Pros: they will work with you on your availability, some weeks there is a decent amount of hours
Cons: you will be hired part-time and given no benefits, no opportunity to advance, low pay, micromanagement, unrealistic expectations, no coverage and lots of people calling out or not showing up without being fired, so so many more
They are always doing interviews because the turnover rate is so high, which says a lot about how the employees are paid and treated. Granted, the turnover is high in most retail jobs but at the store I worked at it was outrageous. We had people the management made quit in less than one week on several occasions. No one in their right mind would do – more... the jobs of ten people in five hours while being talked down to like school children the entire time.
The single most irritating thing about this job are the ridiculous safety policies. You can't even touch a frigging two-step ladder without getting approval from an MOD. Yes, this is how short of a lease you are put on. No joking. The rules are in fact completely arbitrary as is proven when the store is too busy to follow their spotter system, which is one person bringing down merchandise on one side of the store while another watches them from another. These rules go out the window during the holidays when every single associate is tied up. This shows that they are unnecessary, just another way for the management to degrade you.
The management will talk for hours to each other or to customer service and then complain that you are not working fast or hard enough. It is incredible to me how they can do this with a straight face.
I won't even go into detail about Beyond store orders. If you read this review and still want to apply at one of their stores, then you will come to love management talking like parrots about Beyond store orders, literally many times during your shift and in front of customers, regardless of how successful you are in getting them. Then again, if you are that desperate to take this job, then you must have more to worry about than stepping into this hellish nursery. – less
