    BAD DECISION.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Stein Mart

    Pros

    Steinmart has decided to open on Thanksgiving...from 5pm-10pm. For a company that prides itself on being so customer friendly (all of a sudden) perhaps it's time to be a little more friendly to your INTERNAL customers.
    All year long we are the ones on the front line of the battlefield, we deal with the customers, we deal with the ever changing sales and promotions that would baffle even the most seasoned executive manager and we deal with the constant badgering and belittling from the higher ups when sales goals and profit margins are not met, yet the accolades are few and far between...And now you take away Thanksgiving.
    Is it not enough that starting the day after Thanksgiving our personal lives become non - existent for the next 2 months? Is it not enough that for us there is no "holiday season," there are 2 holiDAYS and you just cut that down to one?
    I sincerely hope your profits from 5-10 pm are worth what you will eventually be losing because this decision is not sitting well with anyone, and there will be fallout.

    Cons

    This company is becoming increasingly hard to be loyal to, and loyalty can be everything. The pay is mediocre at best, raises are trivial, and now you take Thanksgiving.

    Merchandising Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took only a few days for an interview date and time to be set up. The interview was brief, not even 15 minutes but the interviewer was very kind and easy to talk to. I had a good feeling about getting it but left the store pretty sure it wouldn't be the position I signed up for. I thought I'd better ask if what I applied for was actually available and was told they don't just hire into that position which is fine but had I'd known that in the beginning, it could have saved me a lot of time. There was still hope though and couple days after the interview I received an offer.
