    Overall good place to work!

    Fitting Room Associate (Former Employee) Snellville, GA (US)

    ProsGet to meet new people and have fun helping the guest find that perfect garment or accessory. Great hours and they will work around your life and/or school hours. Nice management and team members.

    ConsI didn't like pushing the Marshall's credit card on people. If I asked a guest if he/she were interested and they said no, I didn't persist with the offer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Convenience

    Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) La Verne, CA (US)

    ProsWorking in retail isn't for everyone and is definitely an acquired "taste." Marshalls is for students or people that need extra cash. If you go to school, they work with your school schedule and are pretty reasonable when it comes to hours and dress code.

    ConsIf you are trying to be independent, working as a sales associate is not the way to go. If you can't handle unreasonable people this job is not for you. The biggest cons about this job is the pay (not enough to live independently) and the communication skills of management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are multiple managers in each store that are in charge of different aspects of the store. Therefore, it is very important that you communicate important messages and ideas to all of them. Because whatever you tell one may not be told to the others. For example. if you tell one manager that you cannot work a specific day because something came up, it may not be communicated to other managers so when the day comes one of the other managers may assume that you are still coming in and when you don't, it is a strike against you.

    Wonderful

    Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) Sacramento, CA (US)

    ProsThere is a real team effort and strength within the Marshalls I worked at. The managers were kind and friendly but were not afraid to take control when they needed to. It was a great place to make friends with co-workers and gain experience in all areas from customer service, fitting room attending, merchandising and even loss prevention.

    ConsI do feel like the employee discount was so small that it was barely noticeable on majority of purchases. The employee discount was only 10% but there were several times a year where they would have bonus discount days where the discount was doubled. It just seemed like a pretty low discount in a store and gets so much in sales.

    Cashier

    Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) Newburyport, MA (US)

    ProsFlexible schedule for part-timers going to school. Managers are team oriented and care about their staff for the most part. The store I worked for was like a big family.

    ConsThe pay is extremely low and there is not much room for growth. The work is easy, but it can get boring if you don't take it seriously.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow more promotions or at least help associates make goals to be motivated to do their work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good place to get customer experience skills!

    Pros-Learn how to use a cash register.
    -Learn good customer service skills.
    -Learn how to do markdowns, department recovery, etc.
    -Very good company and they promote you for your good work.
    -10% discount at T.J. max and Homegoods .

    Cons-They pay minimum wage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need a better salary for all the hard work we do at front end. Change the registers or do a update to them that will allow customers to look up their credit card info to pay. Also provide benefits since we start working.

    THE BEST BOSS EVER

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Marietta, GA (US)

    ProsHe is a great motivator, fair, challenges you to do your best. He makes work fun and always tells you good job and reconizes you for your good work. He is a great leader and this is one of the best jobs I have ever had because of the way he runs the store. I was very impressed.

    ConsIt is hard for me to say anything negative about working at Marshalls on Rosewell Rd. only because he made it a great place to work even when I would feel bad personally he would ask if everything is ok he is concerned about all his employees. I would like to say personally I have no cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile following protocol I believe you get more work done and less call outs when you have a great manager like Mr. Hiawatha

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
