Lead Co-Manager (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – January 2, 2017
Overall if you have a team striving to achieve goals and sales, then you have a solid foundation for success, and i found that in Charlotte Russe, only thing is people move on and take what they learn from their superiors and apply it to wherever they go.
Agaci has a warm and friendly environment. The store functions with order and great management. I learned how to deal with Irate customers maintaining a professional demeanor. The hardest part of the job was learning to successfully balance my time with work and school. The best part of the job was teaming up with the cu-workers to provide the great customer satisfaction.

The promise of being promoted will keep you there longer than the barely minimum wage can afford. Management is highly toxic and forces sales associates to do ALL of the managerial work, including payroll.
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
Plague is curable, the low class attitude at A'GACI is not.
Never work more than part-time hours
They don't pay you for any work time over your 30 hours
They would treat me like a slave, Making me work over 30 hours a week, and I’m only 18!! Management really sucked, as they would never help me when I would be the only one working at the shoes with 72632537 customers going up to me. All that I liked from working there was the discount and the nice employees.

I was an associate here for almost 3 years. I loved most of my managers and they always tried to do what they could to be flexible with all of our hours. However with the company, they never really gave a raise until it we were supposed to get one, county wise. I was stuck with the same pay for 2 years. It took me awhile to realize I was putting in so much work for such little pay, but I always brushed it off because I made friends with the people I worked with. Nothing was hard, it was basically customer service, registers, etc. If you've worked in any retail store before, they're all basically the same.
I loved working in an environment with loud upbeat music because it was a great motivation help upsell the merchandise sold at agaci. Team was great and I learned a lot from awesome great teaching managers.
Floor Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – September 2, 2018
I worked at AGACI for two years and I very much enjoyed it. It was fun and there was many opportunity to be creative and be yourself When it came to dressing mannequins working floorset or helping out a customer or just the dress code your personal opinion definitely mattered. The only thing is within my time of working there I learned a lot of shady things that was happening within the company itself. I learned about employees with wrong full termination and employees that were just doing things that were not morally correct. When addressing this issue to corporate they did absolutely nothing about any of it and completely turned the other way. Other than that the overall job itself was fun.

Working at Agaci was great. It is a good company to have as a first job, but since it doesn't have much benefits for employees in the long term it doesn't seem pleasant to keep working there. The company is based surely on customer needs and it does not take into consideration what the employees need. Hard work deserves to be rewarded.
A typical day is about 5 hours and you'll be zoned to fitting room, floater, shoe department, or cashier. I learned many things such as how to do returns and exchanges, visuals such as changing mannequins, floor set, and inventory. Management was cool before they changed over to a new one. Management told employees she was there just for extra cash. There isn't a hard part of the job honestly. If you have no experience then it will seem like a bit much but once you get used to it, it is a breeze. The most enjoyable part is meeting new coworkers. One thing that was very annoying was managers only cared about making day and they would remind you every second to force customers to buy things.
