Freedom to work independently

There has been a lot of micro management lately from the district and regional managers

Internal Communication

They started the thumbs up program where employees can recognize each other for various reasons

Career Development

It feels like people are more likely to be hired rather than promoted from within

Overall compensation for your work

Given the number and tasks and job requirements it definitely needs to be higher, at least at a living wage. Having been with the company for some time as a manager associates shouldn't be able to start at a dollar or two less. Especially when it takes

Office / Work Environment

In location the temperature is controlled from Georgia and often not in line with the weather in Virginia, register system could use an update

Work-Life Balance

A lot of blackout dates where vacation isn't allowed. Management usually only allowed one weekend a month, with some weekends being blacked out. Your shift can start anywhere from 8 am to 1 pl and end anywhere from 6 to 10 pm

Company Image

Some days yes, others not so much

Challenging Work

Number of tasks required to complete are far greater than the number of team members

Suggestions for improvement

  • A company standard of when stores should close early, close for the day, or accommodations that can be made when employees are facing severe weather.

What I like about the company

I am fortunate enough to have an amazing team.

What I dislike about the company

The micromanagement of the stores. How loss prevention is more focused on the employees. The unrealistic expectations of shipment processing or markdown completion when store is staffed with less than 4 people per shift.

  • I would give every person a hook when they first walk in so that they can reach the stuff on the highest shelfs without having to ask.

What I like about the company

The positive perks of working at citi trends is the costumers. Some of them are very nice and understanding and nice and just want to get in and get out but others like to take their precious time and be a pain just because but others don’t know that their being annoying so you just have to understand.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of how the manager just sits back and watches people tear up the store.

Suggestions for improvement

  • District Managers not turning a blind eye to store manager are doing. Listen to past employees when they just quit without reason.

What I like about the company

I was able to get hired on quickly. Initially you get the hours wanted but not for long. You get penalized if you work more than the scheduled hours once the hours are set.

What I dislike about the company

Store management level being able to change the schedule without consulting employee first to be sure they can work. Also store manager coming in when they get ready regardless of what is on the schedule. Store management walking around talking to friends and family on the phone.
