Very racist. Very critical. Expect you to do all the grunt work without giving you enough hours to live off of. Work every weekend every holiday. Manager will take her life problems out on you.
If an opportunity to work here presents itself, don’t walk away.... Run away. The culture is designed around a year end bonus that is pre-determined. Then throughout the year, they look for ways to penalize you to take the bonus away from you, a little at a time. If you are late (even 1 minute) for your shift, you are penalized. If you make an administration error, any little thing, another penalty. I creates a bizarre and toxic culture to work in.
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outdated systems in use.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.

To many long tenured employees afraid of change
We did the usual work for a womans apparel store and should have been paid MORE. The most enjoyable part of my job as a amanager was doing out of store events. Would have liked MORE support from HO on organizing them.
lovely work environment
long hours for management
If you are self motivated, it can be a great place to work depending on SR Exec you report to. I was giving many opportunities to take on different challenges. But as a former peer said, you need to watch how close you get to the sun.
Highly motivated people can make a difference but very demanding
Long hours & poor culture
Not a good place to work .Stay away. No hrs, management are bullies. Expected to work alone with no break if you work a long shift.Sales goals are too high and not realistic. Lucky if you get one , two shifts a week.
Costumers. Some of the clothing is nice. Coworkers.
You never know whats going to happen. No hours. Min 3 hrs shift if your lu cky.
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.
