Pros: good employee discount
Cons: managers, disorganized, too busy, fitting room, blamed for theft, heavy stress, low pay
I enjoyed cashiering. That's about it. I felt "rewarded" the first 3 days I worked there, got "TRUE" associate cards in response to a "good job" for what I did. But, as soon as I missed a day (I couldn't work because I had to go to the ER!) After that..no rewards. Notta.
Great employee discount for shopping, but poor return policy, and got turned down for a pair of sandals that didn't fit!
Co-workers are fake and flaky, and will turn you in at the drop of a hat. I was hired at "$7.50/hr" which is close to min. wage for the state, and later called back at "$8. hr" to "bribe me", even though I knew that was what the real wage was.
I was cashiering and expected to "catch" a tag-switcher while checking them out, and it made me look bad....instead of the LP (Loss prevention) person to DO THEIR JOB, they made me do it.
The managers were way too strict and "fake" because they like you for a few days, then hate you when you miss work. I was fired for no call supposedly. Too strict on their dress code, and not sensitive to my school schedule, always tried to keep me working closing shifts! And really didn't care when I had some major life issues and couldn't come in on a certain day. Even when I changed my schedule, they cut down my hours to nothing. AND when I was cashiering, they nit-picked me, even though I was so fast, they wanted me to do it "item at at time", then "take off the security tags", "then take the money".
When I was on the floor, I was also being "called from one end to the other." Straight from floor, to fitting room, to cashier, then to fitting room. Not cool, keep – more... me on one or the other! Oh..and the fitting room? Forget it. You miss one day there, they'll fire you. And if they don't like you, they'll put you there. And they can potentially blame you for loss, when you don't pay enough attention, and there are people stealing in the bathroom or fitting room, even when you have 20 people waiting in line to swap out items or put back their clothes. Ugh. Do yourself a favor and don't work here if you can help it. It won't get you anywhere, even if you kiss a or do a great job at everything and smile all the time. The manager had been there 13 years, and I'm sure it's because she doesn't have a life. – less
