Cells Associate (Former Employee) – Roseville, MI – August 17, 2016
Working at Dots Fashions was an fun loving, dedicated, most compassionate place I've even worked at. They tried their absolute best to make sure that the customers where completely satisfied when they left the establishment they entered. The most enjoable part was watching customers leave out happy and ready to look awesome.
Senior Sales Associate / Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – September 23, 2016
Originally, store sold many name brand overstocks at $10 or less, then changed and began selling their own brand at higher prices and got away from the known brand clothing. The quality of the store brand got better over time, but the store had internal issues with the owners
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Maple Heights, OH – August 27, 2016
Everyday I provided excellent customer service, by greeting customers with a positive and friendly attitude. I learned about the new trends and how to display merchandise and floor sets. Management was just as hard working as the sales associates and cared about the staff. My co-workers were easy to get along with and a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job was trying to please everyone. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting a variety of people and building long term relationships.
Meeting new people, discounts on merchandise, and preparing merchandise displays
Pay rate was low for the amount of work that needed to be completed, no security guards in the store
STORE MANAGER IN TRAINING/ ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Lake Worth, TX – May 26, 2016
As every other Retail stores, it is focused on the customer. Kept an upbeat look on the jobs at hand, everyday learning experience. Great co-workers that kept the business fun. The hardest part was dealing with difficult customers, but management always backed the teams.
SALES ASSOCIATE/CASHIER (Former Employee) – North Riverside, IL – May 24, 2016
Dots had not so much benefits for sales associates, but we were able to have holiday pay, offered overtime, sometimes were able to have full-time hours. Personally I loved the job and plenty of opportunities to move up in the company, I didn't because I was also a full time student. They were able to work with my school schedule perfectly never really had a complaint. I loved this job wish it was still available.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – May 10, 2016
a typical day at work consisted of me working the cash register(point of sales), taking care of the upkeep of the job, providing customer service, answering phones and, and making sure to know what the sale of the day was and to know what the goal of the day in earnings was as well. What I took away from Dots was my customer service skills, and how to treat a customer, how to communicate with a customer, and how to build a relationship with the customer within a short period of time. Management was nice, but not that present within the store. They were not really hands on, they told you what they wanted the sales to be and the expectations they had for the store and that was it. The co-workers some were friendly others weren't, they were just there for the job. The hardest part of the job was when the store got really busy and there were not a lot of workers working that night. The most enjoyable part of the job was making sure the the customers walked out of the store with everything they wanted and giving them a pleasant experience will doing so .
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 27, 2016
Being a cashier and setting up sales displays while I enhanced my customer service and cashier skills. The hardest part was knowing and giving my best, while my boss allowed coworkers to slack. Most enjoyable part were the sales and the smiles on the customers faces after their transactions.
Productive and fun workspace that provides learning experiences.
Assistant Manager/Manager (Former Employee) – Lithonia, GA – April 17, 2016
A typical day at work included opening, dropping the deposit off at the bank and getting change. Afterwards I'd get my registers ready for the day and prep my sales associate by telling her/him the goals set.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nanuet, NY – April 10, 2016
Dots had an easy going and relaxed vibe at the same time. It was the atmosphere that drew people to our store, I believe. There was just this ambiance of love and desire to help within our store. The people I worked with were also amazing and they made sure that everybody on board truly understood everything. The customers were also amazing, they made my job ten times easier to be honest.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Crest Hill, IL – April 8, 2016
Dots was one of my best jobs to work at. To me it wasn't just a job, but a family. I started out as a sales associate and made my way up to temporary store manager. I loved helping clients find outfits, gifts etc... But at the end there were just too many shoplifters.
I learned how to associate with my clients
I had to give up working there due to the dangers of shoplifters.
I got good valuable job experience on this job. You encounter a diverse customer base however this company has high customer retention rates. Unfortunately company went out of business, I believe now they are operating in a few locations.
