The established Sales Associates at this store location are well-versed in the store's procedures and are very willing to help guide and teach newly hired associates. Cashiers are also expected to not only assist customers at check-out & sign up customers for the store's reward program & credit card, but to also juggle putting fitting room clothing back on the racks throughout the day. This is frustrating to customers who look for quick check out and availability of cashiers. The managers might consider hiring part-time employees who do nothing but check fitting rooms, put clothes back, and straighten displays throughout the day, versus having sales associates stay after the store has closed to perform these tasks much less take them off the registers during the day. Managers are interactive with the employees and quite approachable, however some managers tend to openly air employee issues in front of other employees which is unprofessional and awkward for the employees who overhear the conversations. Hourly pay is low for the expected job tasks compared to competitive retailers for the same amount of work. Overall, the Sales Associate position might be a good part-time job for students or adults who want a second income, but is not a job condusive to career/company advancement.
