Great job, but doesn't pay enough
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Texas – June 16, 2019
My store manager was fantastic, as were all of my coworkers. Despite my irregular schedule being a student, my SM always made sure my requested days off were granted.
There's not really a training program. You learn as you go, and it's not that difficult once you get the routine. Customers were always really nice. Work consisted of restoration, cleaning fitting rooms, taking calls, cashiering, and helping customers to a higher degree than most retail stores.
I would've loved to keep working there, but I left because I wasn't getting paid enough ($8.50/hr). It's just not competitive nor sustainable. I would bring in $20,000+ worth of sales to the store every month yet I'd only take home like $300 every two weeks. Having to sell jeans and dresses that would take a whole day's worth of work to afford felt incredibly disproportionate and unjust. Most of my shifts were only 3 or 4 hours long because they needed someone to help close. Maybe for a high school student, something like this is suitable, but Torrid hires only 18+. Unless you can get yourself higher pay, probably look somewhere else if they're hiring associates.
