Poor upper management. Very high expectations for the tasks at hand with the massive payroll cuts. My store was cut hard, despite being one of the highest volume stores in BC. Challenging to keep up to the enormous shipments, promo changes every weekend, tagging, merchandizing, condensing, web orders, etc .. Despite everyone being completely burnt out... Despite the unrealistic sales targets, if you don't make target, your store will be cut hours the following week. Which creates MORE stress for everyone in the store. Part timers leaving because they cant get hours, and management burning out due to lack of payroll hours and increased workload.
If you want a thankless stressful job, that pays terrible.. Go for it. But seriously.. There is a VERY GOOD REASON why Shoe Warehouse and Shoe Company are ALWAYS hiring.
High turnover is the norm in this company.. Perhaps if they respected and paid their associates better, then they would retain more of their hires
The particular store I was in, was toxic. Mall is close to a tent city, mall management/mall security do next to nothing to keep retailers safe. Having to deal with dangerous crackheads and junkies every 15 minutes is hard on everyone.
Just keep scrolling! There's much better out there!
30% off staff discount, Good training and ongoing learning modules, Asst. Managers and first key holders are eligible for sales bonus if the store makes target
Stressful as you are working alone much of the time in a very large store, The amount of tasking required does not balance with the payroll hours, Management usually ends up doing most of the tasking, on top of our own roles, as there is literally no payroll hours to have an associate do it.
