Rude Managers like to OVERWORK their employees
Retail Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, NY – September 16, 2018
Working at Charlotte Russe seems like a valid option for any girl over the age of 16, but it's really not worth it. The store I worked in was disgusting, cramped, it stunk, the clothes had to regularly be damaged out, and if you worked seasonal closing like I did... good luck getting home before 2am. Girls working there had to beg for hours, and if the 'shift' manager didn't particularly favor you... good luck with getting approval for a taking someones shift, time off, or more than 10 hours a week. They were constantly scheduling me to work during my school hours (which quite honestly is a form of sabotage). If anyone dared to complain about the hours they were getting, said shift manager would just assume that you don't like working. I've gotten harassed by male customers and forced to take my only break an hour into my shift instead of a manager having security escort him out. I've worked over 6 hours without meal breaks. I've stood on my feet until 3am closing when we were supposed to leave at 10:30pm. I've gone for hours without using the bathroom because I was working in fitting and they were understaffed. In all honesty, working here isn't worth your dignity, time, or mental health. All of this mistreatment will never be acceptable or worth the cheap clothes or perfume you get 'discounted' as an employee.
unstable income, hours on your feet, barely any meal breaks
