Boring and hard place to enjoy a job
Kmart (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: friends made
Cons: the bosses
A typical day at work is putting up with other co-workers non sense and helping others fix their problems. I did not learn anything from this job, except how to tolerate others attitudes. Management is horrible very disrespectful and bossy. My co-workers had more respect then the bosses. The hardest part was dealing with the wrongful treatment. The most enjoyable part was the friends I made.

Breath Of Fresh Air
12345 Clothing Boutique (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 7, 2014
Pros: 40% off clothing!
Cons: no healthcare, short breaks
Working for this company, I have gained knowledge from the manager himself as well as other staff members. Allowing me to creative in the workplace means everything to me. I am able to dress/style the mannequins, and store the way I feel will draw more customers in, as well as it being appealing to the customers. This Boutique is full of life and color. I also, learned a lot about high end designers I never knew about and the history of the store brands we carry. Being the only boutique on Traction Av (Art District) is sometimes hard to keep traffic steady, but we use social media to gain more customers, as well as our online store. A day at 12345 is always upbeat, from photo shoot, to different artists coming in to play music. Its always a day to talk about!

Sales (Former Employee), springfield,maApril 4, 2014
Pros: good work enviornment
Cons: favoritism
a typical day would be clocking in, then grabbing a box of shipment clothing and processing them, if i was on the register i would clock in count the money in the register proceed with customers. Helping customers i love to do. management was sometimes not inforced with the rules from the store. there was no hard part in the job because i was well trained to do my job. the most enjoyable part was working with good employees, dressing mannequins with my own style and most of all helping my faithful customers that would often come in and look for me to help them.

Inspiring and productive work place
Artist/ Retail salemen (Former Employee), Berkeley, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: making art, meeting new people, free lunch, co-workers
Cons: only paid 75$ every month if she had the money, manager never there
Working there was fun to get the day started we would began with creating an art piece if there were no customers. And when the customers walk in I would greet them and tell the customers that the holidays coming up and persuade them in to getting shirts,shoes etc for their loved ones. The manager wasn't always there so in was run by a whole bunch of students. She only came on Fridays and she would usually bring lunch every Friday. The hardest part of it all would have to be shaving down wooden chairs. But the part I enjoyed the most was being able to express yourself and being able to take things seriously but also having fun.

Intense environment, No collaboration, just dictatorship, oppressed management
Assistant Manager/Full-Time/Part-Time (Former Employee), Payless Shoe SourceDecember 3, 2013
Cons: expectations are intense, and do not balance with the salary.
Managers, as well as District Managers, expect you to perform their similar job duties, and company expectations with little or no training. Also, the pay is no where near in reflection of the expectations. The management are dictators and ask for everything with no rewards, or compensation in return. Part-time sales associates are worked like"dogs" and make minimum wage. The raises are not more than 10 cents a year. Therefore, these are the reasons why they have such high turnover rates. They spend more money in hiring, and recruiting new associates instead of attempting to increase their retention rates within their existing team.s The company is closed minded and not open for new ideas, or a new growth that can instill a positive change, and growing future for their company.
