Loss Prevention Agent / Customer service manager (Former Employee) –  El Centro, CAJune 18, 2018
Pros

Best part of working in retail is if your a people person and love interaction with others this is a place to work.

Cons

Downside is that sometimes with all the experience you have it sometimes makes you a target for other employees who are there just to go through the motion and get paid, rather than see others promote to a higher level.

Advice to Management

Sadly I heard that the management team when I was there are no longer at the location. New management need's to work on their people skills

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Palmdale, CAJune 15, 2018
In my opinion DD's expects too much for minium wage.
DD's is always talking about respect. However it is not given to their associates. The expectations are unobtainable.
DD's is a crazy place to work.
Pros
flexible scheduling
Cons
Crazy hours.Hours not regular.

Stock Associate (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 9, 2018
A typical day was unloading the truck and putting each product in its required place. I learned about retail and gained the experience behind a store. Management was really strict everything was timed and was expected to do in the fastest way possible. The hardest part of the job was staying on time with everything but it was also a great way to get better each day.
Pros
Productive, friendly co-workers, decent hours
Cons
not enough hours

Good first job
Retail Sales Associate/Cashier Full-Time (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 8, 2018
DD's Discounts was my first job and it has been great for me. Management team is straightforward and tell you what they expect to be done. Having a great team makes daily work enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is honestly the customers, you'll definitely have some customers that make it almost impossible to help, but know that as long as you keep yourself together and you're following procedures, your management team will have your back.
Pros
20% discount, double discount (40%) every 3 months
Cons
No set schedules; they change every week, Being short staffed far too often

Decent part time job
Stock Person (Current Employee) –  Grand Prairie, TXJune 8, 2018
Decent part time job, if your in school or have another job. The management needs to work on communicating with their employees. Very unorganized and hectic at times scheduling needs work.

Not enought hours
Stocker (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 7, 2018
They do the schedule and then they change everything, they call you your days off, and the they cancel your workdays.
It is an easy job, not stressful , but they do not give you enough hours, just 15-18 per week.
You have to have another job to live.
Pros
20% discount
Cons
No health insurance...all sales asociates and stockers.

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Chula Vista, CA 91911May 21, 2018
It is a good job if you are a student they are quite flexible and most work around your class schedule. Most supervisors are nice but there are so many changes the company has to make in order to make it a better work place environment and to make all employees feel appreciated.
Pros
20% discount year round and 40% discounts 3 times per year only for Ross employees

Mod plus
Manager (Current Employee) –  Ontario, CAMay 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.
Pros
Get discounts and flexible hours
Cons
relocate constantly (management), no communication, stressful, no hours, no back up (cashiering), and no bathrooms.
