No work/life balance, low pay, long hours
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – July 5, 2017
Be prepared to work long hours regularly, eleven hour days are a standard. The systems, training videos, computers, and equipment are extremely outdated and unnecessarily tedious.
As in most retail settings, it's moderately fast paced, and you're encouraged to push the Store Brand merchandise, instead of the name brand things, because the profits are higher.
You will work late at night (eleven or even midnight) and/ or early in the morning (six or seven a.m.)
Management is constantly changing, and you're constantly understaffed.
You can move up fairly quickly, but the pay isn't worth all the extra hours and sweat you'll be putting in.
