Great company
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 18, 2014
Over all I loved working for this company but when they decided to close the store in my home town and transfer me to another location, that just got to be a little too much for me.

Productive, organized place to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hattiesburg, MSMarch 14, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of clocking in, customer service unpacking freight boxes, merchandising items, checking out customers, doing returns and exchanges, and cleaning up at the end of the day. Everyone worked together to reach the daily goal. The most challenging part of the job was managing time to get everything done while tending to customers – more... on a busy day. The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting the customers. – less

Horrible Place to work
sales associate (Former Employee), MAMarch 4, 2014
Cons: inadequate training, very low wages, no hours, too many on call shifts
The training is horrible. I was put on schedule for 2 shifts, 4 hours each because they don't have hours in payroll, but still hiring more people. Mandatory on call shifts 4-5 days each week that I have to call them 1 hour before shift and see if I am needed- they don't call you. Manager can change your schedule without notifying you in advance. You – more... will have no life if you work here. – less

Not ideal
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee), Poughkeepsie, NYMarch 4, 2014
This company is not for someone looking for a career. Management is sub-par, even in corporate. They're very quick to point the finger at someone else before taking responsibility. My co-workers are nice, mostly because they're all around my age. Corporate expects you to meet a ridiculous credit card quota each week, without offering incentive for applying.

Starting to lose focus on the customer
Store Manager (Former Employee), MichiganFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: great customers, fun and affordable clothes for kids, great benefits package
Cons: no work/life balance, no support from upper management
Over the past few years the company has mad several changes. They are now completely focused on operations and not the customer. Their philosophy is, get the product on the floor and it will sell itself. The payroll model has been cut down to no more than two people working at a time, which means both people working will be ringing up customers. In – more... the meantime, all other aspects of the business fall to the wayside. If you want your business to stay afloat, the store manager (only salaried person) will work around 70 hours a week, EVERY week. Also, there are literally NO extra hours for anything. No training hours, no floorset hours, no shipment hours, etc. – less

Full of challenges to improve the store, but lacked upper-management assistance.
Store Manager (Former Employee), South County Center MallFebruary 27, 2014
I enjoyed the daily challenges that came along with bringing a store up to its potential. I handled all the human resources responsibilities including interviewing, hiring, training, and motivating new talent, as well as developing current talent. I loved helping my customers find more than they were looking for and making them loyal with excellent – more... customer service. My attention to detail allowed the store to have an impact from simply walking by and then easily finding all of our products. I have the positive attitude that was essential to driving the team with processing shipment, executing floor sets, and impacting sales. – less

Fast paced environment with stocking and customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZFebruary 17, 2014
A typical day at work is fast paced with a lot in demand. If I am not helping somebody out I should be cleaning or stocking or unloading as long as my hands are full all day. My co-workers should feel comfortable asking me for help and working as a team as well as alone. The hardest part of work is when you are assigned something new and it is not well – more... explained. The most enjoyable part is going home knowing you earned every single dollar you get. – less

Fast paced, challenging work environment with a few major flaws.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: short breaks, unorganized supervisors, and often had no direction when working.
The work environment was fun, fast paced, and kept me on my toes. However, the hours were already short (as were the breaks) yet the manager kept hiring more and more people. They were very unorganized in keeping track of hours and were also very impatient and didn't properly set aside time to teach new employees policies.

a day in retail
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Fort Walton Beach, FLFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: store discount
Cons: need more hours
my typical day at work consist of me processing shipment, greeting customers, offering customer services, helping customers shop, offering coupons, cashiering. I enjoy helping customers shop and save money by offering coupons. There is nothing hard about my job. We are a bunch of women with different personalities with one man among us but we seem to – more... manage. – less

Good employee discount
Sales Associate (Current Employee), FloridaFebruary 8, 2014
Regular sales associates are expected to train managers that are brought in from completely different companies. The workplace is stressful and they ignore associates availability. The co-workers are awesome. I learned that unfortunately it's WHO you know, not WHAT you know.
