Sales Consultant, Jewelry in Canton:
Pros: I like my repeat customers.
Cons: A lot of customers abuse our return policy, they make us stay hours after closing to recover the store to "perfection", we are treated with no respect and worst of all we have had no pay raise in over 2 years but our workload has doubled and even tripled.
One Of The Best Retail Places I've Worked.
Customer Service Associate in Bangor:
Pros: The company treats everyone with respect and will work with you for days off. Fair pay for my experience, full time available even under ObamaCare, most associates who are available can get 40 hours and even overtime. Lots of company programs to reward you for a job well done.
Cons: It's customer based so days can be hectic and longer than expected if the store is a mess. Must work nights (2 a week) and weekends. You pay must work over 30 hours per week to be eligible for many benefits and you pay for them still.
