Great if you have the patience and positive attitude
Service Associate (Current Employee), Hurst, TexasSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: flexible weekends, decent pay
Cons: short breaks, bad scheduling
Stein Mart is a great store when you aren't dealing with rude and over privileged customers. It is a high end small store so you have customers who are there almost everyday and those who just see the sale sign and come in. They almost always schedule short and never give you a heads up in your schedule. Great co-workers but terrible customers, but – more... that comes with the territory. – less

Former Asset Protection Coordinator for SoCal
AREA LOSS PREVENTION COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Yorba Linda, CASeptember 13, 2014
Cons: everything
Stay away from this place. The District Asset Protection Manager for Southern California is the worst manager living on this planet. It is him and his little lap dog (stupid girl who is another AP Coordinator). You will do all the bad assignments and have the stores furthest away,while she and he boss you around in a non professional manner. It is very – more... clear that the manager and his lap dog are having an affair. They also talk smack about other people. The lap dog left her phone in the office while she stepped out and the manager was texting her talking smack about me and others in the company. At least 20 have held the coordinator position posted here since I left. Work here if you must but be aware!! – less

Staff Accountant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLSeptember 9, 2014
Until they are fully integrated in the transition of the old guard, I would stay away. The culture is similar to high school cliques where the popular groups caused problems for other people/groups. In the accounting department there was a predominance of women. I have no objection of women in the work place or management, but the accounting department – more... consisted of 90% women. best part of the job was the pay. Management wasn't that effective, I'm surprised there isn't any accounting anomalies or re adjustments. – less

Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Seminole, FLAugust 17, 2014
Pros: hour long breaks, helpful and friendly store manager
Cons: the distance (moved to clearwater after a while) with drive time
Fairly good days of work. Good co-workers that are willing to be backup cashiers. Manager is very kind and helpful and was a great teacher for training. The hours were well balanced and the work environment. The hardest thing usually when it comes to the job was the heavy flow when tourists were in town or when we had a 12 hour sale. Lines would be – more... all the way back to the store and it became nonstop. But in the long run it kept me busy which made the day go by faster. – less

Okay Place to work
Home and Shoe Department Lead (Former Employee), Beaufort, SCAugust 14, 2014
Pros: employee discount
At Stein mart I would clock in and go to my department to see what needs to be completed during my shift. The management showed a lot of favoritism towards certain employees. My coworkers were mostly pleasant.

Pros: great place to start, friendly environment
Cons: low pay, asks a lot for a little
a typical day at work consists of signing in and reporting to your manager for tasks to be fulfilled. then you help customers and are on call for register help. then you will be provided with a break. Once that is done you complete the rest of the day and recover the store when it closes

Productive work environment
Store Associate (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 31, 2014
Pros: free lunch provided by the store gm from time to time
Cons: difficult to change schedule if other plans arise
I was a sales associate in the Gifts and Linens Department, and I occasionally covered the Shoe Department while the associate was out for lunch or out of work for the day. My job entailed creatively stocking products on the sales floor and assisting customers in a polite manner regarding the product they would like more information on.

Management – more... and co-workers are there to assist each other. Everyone helps each other out especially during closing time when some departments are not able to straighten and clean the department. The employees want to get out on time so everyone works together to complete the task. Management brings in food from time to time and provides employee appreciation with nice perks. Sometimes it is difficult to change schedules when other plans arises due to the dwindled employee base and economy; some days I am the only worker covering my department as well as other nearby departments. – less

Ladies' Department (Former Employee), Plant City, FLJuly 30, 2014
I dealt with customers in person and over the phone. I had to keep the merchandise on the floor organized and the fitting rooms cleared. I did the mark-downs for the clothing and I helped customers find their desired items when needed. I learned better customer service skills. Management was strong. My co-workers were wonderful and positive. The hardest – more... part of the job was not having a set hour schedule. Everything else was wonderful and enjoyable. I loved the co-workers, the job description, and the environment. – less

Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 20, 2014
Pros: you receive experience that's it.
Cons: doing more than what your job title requires
Overall the empolees were undertrained and underpaid. This company lacks appreation for their empolees. They are treated with no respect and yelled at. All management with this company is horrible that I have met at least. They expect you to do a lot of things that are not a part of your job tilte.
