In the 7 months I worked there, there were 4 HR managers. I had to repeatedly tell them I didn’t want any cashier shifts because the scheduling people kept changing.
The managers are not at all understanding of the fact that people have lives outside of work.
One of the managers fired someone for not being in dress code BEFORE she started her shift all because the manager disliked her and all the people she hung out with. That same manager tried to fire someone else because she wanted to have a civil, adult conversation about how we all felt about how the managers were treating us unfairly.
The managers also expect too much from us. They can’t just expect ONE person to keep an entire fitting room clean when A) it starts out with 3 carts full of clothes, B) it’s a busy day and 10 customers are putting clothes in there all at once, and C) they have to also cover breaks at the cashier or help with the line and are stuck there until there aren’t any customers in line. It’s unfair. We’re not superhuman.
Important to know before you work here: If you do a closing shift, you’re staying there until the store is clean. There have been several times where we have stayed until midnight to clean up the store (we close at 9). Also, you can’t get out of it even if you’re a minor.
occasional free food (thanksgiving potluck), 25% discount w cash or penney’s card, all of the other associates were all so nice
manager turnover, managers that aren’t understanding, not enough people scheduled, have to stay after store closes for at least an hour, not allowed to take 2 breaks for an 8 hour
