Manager (Former Employee) – AUGUSTA GA – June 22, 2017
At citi trends I was a superviser. I had to open and close the store, made bank deposites, hired and terminated,ny manger showed med different ways to respond in differnt but positve ways. The hardest part of the job was balancing the money at the end of the day. The people that worked there made the job great a lot of team work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Riverdale, GA – March 28, 2017
Would highly recommend this job to anyone who loves people and fashion. Management and the crew were very accepting and willing to help with training and any questions you could have. And helping customers find anything was a breeze.
It's a nice place to work, I've been there for 3 yea of and on and I've made some close friends.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 24, 2017
Cititrends is a good place to be, but it's time for me to move on to bigger and better. A typical day at work is pretty calm if it's not the weekend. What I have learned working there is picking up on some management techniques that I could use some where else.
Good team work, lenient schedule, Great team effort when faced with a challenge
Hours being cut, more work for less pay, customers can be pretty bad
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 20, 2017
I left this position because I was constantly lied to about raises. I was to be compensated with an annual raise that I never received as well as a raise for training other staff and that did not happen either. I thought it was best that I remove myself from this environment.
I'm not too sure if it was just my store, but my general manager was always very vague with the instructions she gave us. She also gave us very little tools to do our jobs and constantly changed her mind about things. She also refused to work with my second job on hours. So, I ended up leaving and working full time at my second job.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Hampton, VA – March 13, 2017
I started here as a sales associate. Was promoted to Assistant Manager in 4 months. Everything was fine until store manager started mixing her personal conflicts into work. I was skipped over for a promotion and the position was given to an associate who was there for only 5 months. The DM does nothing to help no matter who you call. I was pushed to the point of leaving after not getting any help whatsoever with issues. Its an okay job but not worth the pay and stress
1st Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Crowley, LA – March 11, 2017
Trained employees on job skills and store policy. Performed day to day opening and closing paper work. Prepared store for corporate visits from head boss. Assisted customers on purchasing the right merchandise for themselves.
Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 9, 2017
Managers are required to do the most physical work. In addition to janitorial services, stocking and receiving, markdowns, office paperwork, scheduling, customer service, security checks, monitoring the fitting rooms and cashing out customers to name a few. Loss prevention at Citi Trends is done by management and the staff. The company motto is that great customer service prevents shoplifting.
401K, healthcare, never a boring day, bonuses.
No proper loss prevention, rude customers, not enough hours for a proper staff, unreasonable expectations on associate work requirements.
I wouldnt suggest anyone work here. The new manager is the worse person ever. You will be treated like an number and not an employee. The DM refuses to have contact with her managers. I hated this job. It was horrible. Do yourself a favor and don't apply here
Did what the management required me to do, such as, work the register, clean the sales floor, greet customers, showed customer to the dressing room and put out stock. I learned that education is the way to success. The management is the average management for retail. The work culture was full of different personalities. The hardest part of the job was knowing when to speak and when to be silent. The most enjoyable part of the job was bond with the customers.
