Store Manger (Current Employee) – Hopkinsville, KY – 16 November 2017
A great company to work for, I enjoy my team. I love stock day om Mondays, we get about 200 boxes. Its like Christmas, you don't know what your getting. The hard part is getting all of the shipment out in two days.
It's very unfair to its part time employees. Sometimes we are asked to work with out pay, it feels as if family emergency do not matter or that they are an inconvenience. There are no raises for part timer no matter how much work they put in.
1st Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Cullman, AL – 16 November 2017
Overall not a bad place to work, low pay and unpredictable hours, not compensated well for overtime, relaxes environment though and good workers and training, I was in college and my hours were not flexible
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – League City, TX – 14 November 2017
The company its self sucked they wanted you to get 30,000 things dont in the span of a work day. It wasnt worth the money, and on top of all that you couldnt exceed hours. Bottom line they didnt pay you enough for what they wanted done. But all that aside i did work with a great team.
minimal hours and very low pay for part time associates and long overworked hours for management with very low compensation
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Asheville, NC – 8 November 2017
The job market is so competitive in Asheville NC and Cato Corporation does not pay their employees within the average pay scale. The turnover rate makes working in a set enjoyable environment very difficult and strained. I as a manager I have to cover shifts from 9am- 9pm some days. Work weeks are very long and only one weekend off a month and through November to January no weekend's off are allowed for management. A very stressful place to work for only $35,000 annually.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – 5 November 2017
I did not like the work environment or management. I am well aware that i wasn't treated fairly because Georgia is an at will state allowing manager to abuse their position and treat co-workers poorly.
working for cato was a plus because i am a plus size lady an i just enjoyed helping others plus size ladies that was in need of assistance with building there self-esteem. and learning more about the quality quantity and pricing of cato plus size clothing.
break in the back room as well as lockers and restroom

Cato is actually a great company to work for. The only downfall in this small clothing store is the pay. The managers don't get paid very well for all the things they do for the store and they aren't paid overtime. The employees welcome you with open arms at Cato and they are so sweet. While working there we never really had any dissatisfied customers, most people left out pretty happy with the deal they just got.
Since I worked part time only about ten hours per week, I have been exposed to retail clothing, have been able to apply more customer service techniques, This has been shown with assisting customers choosing styles and colors for coordination. The hardest part of the job cleaning the store for closing.The most enjoyable part is interacting with staff and customers.
Loss Prevention Auditor (Current Employee) – Carolina, PR – 24 October 2017
This is a great company to work for. The upper management are understanding and helpful. I enjoy working for this company immensely. The pay could be a bit more competitive, but the benefits and growth potential help outweigh the negative.
