Retail Associate (Former Employee) – San Fernando, CA – January 30, 2019
First of all, they don't give you enough hours. They'll give you maybe like 10 to 20 hours a week and that's only if you are really fast. The manager has favorites so a lot of times is not even about the work you can perform. They always pick their favorite to be employee of the month. They don't wanna give you raises either. And you can be there for years in the same position because if they see, you are really good at something they don't wanna move you to a different position. Most new girls are the ones moving up, which is not fair. Some of the assistant manager are very lazy. They don't wanna do anything just to stand there and look cute. Some of them don't even how to do certain things like how you properly process clothes or shoes. They don't know anything about sizing or where things go in the store, yet they are managers.l don't recommend dds discount as a good place to work if you are trying to make money.
In empowering the role as Stock room lead I learned leadership skills and how to manage others according to my jobs standards and still working in a fast moving environment. I had to manage between 4 to 10 people at a time all while maintaining the flow of the work place, side by side with my crew, involved every step of the way, so that I could be hands on with them getting the job done effectively and as promptly as possible. And being in retail or as in any job for that matter the hardest part would be keeping up in such a fast pace in such short time so it lacks communication because everyone is striving so hard to succeed at their daily task and it becomes very tedious. Not much time for fun but working in the stockroom has its benefits, and I would have to say that would be the most enjoyable part of my job, the people that I managed and how well we worked together as a team and everyone having the same goal ultimately!
free food every once in a while, friendly co workers

My experience at Dds discounts started off very strongly and positively. However, it slowly became a hostile work environment. I was trained at the beginning and less than 2 weeks later was threatened with a write up and a pay demotion for not doing the online training fast enough. This company needs much more training to each and every staff member. This company also needs more reasonable financial compensation.
Front End Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 4, 2019
Days are generally 8 hours for full time employees. Health care is available at a cost and includes vision and dental benefits at an extra cost. Coworkers are fun and knowledgeable and management is flexible for needs. Advancement (promoting from within) is encouraged by corporate.
Working at this company included attitudes from the people in the front of the store (cashiers, SPS, fitting rooms), and the people in the back of the store (stock). There were times when managers praised people who did a good job, but there were also times when managers would get attitudes instead of acting professionally.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – August 8, 2018
Although this job pays $11 an hour you don't get many hours. so, i'm still seeing minimum wage size pay checks. no benefits for part time employees except for 20% discount when you shop. Not a lot of room for career advancement. I love the managers and all the area supervisors everyone is nice and understanding. the hardest part of this job is accepting when other people are doing it wrong. if it's not your job don't worry about it cuz it will stress you out.
$11/hr. Nice managers. Always something to do so you're never bored.
Manager on Duty (Current Employee) – Palmdale, CA – October 14, 2018
You learn a lot about customer service with the diverse shoppers that come in. There is room for advancement but regular associates get very little hours and there are almost no benefits. The scheduling is pretty flexible. But not enough payroll to schedule the amount of employees needed to complete work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – January 14, 2019
Flexible hours, friendly co-workers, managers are strict but very nice at the same time. I loved working at Dd's, but I just wanted to try something different. I highly recommend working there, especially if it's a full time position in orders to get benefits.
Area Supervisor (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 3, 2018
my day at work is ok, I have learned to manage the time of working as a manager. the workplace culture is very positive, the great part about the job is customer service and helping associates get into development to grow within the company.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 29, 2018
Management is cool with you taking days off, they encourage you to make the best effort even if the pay sucks. Select people get so many hours a week while I see other people barely get a day of work at all and that's mostly because we'd go over payroll. Cool environment to work in and management is awesome but don't rely on making a lot of money even if you request more hours. I'm not even sure if it's worth it waiting for my yearly raise and if it weren't for the awesome and understanding supervisors and store manager, I would've quit a long time ago.
Paid lunch, awesome management, fun
Little pay for how much you contribute to the store
Manager (Current Employee) – Ontario, CA – May 15, 2018
DD's Discounts give all associates a 20% discount for all transactions made which makes it a good thing. DD's is a high volume and fast paced retail store. All corporate members communicate different information, no one is on the same page. All associates work really hard and no compensation. Backup management gets paid the minimum wage as the other associates.
Get discounts and flexible hours
relocate constantly (management), no communication, stressful, no hours, no back up (cashiering), and no bathrooms.
dds discount was a nice place to work but the one I was at only hired part time and temp workers . since I had to move I had to quit my job but overall it is s nice job with nice pay. the only thing I didn't like is the little hours i was scheduled to work

Area Supervisor (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – August 30, 2018
upper management focuses on negative and certain managers dont hold associates accountable. full time associates and managers are scheduled 37.50 not 40 hours a week. only positive is schedules come out a month in advance and yearly bonuses. payroll is not consistent and most of the time schedule cuts are made which make managers work twice as hard. documentation is never done in this company. anybody can call out arrive late leave early because upper management doesn't care unless it happens on their shift.
Fairness from associate and managers. career growth from within is hit or miss
