Pros: Dedicated associates
Cons: Pay, DM, benefits, life and work balance doesn't exist
The company expects so much from people that it gets out of control. There's no support from upper management, opposite- you're expected to do it all for such a low pay. Visuals every month. One week you have girls visual, next week guys, an third etc. on top of crazy markdowns, shipment, table changes, racks changing, no space but fit it all. there's always stuff to do and not a lot of time in a day so you end up working overtime. They make you own an Instagram to post things from your store, yet they don't pay you for that. For such a low pay they expect you to do things as you would get paid over 70k. The DM was just plain horrible. Very unprofessional, will lower you with her words, will micromanage you and threaten with write ups on conference calls. With managers quitting left and right cause of DM being so rude it's a no brainer... And God forbid you don't kiss her lower back, you're out. She will destroy every single bit of you. Will make you cry and pretend like it's normal. Shipment is nuts but manageable. Overall higher staff than DM was great. Days are busy, pays are too low. Rue is one of the lowest retail pay companies so what do you expect. If you're working as a sales associate go for it, but not management. Honestly, just not worth it.
