    Pros

    Great company that actually cares about their Sales Associates, flexible hours, friendly people, and happy upbeat environment. Also, paid orientation and you get a raise after working there for 6 months.

    Cons

    You have to learn every job.

    I worked at Marshalls full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly customers for the most part, good company values, insurance is possible to attain. I was always treated professionally in general.

    Cons

    Compensation is very low for the amount of work expectations, training needs to be better, favoritism, customers are very untidy in store, much employee turnover. Extra workload falls to staff on duty when there are excessive call-outs among staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More fairness among employees who are loyal to the company, better scheduling. Expect more professionalism from employees. Better ability to keep store staffed.

    I worked at Marshalls

    Pros

    The staff was very close, friendly and fun. We all worked very hard. The benefits were decent, no issue with time off except you had to be in the office on Monday, do or die unless you were on vacation. The company was very respected in the market.It was alot of fun negotiating huge purchases.

    Cons

    There were alot of management changes which were frustrating, as everyone had a different way of doing things!
    Some had poor leadership skills and were even nasty to their secretaries!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the top management people, who are probably retired by now, could be very dictatorial.The original group that hired me were great to work with and had great knowledge about the business. When it was rumored that the company was being sold, I left and returned to NYC.

    Pros

    Equal starting pay for minors and adults. Opportunity for pay raises. Flexible enough schedule. A typically good environment.

    Cons

    If customer service isn't your thing, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been working there for a year and a half, received a pay raise, but when minimum wage changed I lost the pay raise. I now make as much as new hires, which is infuriating, because I earned the raise.
