Steinmart employees work hard and barely get paid
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: become really close with co workers
Cons: low pay
I started working at Steinmart part time for something to do while I was in school. My 20 hours a week quickly turned into 40 hours a week. I told management I could only work part time and they refused to listen to me. Also, VERY stressful environment! I was the only person that worked in my department. Management refused to give me another person to help. It was impossible for me to get set sales, put out merchandise, and take care of all the daily task as one person. When I failed to complete a task I would get "talked to" by management. It was impossible to do everything as one person. I was also disappointed by management. All they did was sit in their office and gossip, or listen to music. They don care about their employees. I feel like steinmart could be a great place to work for, but it has a ways to go. I think the pay is severely low for the amount of work that is required.

Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Portage, MIJanuary 20, 2015
I really appreciate the effort of team work that is put in from my fellow employees. It makes my job and everyone else easier and a joy to come to work. We as a team are able to get what we need accomplished and rank high in our district and overall the number one retail chain in the country as a company. I am pleased to have the opportunity to work there.

Not the best
Cashier/Ladies Dept Associate (Former Employee), Granada Hills, CA/New Orleans, LAJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: hour break for lunch, co-workers were close
Cons: disrespectful and judgmental managers, low pay, stressful environment, repeat customers are a pain, no one looks happy to be working there
The management was always talking behind the employees backs. Always spoke about no fraternizing, yet my manager was having relations with another employee. Your hard work is never appreciated. Managers would talk down to the employees and make them feel as if they do nothing, when most employees are extremely hardworking. They have a "better than you" sort of attitude. Customers can be very irritating about coupons and discounts and will often argue with cashiers about it. Coupon system is constantly changing so customers become confused and frustrated with us. This store allows customers to return EVERYTHING even used bras and underwear. Although I enjoyed the job security and knowing exactly what I needed to be doing at all times in my department, the stress added onto you by the managers and crazy customers wasn't worth it. I wouldn't recommend working here unless you want to feel like you're in high school all over again with all the drama and gossip. Nice job at first, but once you see what goes on, you'll be begging to leave. Had this experience at both locations I was employed with.

This is a good place to start a retail career.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJanuary 13, 2015
This is a competitive place to be. A lot of people shop at Stein Mart. If you want a good steady job, then Stein Mart is definitely it. Great training is here as well as a community of coworkers that feel like family.

Nice company college friendly flexable schedule
Merchandise Manager (Current Employee), Lafayette, LAJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: flexable, good pay, and good work atmosphere
Cons: no room to grow in management, only one store
Steinmart is a very friendly and diverse work place. The one thing that stand out the most for me was my ability to have a flexible work schedule. The hardest part of the job would probably be meeting daily credit card goals. The most enjoyable would be the friendly atmosphere. During a normal work day everyone is so willing to fill where needed and help each other out. My only problem was that there is only one store here in Lafayette so there is no more room for me to grow with the company. Over all this is a good company to work for very college friendly work schedules. Steimart also promote from within on a regular basis but it is difficult here in Lafayette because there is only 0ne store in this city.

Productive but Stressful
Customer Service Lead/ Cashier/ Receiving (Former Employee), Beaumont, TexasDecember 26, 2014
Pros: 1 hour lunches and paid vacation for full time
Cons: management and organization
Stein Mart was a wonderful place to work but were pretty unfair on how they gave out hours and also on how they treat their employees. The one year that I worked there a total of 20 or more employees left because of the way the managers talk to them.

As far as upper management goes, it was not a great place to work. I loved the customers and my co-managers and employees, yet the management made it unbearable to work there.
