a laid back, but hardworking company.
Pros: laid back, adequate breaks, great supervisor
Cons: rude guests, not the best management
I only worked at Herberger's for a short time, but my time spent there was excellent. I enjoyed the people I worked with, and I loved working in the home department. The job was a little laid back, but we did have rules to follow. We had a strict dress code of wearing all black, which I loved because it looked uniformed, without having to wear uniforms. Everyone was very helpful, and would take time to help if you had questions. I did hear some complaints from coworkers that they didn't like the managers, I personally had no problems. I didn't have a difficult schedule to work around, and I only had to call in a few times due to illness. My direct supervisor was the best. He made sure I knew what I was doing, and would help me any way he could. My job in the home department wasn't difficult, it was just being able to deal with moving around product, putting out new and existing product, and giving great guest service. I think the hardest part of the job, was dealing with rude guests. Some people don't know how to not snap back at a guest, but I always "killed" them with kindness.
