The environment is cut throat coupled with inexperienced store managers and district managers breaking the law when it comes to their treatment of the associates. It would be considered a hostile work environment...

I have worked at multiple Kay locations. But I ultimately left for better opportunities. I was always happy at Kay, and even worked it as a side job next to my normal day job just because I enjoyed it. I ultimately left because my other job was a high stress 100% commission sales job, and Kay paid me barely anything. I was working too much and something had to give. They offered for me to come back as an assistant manager recently but I ultimately declined because I make much more in my current job and they can’t match the offer. I keep considering going back because of how happy I was there, but ultimately the pay is so much less I really don’t think I want to.

Part time with no retail/sales experience starts like $8.50/hr do NOT worth it. Getting promoted from part time to full time will give you at least a $2 raise. Even when coming back as full time even after having over a year of experience with the company I was only offered $11.50 and after being back a year had no raise at all. Sucks! You do get commission but unless your in a high volume store where everyone is hitting their sales goals every month or during December don’t even count commission as anything towards your pay. I’ve seen full time employees hit their sales goal and still get $20-$50 commission for the entire month. Look at commission as a tiny bonus every month
