The managment team isn't professional and the fact that I have to wear my coat all day because of the lack of heat is just ridiculous.
Clerk/stock (Current Employee), new york city, new yorkJanuary 8, 2014
Working at this company wasn't for me. Mostly because of the compensation and the lack of apprecation.

very trying work place
Cashier (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 29, 2013
Pros: flexibility
Cons: very short lunch breaks
A typical day at work was always very unpredictable. I learned that not every work place has to be enjoyable, your just there to do a job. Management changed a lot and was seemingly pleasant. The hardest part of this job was the constant changing of management and the most enjoyable part were my co-workers.

Pros: discounts
My position was a Cashier/Sales Associate and a typical day at work would be at the register throughout the whole day, greeting customers and also answering peoples questions.

Management was very – more... lazy and sometimes I did management job. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the city and gaining a friendship with the people who visited the store everyday. – less

Cashier / RX Clerk (Former Employee), Jamaica, NYDecember 13, 2013
Pros: having a set schedule, employee discount
Cons: no healthcare
While working in Duane Reade , I learned most of my retail knowledge there. Especially , on using computers when it came to the pharmacy. The management in the Duane Reade i was working in wasn't as well organized as it should have been due to lack of communication. We had a list of duties in the front desk to let us know what were our task to be done – more... and they would give us more task than can be done during our shift. The most enjoyable part of the job for me would be when i was able to help pharmacy. Because i enjoyed helping customers with their medications. – less

Sales Clerk, Beauty Advisor (Current Employee), New York, NYDecember 11, 2013
I have been working at this job for 3 years and I am completely unhappy here. I work up to 40 hours a week and I only get part-time benefits. I am a hard worker and I've been trying to progress in this company. I am looking for growth and I feel that as long as I am here at this company I will not grow.
