Pay is terrible, stress on employees to get credit is awful. The customers can be annoying too because they believe they are saving money with those awful coupons. $8 per hour is a crying shame. Please go work somewhere else. The amount work of work placed on the store is too much and stressful.

My reason would be stressed on credit and hours. They give you hours based on how many credits you made. My managers were an awesome team of people, but the stress they put on you about earning credits made you literally want to sit in your car and pray before you come into work. I got little to no hours which would be a minimum of possibly 4.5-7 hours for that WEEK. Then one day I had got two credits and all of a sudden I was scheduled to work 13.5-16.50 hours. The system is just all jacked. My DM came in the store one day and barely acknowledged who I was.

Poor management, little recognization for your work unless you pursue people to get a company credit card.

No communication. Have seen DM once in 6 months. No touch bases, nothing.

Goals change from day to day, ZERO recognition.

The pay is low for all the things you have to do. I worked in an outlet store a million dollar store and my pay was 8.15 an hour.

Dm is inappropriate. Gossips about all employees from different stores. Turn over is high from 3 to 4 store managers a year. Most just walk out without a notice.

The work you have to do is ridiculous. Very low pay and no benefits except a discount.

The worse job I have ever had. They want you to change the signs everyday like a constant head ache. Get ready to walk around for endless hours with no break....The customers were coupon hounds and never wanted to pay the regular price. No fashion promotion at all. So that means they did not have any value for the brand. Absolutley no benefits and really bad pay. They will call you a Junior Manager so you can open and close the store and not be able to leave the store because you are responsible for the flow of the place.

Well I did leave, and that was not only because of school but also because I actually moved to another state.
