Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bettendorf, IA – October 1, 2014
Pros: good discounts
Cons: no healthcare
Typical sales-work duties. I leaned to organize and work together with co workers. Management is management. Co-workers are friendly. Most difficult part of the job would be nothing for me. Most enjoyable part would be interacting with fellow co-workers and customers.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Conshohocken, PA – September 29, 2014
Pros: occasional free lunches
Cons: short breaks, poor management, no teamplayers, 10% discount
Although it has been my first official job and I have learned a lot about retail there are times where I really don't want to go to work. I'm sure everyone says that about their job, but sometimes employees and customers make it hard just to get through the first hour of the shift. Working together is all about teamwork and helping each other out, but – more... more often than not, it's every employee for themselves when it comes to getting things accomplished or how it gets accomplished. Many a-times it comes from poor management, people get hired...but not many of them stick around; they leave or everyone goes on break at the same time making it very difficult to call for cashiers or price checks. The hardest part of the job is the hours and pay. Maybe full-timers get better benefits than part-time but working 4-9 hours only to get $100 and some change at the end of the week after having to put up with the crabby attitudes of customers and employees that set out to ruin your day makes working difficult. Not to mention the underhandedness of some managers. The store is constantly a mess no matter how many times you fix it and service with a smile doesn't always exist. Even worse no one wants a TXJ rewards CREDIT card! – less
Marshalls has a joyful fill every time you walk in. Whether as a employee or a customer. While working there I have learn a better and new way to approach and appease customers. I have a better understanding for how to maintain a work relationship with associates and managers. Not everyone will become a friend but they all will be respected. The hardest – more... thing about working here is to give constructive criticism. Not everyone knows how to take it and use it for the better. The most enjoyable part of that job is getting to know the customers and being able to help out. – less

A typical day was working my department and with customers. Patience and dedicating proper time at Marshalls was key. Some co-workers were amazing while others dreadful which was the hardest part also. Most enjoyable part of this job is very unclear.
Associate (Current Employee), White Lake, MI – September 20, 2014
A typical day at Marshalls was servicing customers to make sure all customers were highly satisfied with their visit. There is also marketing the in store credit card, and any other promotion or charity event the store is holding/sponsoring. I learned how to remain calm during high stress times. There really isn't a hard part to this job, so I'd have – more... to say the hardest part of the job is training yourself, because the management team didn't always give me all the details needed. I really love the fact I was able to teach myself how to do my job better than the management team expected, and I've never had an unresolved conflict with a customer. (Who always left as happy, if not happier than they were before entering the store.) – less
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NY – September 19, 2014
Pros: great lunch room, good venting machines, microwaves and lockers.
Cons: rude and not attentive management. never called me back for y interview.
I would start my day by picking up all the toys on the floor left by children. Afterwards I would find the right place to put the toys, making sure all the puzzles are together, all the teddy bears on in the bins, all the books are facing the front with the title. My co-workers were nice and caring. Everyone in the store would often find things that – more... did not belong in their area. The coworkers in the bag area would find a teddy bear on the floor and bring it to me to put it in the right spot. I enjoyed working in the stockroom, putting tags or price numbers on items was fun and easy. The hardest part of my day was children playing with balls in the store. I would have to tell "Please do not play with the ball in here." Many times they did not listen. – less

Clocking into work before the alarm sounds. Then a group meeting about making revenue, safety topics etc. Learned how to manage time and work with a sense of urgency. Management at the warehouse are very fair also the employees are friendly and helpful. Hardest part about this job is being active to bend, lift, and move quickly allot of physical labor – more... but he enjoyable part is work parties and appreciation you get in return from the company. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), DALLAS TX – September 16, 2014
Pros: paid weekly
Cons: short breaks
ITS A PRETTY RELAXED ENVIRONMENT FOR THE MOST PART. BUT WHEN ITS BUSY,ITS BUSY. IT CAN BE JUST A LITTLE FRUSTRATING AT TIMES TRYING TO DRIVE DONATIONS FOR CHARITIES AND ASKING EVERY CUSTOMER TO SIGN UP FOR A CREDIT CARDS. THE EASY PART OF THE JOB IS MAKING EVERY CUSTOMER HAPPY AND FEELING COMFORTABLE.
