High Pressure and Very Conservative
Style Advisor (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – January 28, 2019
The pressure to sell products to each and every customer at this job is very high. They have a machine in the doorway that counts how many people come inside the threshold and salespeople are penalized if there are not the same number of transactions that day, including when large groups come in together or when people come in and out more than once. Salespeople are also expected to share personal details about themselves with coworkers and management, supposedly to demonstrate their ability to connect with others in a short time frame. The dress code is very strict (must be current, fashionable, hem below knees, no sleeveless shirts, must include jewelry but nothing on the face and no more than one pair of earrings, must include makeup, no dyed hair, no visible tattoos, etc). On more than one occasion, I was expected to take responsibility for a shift that I was not officially scheduled for or that I a coworker had claimed I had agreed to cover without asking me. One more than one occasion, management "forgot" to send me on break.
no benefits for part time employees, stressful environment, poor management, minimum wage, strict dress code
