Lack of leadership, low pay, constant pressure from management, no training.
Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Mission, TX – March 20, 2019
Once hired, you are expected to know policies and store procedures already. They will not train you, or willingly explain things to you. If you ask questions you are seen as a burden. Management will extend or shorten your work hours at moments notice. Coworkers are not welcoming or helpfull. If you get on managers bad side expect rude comments, ugly looks, and disregard for you completely as a person. Store does not comply with osha safety guidelines. Work load is piled on with no regard to persons capabilities or safety. Example you will be expected to climb ladders while carrying heavy objects with no help, or sharp tools such as screwdrivers etc. Expected to move heavy objects with no help. Management will willfully boast that they make people quit. If you have family or children do not expect management to understand or work with you if any tragedy or unseen life event happen. Example once a coworkers primary family member passed away manager literally did not care simply excused the reason as " well we are short staffed today." While working at this department store I literally felt mentally and verbally abused and my morality was diminished purposely. Overall I would not recommend this position to anyone.
Although I post discounts as a pro, you don't really receive them unless you've worked here for years. And the 20 percent you do initially get is not worth, the degrading treatment you will definitely receive.
