Loved seeing the behind the scenes of the Apparel world and learning what goes into getting things ready to be on the sales floor
Apparel Coordinator (Former Employee) – Plano, IL – June 22, 2017
Enjoyed the work I did and learned so much about the Apparel world on my own since the managers didn't really help much but when you work in an environment like that place it's too much drama like high school and the managers played favorites which is unfair to all employees
Seasonal Associate (Former Employee) – Winchester, KY – June 19, 2017
Very busy everyday, never had any help and had to do everything on my own. The management was very awful and are very lazy and all co-workers agree. The worst part of my job was I had to do everything because no one else would do it and the best part was meeting new people.
helping customers non-stop and filling the shelves with product. Learned how to operate a forklift. Management was nice, we had multiple store managers within 3 yrs. you work with some pretty good people but they work the good workers to death and allow the lazy ones to continue to be lazy. Trying to stay calm and not walk out from them expecting you to do a million things in a short period of time. I really enjoyed the people I worked with and others not so much.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – WV – June 9, 2017
The amount of work expected is in no correlation to the pay. Constantly understaffed. No work/life balance whatsoever. Long hours, especially on weekends. The company doesn't stand behind it's employees.
Worked very hard, loyal, never missed a day of work. Company takes you for granted and they run their distribution centers with a clique of 4-5 people who run the show. Management responsibilities are not equally delegated. A lot of micro-managing from the home office. Unappreciative and unethical. HR over Warehouse & Transportation posted publicly derogatory comments on social media about a disabled America veteran. CEO Alex Melvin seems to have the right vision in mind but the wrong managerial team in place to succeed. Salaried employees get worked like slaves, I read these reviews before I got hired and decided to take a chance. There is no room for growth and if I were you, looking for a management position, I would look elsewhere. No job security- they will fire you when it's convenient for them.
Work/life home balance- NO home life, slave drivers- High school atmosphere

Apparel Associate (Current Employee) – Hartland, MI – June 7, 2017
Recovery of department straightening folded and hanging clothing, keeping shoe and toy departments neat and orderly. Customer assistance and processing returns. All employees are required to clean public restroom at assigned times, sweeping floors in the building, and assisting all departments in stocking and staging. We work well as a team. First company that I have worked for that doesn't use credit they pay for everything with cash and family owned.
Manager (Current Employee) – Morganton, NC – June 3, 2017
This has to be one of the most poorly run retail establishments I have ever worked in. Upper management have no idea how to treat their employees and have no respect for their department managers. Schedules are changed without notice and no one has the decency to inform you so you are reprimanded for situations out of your control. The customer service of most is terrible, granted so are many of the customers as they "expect" detailed answers of products that are new to us and are very impatient but there is no need to belittle a person when they have a simple question. Management also seem to get a "kick" out of making their employees feel stupid in front of other fellow employees and customers when communicating on the radios. Communication is slack and things change with little or no warning. To-do lists are given to each person at the beginning of the day and are expected to be completed. These notes are irrational and impossible for one person to complete, when they are not it falls on the department managers alone and not ALL employees as it should. The department managers never get any support or help by upper management and are wrote up or fired for not doing the job of 4 people. Many items are not priced or priced incorrectly and the inventory is not match what is actually in the store. The system that is used to price and check for inventory only works for a certain number of devices and does not support the entire stores need which makes the job difficult and does not make for happy staff or customers.
