They could not pay you enough for the emotional labor you have to do at this location.
This place is like your elderly great aunt who lives four states away, well meaning, will send a gift basket when you graduate, but when something real and difficult happens they never seem to answer the phone. I worked at the location in Lakewood for several months, I gave so much effort into that job I gave myself a leg and back injury, and I wasn't even 20 years old yet. The manager and assistant manager at the time (when I was hired and up until I stopped working there) were very kind women, however they had just taken over the store and had very little control over the employees, specifically the key holders. 1 key holder in particular, who had been managing the store while there was a lapse in management, had several of their friends hired on (without disclosing a prior relationship with these people to management) and consequently gave their friends all of the "good" shifts where they would do minimal work and complain about the work and the management the entire time, and thus stick me and one or two other token employees who actually accomplished things with the late night weekend shifts; where we had to clean up their mess and frantically move merchandise around to new displays while also closing and resetting the store. When the truck would come, it would always be me, a token employee, and the key holder and one of their friends unloading; but then after the truck was unloaded and had driven away, the key holder and their friend would go sit in the break room and
In all the time I've worked for Tuesday morning (2 years) the manager has changed 3 times. There was one manager out of the 3 before that was good, but she was treated badly by everyone higher than her position to the point where she left the company. The other manager was not trained properly and never given any help, just threatened with termination when they messed up. the last manager of the 3 was just plain lazy and useless, always locking themselves always in the back and never helping with any tasks where they were required. The current manger is OK, but has moments of pure stupidity, forgetting that they took money out at the beginning of the day and making the closer go crazy wondering what happened. They have to call the manager and ask what happened to get a "oh right i did that". Its fine if the manager is nice and down to earth, but they have to be a manager as well. The DM makes on the ball decisions that make no sense and backfire almost instantly. This makes the workflow grind to a halt, just to move the DMs mistakes back where they were before. There's no sense of accomplishment for making on the ball decisions, if you do something yourself that they don't like, its scrapped and changed completely next time you're in. At the same time though they want to tell you to make your own decisions and "make it work". Raises consist of maybe a dime above what you had before and the work day is sometimes just you alone working while the other worker is stuck in the bac
ProsSimple tasks, Flexible hours

I've been out of the company for a bit. I didn't post dates of employment because they will match up with others and I don't want to paint a target on co-workers' backs. Retaliation is a reality with this company. Debated posting a review at all, but the current company rating is undeserved and prospective employees should get a heads up.
if you need lines on your resume, this is an ok position, but don't make plans to have a career here. As a manager you WILL be overworked, lied to and lied about, disrespected and undervalued. a typical work week will include 3-4 open to close shifts.
You will be scheduled for breaks, but the available staffing hours are not enough to allow you to be off the floor.
At some point, you will work 5 am-830pm. Expect that to happen with depressing frequency. It has happened to part time (4 hour a day) workers without warning and no more than a dismissive shrug from up-line management.
you will be allotted 80 hours of vacation time. Never more than that, no matter how many years you put in. given the 50-60 hour work weeks, that amounts to a week and half. It's replacement time, SO If you are understaffed and working 7 days a week (sadly common) your vacation time is reduced to just over a week IF you can get somebody to cover your time.
The company really doesn't have good leadership or infrastructure. You won't see the kind of metrics and technology that are industry standard. my overall impression is that the com
I've worked at Tuesday Morning for almost four years and I've seen a lot of people come and go. I started as seasonal, but luckily my assistant manger convinced my manger to keep me after Christmas. I was made a key holder/part-time manager after two of my managers were terminated and we acquired a new district manager. Right before I was promoted I was sent to another store while mine was being moved. The manager at that store made me a key holder and taught me the basics. I was basically a fill-in while I was there. Doing jobs others didn't want to do. I learned how to merchandise and recover properly. When our store was ready to be moved in to, I got another manager and a new assistant manager. I learned a lot while we moved in. How to build units properly and how to help people who were new.
A typical day now is usually a little stressful. Most of the time you have a "job" in the store that needs to be accomplished. For example: resetting and entire aisle because new items coming into the store. I'm usually the one who makes the store look "pretty". I am also one of the top managers when it comes to customer service. Willing to do everything I can to make my customers happy. Most days I enjoy my job, but I'm stuck now and there doesn't seem to be anywhere for me to go. I'm looking for another place to learn and spread my wings.
I would have to say the hardest part of my job is picking up after my manager. My manager has mastered making it look like he's doing s
Tuesday Morning could be an ok place to work but its rare for there to be more than just the manager and one other employee working at anytime. The company expects the person at the front to run the register, help customers get things off of high shelves, move furniture into customers cars, straighten and recover most of the store, and then put together things like lamps or tag merchandise, all while never leaving the register uncovered. It's obvious that the management has never worked in a store because they would realize that it is impossible. Then on truck days the employees have to unload an entire truck and the company wants the employees to open the boxes as they come off the truck. Lots of the merchandise comes untagged and wrapped with lots of packing. At the store I'm at we have about 4 women working on these days. There are boxes that contain very large heavy furniture pieces that we have to unload. When the upper management visited on a recent truck day they implied that we should be able to unload the entire truck in an hour and 30 minutes. Lately there have been upwards of 450 boxes on our trucks and each box can sometimes have ten or more items/boxes inside. Again, its obvious management has never actually worked a truck day. Just the empty boxes and trash alone take most of the day to break down and empty. Customers constantly complain about how hot the store is but management doesn't seem to care. The company is about to lose good employees because they don'
I worked for this company for 6 years, and the way they treated me...I would not recommend it to anyone, not even someone I hated.
The best way I can describe this company...It's a joke to work for them...A cruel joke.
You will NEVER have a stable schedule.
Your hours will ALWAYS fluctuate, never allowing you to save money and only allowing you to scrape by. So much, in fact, that I would have to go 2-3 days without eating at times. Their excuse for the fluctuation in hours, which happened every week mind you, was "We went over hours" ...How?...You scheduled them...they were approved...how? Every week?...Something obviously needs to change.
Then when they would get 'more hours', they would hire more people...which in turn, kept all the other people who were already there, and willing to work more, less hours after that week...Seriously, I saw a lot of others get down to 3-4 hours a week, come in, be the butt of a joke by a manager, and then walk out saying 'It's not worth it.". And to be honest, it really isn't.
The final straw for me, however, was when I caught the manager LITERALLY falsifying the payroll. Lay-mans terms, not paying me the money that I was owed for working. This would be 50-100 dollars a week....EVERY...WEEK...However, when I brought it to the attention of the higher ups in the company, literally did the investigation for them, showed them photographic evidence of what was happening, and then they even did THEIR OWN investigation...Nothing. No
ProsIf you are retired but need something to get you out of the house for a few hours...it's 'alright'
Productive and sometimes competitive work environment with a ping pong table.
On a typical day you would show up to Tuesday Morning Inc. and say hello to a fair amount of friendly folks/associates before clocking into work. Once clocked in you could no longer carry any food or electronics on your person, and were expected to be in your established work startup area to meet with your fellow department associates before listening up to our department supervisor on the new weeks expected goals, last weeks numbers, room for improvement, handing out "thank you" cards and etc. From there our supervisor would assign us our designated group and send us on our way to our first trailer assignment until about 7 p.m. when we get our daily paid lunchtime, and then return at around 7:30 p.m. to work again until 11 p.m, the end of our shift. I would say that the workplace culture was very laid back as opposed to other companies i had worked for previously, which were very fast paced. You're coworkers are all friendly and are always willing to collaborate with you in order to complete a task, all in all a great workplace culture experience. The hardest part of the job i would say is just the amount of physical labor you must be willing to put in for the establishment, being that you are in truck trailers for the majority of your time lifting boxes weighing from 3 lb to 150 lb, but with the help of fellow associates, pallet jacks and forklift drivers, you more or less fair pretty well.
Again the most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the relationships you bui
Tuesday Morning is, probably more than, a decade behind other retailers in technology, operations, and marketing. Most of my job was manual until I'd been there over a year when we finally onboarded with a marketing automation tool. We also outsourced so much work that those working in-house were robbed of valuable learning opportunities that would make us competitive in the job market and help us keep up with trends and advances in our fields.
Tuesday Morning is trying to foster a culture, but I'm not sure they know what kind of culture they're after. I asked in my initial interview what the culture was and was told there wasn't one. During my time there, HR tried to foster some kind of community, but the vision and direction of where that was headed were lacking severely.
In my personal experience, leadership was more focused on soft skills than hard skills-something that is a big no for trying to compete in a closeout retail industry. We lost valuable time in advancing marketing efforts because leadership either had no marketing experience whatsoever or couldn't manage their team out of a paper sack.
Being in the job market again has made me realize Tuesday Morning does not offer their team members any opportunities for learning outside of their role or even opportunities to keep up with current advancements. Because of that, I am years behind my competitors.
While I enjoyed my team members and certainly learned a lot while I was there, I believe there were so many m

