Coordinator (Former Employee), Plainville, CT – February 22, 2014
Pros: we would receive from our company lunches, snacks and awards.
Cons: sometimes not scheduled enough hours to complete a task.
My day would start out by receiving the truck and getting the new receipts to the floor, placing them in their respective departments and arranging them to make them appealing to the eye. Some days would be dedicated to doing markdowns. I would also need to ring a register when i was needed. Always customer service was tops on the list of duties everyday. – more... In my 23 years i was exposed to the numerous departments in the store i had knowledge of all departments. Management and co-workers were just like a 2nd family. The hardest part of my job was building fixtures for displaying and making moves on the floor and on the walls but was enjoyable when the finished product was all set up. The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with the customers, we would get customers from all over CT and also from other countries. – less
Ma Customer Service Coordinator (Former Employee), Braintree, MA – February 20, 2014

A typical day at Marshalls Mon-Thurs will be slow most of the day maybe pick up a little in the evening. Weekends however will be packed with hispanic consumers. I say this because both of the locations I worked at were border towns. I cannot speak for all Marshalls but the ones I worked at customers do not have any shame in throwing things on the floor, – more... opening bottles of merchandise they should not be opening and in all they really feel they have the right to make a mess. To be successful you must have a lot of patience and really like helping people and be able to stay optimistic during rough times. The coworkers age ranged from high school students to tenured associates in there 40's. There is place for advancement within the company but you must excel not only in your area of work, but in all areas of the store. An associate must demonstrate intelligence and potential to grow. Attaining a college degree will really help to grow within this company. – less

On a daily basis you deal with a lot of different variety of people. Which requires an associate for different demands from customers. Like in the Dressing Room. It get real messy and unorganized where as, clothing gets stack up and, what I learned is that if you move in a quick an orderly fashion you can get the job done. Management and co-workers – more... were understandable and very helpful when you need the help. The hardest part of the job was getting the daily task done by the closing of the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got the chance to meet a different handful of customers and co-workers. – less
