I worked as a key holder for about 5 months now. When I got hired, I enjoyed it because we had an amazing Staff for such a small store. However, when new management came in, the store changed into an almost intolerable environment.
To keep it short, I requested a transfer, same with the product manager and the new hire is quitting
Management is what makes or breaks up the team and is shown as an example in the location I worked
I honestly hope the new team hired for that location can bear it I honestly do.
The new location however is just well run because Its all about management. The staff and manager works together well to achieve the main goal for sales and just having a blast.
Shifts are flexible and if the location you work at doesn't accommodate the amount of hours you want, you can definitely get hours in other stores that need an extra man therefore there would be little to none in shortage or cuts in shifts.
*another plus point in working in other locations is that people in the company would know you better and increases you work ethic as an employee For the company.
Sales depends on which location you work in. The higher the volume, the better chance of commissioning out. However, you get more stressed especially in women's wear.
Breaks are great because you get 1 hour break for a full 6-8 hour shift, 5 hour shift is 30 min and 4 is 15 minutes. Therefore, you get about twice the length of breaks than most other stores that offer.
All in all, I do enjoy working for this company and they do have their ups and downs and I believe it solely has to do with the – more... staff that makes the experience enjoyable or utterly abysmal.
I don't plan on leaving anytime soon because I am pretty loyal to this company and I do have more ups than downs working here. – less
