Amazing discounts and great people but no advancement
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Olympia, WA – July 12, 2018
AE is a great retail job for someone looking to work part time while they are in school but after that, it becomes a dead end retail job. There was no room for advancement beyond a sales associate without relocation and even if you receive full time hours, you won't receive full time benefits without a manager title. The company does treat its employees well, though, with a 401k plan, amazingly unbeatable discounts, and a fun work environment. The AE managers gave me the opportunity to try out some basic visual merchandising once I had gained some tenure with my store which was not only fun, but made me feel valued.
