My store had great management , great teamwork and great success
Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicopee, MA – July 17, 2018
My store was a very successful one from the start due to our location and the great management , but not all stores are like this. Ive worked in 5 Marshalls stores in the course of 3 years and all but one was a mediocre experience. The management is what makes the store , honestly. Without a good team of coordinators and managers , any store will crumble . But management here is fantastic and supportive and keep a cheery attitude even through long grueling shifts. Pay is ok and vacation time could be way better but the free catering , breakfast and parties they throw for the employees make up for it somewhat . Significantly more and longer lunch breaks than most retail chains offer , and I've been promoted through the company 3 times and gone through a home goods Marshalls removation , but you must be a very hard worker and show potential and work with managers one on one. Hours are decent around 34-40 hours a week consistently . Very leinient about time off. Workload can be heavy so you need to be fast paced and very organized as well as very good at customer service. Working at Marshall's isnt " what you see is what you get" , it's more of " what you put in is what you will get out."
Some stores are very messy, disorganzied, low to no vacation time until after a year, low full time pay, few raises, low raises, sub par benefits package