i got hired for this job at age 20, and it is the slowest job ever. meant for someone in their 50s. the pace is too slow, i would check one person out every half hour. not a friendly environment and i hated everything about the job. coworkers/manager talked down to me because i was younger (not because i was inexperienced). i felt as though i was outcast by my coworkers because i was new. on top of that i was mainly just someone to stand behind the counter and aside from that my job was to "tidy up" the front of the store, which doesn't keep anyone busy. but then they want you to have something to do all day but don't give you any actual time consuming jobs? that made it feel like time actually STOOD STILL inside this store. very out of wack and there was no order to anything, they don't even have planograms for how their store should be set up. the WORST part though is that they force you to clock out half an hour after the store closes, even though after that you have to go to the back of the store with the manager until they finish putting in and sending off the days info, just so you can walk out and hear the alarm sound before you can leave. so you end up being forced to stay an extra half hour after the store closes (that you ARE NOT getting paid for) before you can go home. i did not work this job for long, the first day on the job i knew i couldn't stay there. everything about this job is horrible in my opinion, if you are in high school or in your twenties, do NOT ap

LAS VEGAS LOCATION TROP AND DURANGO! DO NOT WORK THERE!
I will not give any names, but from what I do know,
This location is NOT safe to work at. At all!
I have known two co-workers of mine to get held at gun point in the parking lot as they were being watched from afar. A male approached their window to their car. And demanded to give them the money or else. The male had known that Tuesday Morning associates drop their cash every night. Reason being, Tuesday Morning states in policies that the last two closing associates drop the cash drawer to a bank, which is no where near Tuesday Morning, so you do have to drive to a completely different location, unprotected. You're not even management or a supervisor, it's completely ridiculous and DANGEROUS!!
Fortunately, neither co-workers were injured but definitely afraid and very uncomfortable from then on out. One of the two co-workers that were involved, quit. Simply because Tuesday Morning management and Corporate of Tuesday Morning, stated that, " there was nothing they can do about the situation and that the policy was to remain in affect", where "Sales Associates" will still proceed to drop the money every night if closer. Are you kidding me??! For them to think someone will actually risk their lives for some Corporate cash drop and getting paid only $8.25 with barley in any hours for a company that can give a you know what? IS COMPLETELY

Create an actual “open door” policy and talk to your store managers and monitor the “Dashboard” report for each district and that tells you for the most part of you have the right people as district managers.
