RUEDO – May 21, 2013
Seems more to me that you had a bad experience with management, not the company. They want you to greet every customer, because that is good customer service. The fragrance smelling like a toilet is just your opinion. And 10 pages every week of markdowns seems a bit exaggerated as with shipment, as with this post. I've worked here for 6 years and do not receive that much shipment everyday nor are the markdowns that much. When they are, you get extra hours after the store closes and people help you. The numbers on the markdown help you, working there 6 months I wouldn't expect you to understand what they mean, or have taken the time to learn them.

Worked at Rue21 for three years at a high traffic location. We received stock shipments anywhere from 11-28 boxes in a day, more often on the higher end of that spectrum. So 30 boxes is not that big of a reach. Although during the school year/day when the store is the least crowded, in a six hour shift I could process and display upwards of 12 boxes while passing out fragrance strips. Our store COULD receive anywhere between 8-10 pages of mark downs but that was for all items; clothing, accessories, shoes, etc. and it wasn't every week. Usually we only got 3-5 pages weekly. I will say that while our managers were usually very accommodating towards employees' availability, hours were based on how many fragrances you sold in a week.

my wife is a store manager the expectations the store has for as many people they have on a shift is absurd she works 65 hours a week and is extremely underpaid. Company focuses on nothing but that bad and rids of anything good. Module changes focus on horrible fragrances and the quality of the clothing is just poor. They want a million things done in a day and expect customer service and to make sales when there is simply not enough time once im done with school and get a job she is quitting and i cant wait for her to get out of this company.
