    I have been working at Stein Mart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Company has more like a family athmosphere from the regional directors to the managers in the store. Not like any other big box retiailer.

    Cons

    Pay ok but lower than a lot of other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Seems like the company is trending upwards.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview Details

    After completing the interview process online for a new store in my area I received call to come into the store for an interview. The person who was interviewing me arrived a few minutes late which was aggravating since because the store was not open I was waiting outside. The interview itself was informal, especially since it was conducted on folding chairs in a building that was still under construction. After what I would rate a as a distinctly neutral interview I was told I would receive a call back within several days. I called a week later and was told to call back again several days later which I did and was again told to call back several days later. At that point I moved on.
