Don't Bother With This Company
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – June 29, 2015
I have worked at several different Dunham's stores, and they all seem to run the same way. They will do the bare minimum required in order to make a dollar. They'll schedule the least amount of people so that everyone's running around like a chicken with its head cut off and not able to help all customers in the store. If things are broken, but still usable, there is no need to fix them. We had janky things - broken locks, torn extension cords (a safety issue), broken fitting rooms, etc. They don't hire people who know their department - they just hire who fits the payroll, and do not allow for training hours. It's kind of a "learn as you go" job, and you'll only know how to do it right after you do it wrong first. No one is held accountable for their inaction or lack of work ethic - in short, some people are allowed to get away with not doing their job and others are not, and have to work twice as hard. The employee discount does not work on sale items, and customers receive coupons for the same percent discount that employees get - so you really don't even need to work there to get the same discount. Also, plan to get several, "Are you the only person working right now?"s from customers because the staff likes to disappear.
laid-back atmosphere, no breaks if you're a cashier
