A great fun work place where you have lots to learn from working in retail.

I always greeted every customer coming inside. Helped put out new trends amd changed wall fixtures and manniquines. Made sure all customers were helped very well. Always made sure they found what they came in for!

When I worked I was under the age of 18. It was a seasonal position. It was my first job. When they figured out I was new and nervous to the P.O.S. system, they decided I would be better front-facing the store and I never got to prove myself on the P.O.S. system again. Management was a joke.There was one solid manager that wanted to see all her coworkers succeed. The others didn't care and if something came up where you had to call off a day, they would label it as a no call/ no show. Would I go back for minimum wage? For sure no.
PT Manager (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – August 15, 2018
What kept me at this job for 4 years are the great people that I have met along the way. It was a little sad to leave but at the same time, the pay was not taking care of my bills, especially not enough to save and I was a manager. If your young, in college and your parents are still taking care of most of your every bills or in high school this would be the perfect job for you
No benefits, no real breaks, low wages, hours were not guaranteed
Great staff and great opportunities to move up in position.
Full Time Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 15, 2018
Rue 21 was a fun place to start off as my first job. I was always learning more about the business side of things then just customer servicing. For the three years that I’ve been here I can say I never had a bad moment at rue and they always worked with me in advancing further.
30 minutes breaks and having to sell fragrances without compensation
i loved this job beyond words could ever explain. i loved that their mission was to strive on letting the younger generation have the freedom to be whoever they wanted through style and fashion. along with the lines of accessories and fragrance and not to mention rue beaute.

rue 21 is a place to work if you have nowhere else to go, or just want to gain a few months of experience in retail/customer service. It is hard to sty there for more than a few months but it is doable.
Dear Corporate, Stop sending the stores so much merchandise when there is literally not enough square footage to out it all. No wonder it is such a chaotic mess.
Good luck rue 21.
Nice coworkers, lots of overtime
No break room, terribly disorganized, staff stretched too thin
