Sales Associate- Make (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – October 2, 2013
Pros: 25% on clothing, great people
Cons: always busy no matter what time of the day.
I made sure to sell any clothing or advanced payment going on at the time. I learned to greet customers because it makes them know that they are valued, and to let them know that if they try to steal we acknowledge them enough to warn police. Co- Workers were very nice and chill peopled. The manager was always hard working and helped me with any help – more... I needed. Hardest part of the job was leaving it for what I thought was a closer and more beneficiary job. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – July 29, 2013
A typical day at work was fun and easy. I learned a lot about how to set up retail stores and merchandise clothing. The management kind of worked backwards, but it was not too difficult to work with. The co-workers were kind and easy going. Everyone got along great. The hardest part of the job was meeting deadlines of spontaneous company decisions. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the co-workers and the feeling of accomplishing a whole floor set and the store looking great. – less
A fast paced environment with always something to do.
Full time Shoe Sales Associate (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – June 10, 2013
A typical day at Melrose is, number one, customer service. Making the customer feel comfortable ands assisting them with anything they may need. Our daily tasks such as, shipment and completing an event, for example setting up the store for a promotion on colognes or Men's attire for Father's Day. Our management is great and are always there for our – more... needs, to answer questions or to handle an issue. The hardest part of my job is maybe trying to accomplish everything in one day because the person I am, I do not like to get behind on anything. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I am going to work with people who are a team and knowing I am going to accomplish something through out my work day. – less

A tipical day at work was organizing all the clothing in the floor. Put them in racks in nice, neat and in order. I learned how to be a cashier. My co-workers were all female therefore it was a very comfortable and fun place to work at.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Houston, Tx – January 26, 2013
Pros: the discount
Cons: forced 1-2 hour lunch if no sales, pay, management, little to no hours at first, overwork you once they know you are a good worker
A typical day involves you either being a greeter, on the floor, or a cashier in order to provide customer service. The job is not hard and of course you'll deal with difficult customers as expected of retail. Management clearly plays favorites as they will not advance you unless one of their workers leaves and then they are forced to move you up. Some – more... people have been stuck as greeters for over half a year , not once moving up as cashier. The company expects high sales on very slow days and you are always lectured as to why they you are not making sales. The hardest part of my job is when I pretty much run the store. I am only a sales associate but when they see you working hard, management and coworkers pile the work on you because you are new and they know you will do it. If it does not get done right or at all, you are the one left in trouble. The enjoyable part was helping customers and picking them outfits. The pay is only 7.25 and you will only get raise after a year--or even two-- years of work. Not worth the hard work. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – September 25, 2012
Pros: seasonal games played such as scratch offs.
Cons: breaks were short, had to do all the work on a short period of time.
typical workday employees have to do everything managment only gives orders. I've learned that there are better companies out there but the staff you work with is really friendly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with ghetto customers all the time no matter what location it is at. The most enjoyable part of my job was deinfatly getting that staff – more... bond with your employees. they work you hard til the point where your family is the staff and you become close to them. – less
