What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
I was a part time employee at KJ Fashion. I worked at this job for 8 months.
I've had more of a negative experience here than positive. Now where do I start.
Upon hiring I was told that I had to address my boss as "Captain" they told me and I quote "you dont call him boss, not owner, not by his name. It's Captain"
and I swear he got a joy out of all the young girls calling him captain. There was no such thing as safety regulations. In our storage room we had ceiling high shelves full of merchandise, we weren't required to use ladders they encouraged us to climb up the shelves to get to the merchandise. Also the shelves were lined with paper so if we stepped on the paper we risk slipping and falling. And these shelves where HIGH!!! I've had countless times almost falling off the shelves.
They would make us work 5 mins before our shift but we wouldn't get paid for it, I've worked on my breaks countless times, there's been days where I didn't get a break, or our breaks were cut short because we got busy and wasn't maken up for. When "captain " would show up with new bags he would make the girls get the bags and carry his personal belongings just because he didn't want to. He would call us over as if we were dogs such as snap at us, etc. They only hired Koreans for management. They fired a girl because they found out she was pregnant. I once witness a girl coming in to the store to apply and as soon as she left "captain" told one of the manager to not hire here because she wasn't pretty enough. He was greedy when it came to the ac. We would work in horrible conditions when it was hot during the summer months while he kept his office well air conditioned.
It was not a safe environment to work at, we were constantly getting stolen from by customers and he expects us girls to stop them, one morning we came to the store with bullet holes on the side of building. There was no room to move up. And overall it's an annoying stressful unsafe environment. I would not reccromend this job
