Support from management
During the week typically it's only 1-2 workers and a manager. DO NOT expect the manager to help even if it's a mess.
If you are the last person to come in or not a "favorite" they will give you the WORST area to clean without any help.
Seemed great in the beginning... that feeling won't last long.
This company is made by "favorites". From employees to DMs. And yes you will know if you are not a favorite.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There is only two categories, either they like you or they don't.
Overall compensation for your work
Would you like to go 1-3 months without pay? Then when you finally get your first paycheck it's not even half of what you made??
Office / Work Environment
The store is unbearably warm. Spiders are constantly found in clothing racks. The backroom is nearly a death trap (loose fixtures).
During high school the manager would schedule me 35-40hrs. Once my grades dropped I had to cut back to 15-20hrs, which my manager was not happy about (we only had 4 associates).
Once they start hiring, you might as well start applying for a new job.
(The store is inside of a mall) They DO NOT close their doors during fights no matter how chaotic.
Suggestions for improvement
- Treat your EMPLOYEES with respect and offer a higher pay wage.
