Accepting and friendly workplace with stressful moments
Part Time Key Holder (Current Employee) – Connecticut – July 12, 2018
I did have fun working at Torrid, and I have made many friends and acquaintances during my time here. There is a 40% discount for all employees, which is helpful since they want to wear the clothes if possible. The dress code is fairly flexible. The hardest part of the job is doing customer returns and troubleshooting when things don't go as planned, as well as changing the full body mannequins (they are very heavy). I moved up to a management position fairly quickly, so as long as you work hard, there are plenty of opportunities for advancement. One thing I did not enjoy was how quickly the management and associate employees left to find something else, somewhere else, or because they were terminated. Personally, I had four different managers and three different district managers, and I have been there for less than a year. I was also working full time hours as a part time assistant manager, and was carrying out tasks that were not in the job description of my level, and was not getting paid enough to do so.
no benefits, somewhat inflexible management hours
