district manager did not show me any sympathy; she expected me to be to work all emotional during this time. Other than that this was and awesome job.
i think that i would like working for this company i like the staff

my day at work was a good day I learned how to do things the way cato's want like working the floor liked working with my co-workers and seing how they do things and as far as management goes I got to see how they handle custmers and they eye contact they expression towards the customer and what I seen was good and the hardest thing about the job was trying to do everything right the first day not giving my self time to learn the job
Cato is a fun place to work; its a great working enviroment.

manager (Former Employee), wakeforest, nc – September 21, 2013
Pros: great repeat customers
Cons: over worked and under paid
I worked for this company for 10 years. I loved the customers but upper management would come in and nothing was ever good enough. The pay is the worse after 10 years all the raise I got was 5 cents, yet the company wants you to walk around with a smile on your face and pretend life is wonderful while all you can do is cry when all your bills are behind.
