Computer Operator II (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – 27 February 2013
Data Center Operations is composed of four shifts working 12 hours per day. Shift changes are at 6:00 am and 6:00 pm and shifts work four days one week, three days the next. z/OS mainframe, iSeries midrange and various distributed systems platforms (Windows, AIX, Unix, Linux and Citrix) make up the production IT environment. Having come from the telecomminucations industry, working here exposed me to the retail fashion industry. There are a lot of loyal, long time employees who have been with the company for many years. There are also a lot of former Sprint employees here, so there were many people whom I was already aquainted with from my years at Sprint. The hardest part of the job for me was the long commute, 60 miles each way. The most enjoyable part of the job were the friendly and supportive co-workers I had the pleasure of working with.
good people to work with, good benefits, opportunity for overtime.
location in topeka, the building is old and seems crowded. retail is struggling in this economy.

Ecommerce Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) – Richmond, IN – 14 June 2012
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to help consumers and they are truly happy and thankful. The hardest part is when they call in extremely upset already and don't give you a chance to help them. The co-workers are enjoyable and easy to work with. They are always willing to lend a helping hand when you need it. The management is great. Their office doors are always open and they are flexible when need be. What I learned was to not let the small things that are uncontrollable get to you. Ultimately, you make the choice on whether or not to let the situation upset you. A typical work day is mainly about answering consumer calls and problem solving to the best of your ability when need be.
