Job Posting said AM Hours, Actual Hours were PM...
Merchandising Associate (Former Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – June 19, 2019
Not all Retail is the same... not really a surprise. I had worked for Macy's when I was in college (in a different store) on the sales floor, so I knew getting an interview yrs later wouldn't be an issue. I was looking because the hours at Best Buy had dropped to basically nothing per week. What I liked about the opportunity was the job posting stated Early Morning Hours, which is perfect for me since I have other jobs that are nights & weekends. However, the times I got scheduled during my 3 weeks there were 1-10 PM's.Now, because I'm not busy every night I could work these shifts. However, there is nothing early morning about a 1-10 PM shift and I knew at some point 1-10's would conflict with my other jobs. For the record it was a Merchandising role, which basically meant during those 1-10's I unloaded the truck that had the new merchandise. The major problem I have was the hours. If someone says 1 thing, and then it's completely different... that does not fly in my book and I left. And, I didn't really get into & won't how bad the environment was in the back of the house. The main reason I am posting this is to make sure people are aware of what happened to me and to hopefully make sure it doesn't happen to them. Will I ever go back to Macy's or any chain that sells clothing? No. As it is I'm trying to get out of Retail all together.
