    I worked at Marshalls

    Pros

    No matter what department you choose to work in, you always have opportunities for bonuses, or rewards, based on the current in store promotions, provided you have the opportunity to work as a cashier. I worked in the shoe department, but I was often called to help with checking out the customers, especially when it was crowded. Each time you ring up a customers' order, you have an opportunity to offer the current in store promotions, and if you meet the requirements, you can get rewards. I started as a merchandise associate, and with hard work, and the wonderful managerial team there that took notice of my efforts, I was eventually offered a coordinator position, which meant more hours, and higher pay. So if you work hard, and take the time to learn your department, there are opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    All I wanted was a full time schedule, which was difficult to get. There didn't seem to be enough hours to go around, and they were constantly hiring new employees, which seemed to contribute to this dilemma. On average I'd say I would get about 10-15 hours a week, when I first started there, but later on, I was offered a better position, and did get better hours.
