This is a place where it is "Do as I say, not as I do, and DO NOT, under any circumstances question ANYTHING you are told to do." They don't even like it when you question a directive so you can understand the who, what, why and how of the directive. They do not encourage expanding your horizons so you can move withing the company or grow as a productive employee.
no salary increase for 3 years, potential bonuses were not paid out in time.huge employee turn over.company reputation is not very good.no chance for career advancement.employees are overworked and underpaid.outdated systems in use.
long hours on PDC events...no overtime pay
in terms of schedules. when you ask 1 month ahead for your requested off and manager still give shifts on the day of your requested off!! it pissess me off because she said ok i will mard it down to the fact that we posted our vacation request on sheets besides where they put the schedules.
The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. At. All. Very poor communication and zero organization. The entire place thrives on crisis management, and, if on the occasion something actually went well, it would certainly very soon fall apart. You could be fired or promoted at anytime depending on the mood of the room. So-called “meetings” would go on for hours and hours with no end resolve, and if a final decision was ever made; it would surely change direction the very next day. Chaos, pressure, gossip, hostility, employee turnover (usually employees taking legitimate stress leave) run rampant. If anything was ever questioned, the solid company motto is; “we’ve been doing it this way for over 50 years”. I witnessed a ton of skilled, quality people come and go. I suppose though, if you have very thick skin, can turn a blind eye to a LOT, don’t mind being criticized for minimal pay while having your time wasted, you may have a chance of survival.
Adrenaline rush on a daily.
Your overall health will suffer.
I worked at a Nygard Fashion Park for 5 years and throughout that time witnessed numerous managers come and go, filled in for management twice (once as a PT sales associate for 5 months, who worked 44 hours a week and was then denied a FT position that was publicly posted). Many of the women I worked with (who were the best part of my job and what kept me around for 5 years) had issues with HR or upper management and then would be walked out instead of having the issues addressed. I was owed a retro-active raise for 14 months due to taking on extra responsibility in tough times and NEVER saw the money. If you end up at a location with a solid manager who will stand up for you, its not so bad.... but otherwise... applicants beware.

To many long tenured employees afraid of change
The manager here is terrible she have split personality. We have to meet our goal for the day which is impossible. Management don't support the people that is working very hard to meet up with their expectations. Poor salary offer. Keep looking for a better job. There's no career advancement.
Free clothing credits
Not enough hours
Expect a lot from lower management, company does not give you the tools you need to be successful. if you want them, it comes out of your pocket. Follow ups with superiors were never answer. Money was horrible for what was require. Customers were the best part of the job.
No raises, expectations were unreal
Wage 11.40 no raise even after a year Employees negative due to the way they are treated by area manager Turn over very high Environment air conditioner broke over 3 weeks now... it's over 89 on some days...very poor quality of air and no fans brought in Area manger very disrespectful/rude to staff and talks about everyone behind there back, lies to staff and her boss...and she steals cloths...karma will bite this lady in the behind Recommendations to work there Absolutely NOT!
