I applied online and in a few hours I was emailed to schedule an appointment. 2 days, later, when I got there, the store had little business and a few employees standing alone at their stations or stocking. I was on time I may add, there was nobody in the office to greet me and they seemed unprepared for my arrival, telling me I should have let someone in the back offices know that I was there waiting to be interviewed, as if I were in the wrong. It seemed weird to me that I had to do such a thing. It was 7 minutes later when a staff member came to get me for the interview. I already felt insulted and irritated, doubting if I should stay, wondering if I should even consider working for a company who treats people like they don't care at all.
It was 10 minutes, a very quick and informal process. He introduced himself, seemed nice, read questions off some papers, asking about my job experiences and working in a team. I immediatly knew I didn't get the job without even being told, even though I was well dressed and have plenty retail experience, because that I mostly worked in retail independently, so answering the team questions were difficult. He also asked me how I would convince someone to sign up for their card, which wasn't hard since I've done that at previous jobs. He asked about my availability, I said I was free, even during holidays and I joked that I could celebrate a holiday anyday. He told me that there was one more applicant he needed to interview and most of the positions were filled. After the interview. Unsurprised, I got a rejection email the next day. I'm not sure if it was the location or bad timing, but I will never consider applying again and will not recommend this place to anyone. What a waste of time.

Facility manager found my resume on here, lol. We made an appointment to meet at the food court for an interview, then he gave me a tour of one of the many stores I work at today. I filled out application and he said he'd get back to me in about a week, he had other interviews to do. Week later I got a call and he said I was what his team is looking for.He gave me an hourly offer and I accepted. I love my job. Coming up on 5 years now.

Challenging to get a full time position and when they are available it is only temporary and then back to part time. Most of the executive team is leaving after 10+ years of service and being replaced with people lacking those qualifications. The work environment has one person servicing the customer, cleaning the floor, checking fitting room and doing fulfillment while watching multiple zones.

It is too warm in the warehouse where you walk around and pick orders that were places online. I wasn't allowed to use a personal fan on lanyard that was breakaway. I need it because I'm sweating moving for ten hours and only sitting down 3 times for two 15 minute breaks and half hour lunch. My fan breaks away as well as the lanyard with ID they gave me to wear. I'm going to talk to them again about allowing me to wear it. There's no reason to make people sweat all day doing their regular job indoors.
