Melrose Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Melrose Family Fashions is a chain of clothing stores in the Southwestern United States operated by United Fashions of Texas Ltd. Melrose was started in 1976 with one store in McAllen, Texas, by the Bar-Yadin family, immigrants from Israel.

A former employee mentioned, "The management at Melrose was very shady. Always went off of favoritism, never organized, always rude and disrespectful to customers as well as employees, they treat you any kind of way and the pay is not even minimum wage where im from, so yea if I could say anything nice about this company it would be that I like their shoes."

Cashier (Former Employee) says

"They ask a lot of their employees with little pay. During the time of my employment the manger sat in the back on the phone most days or had friends visiting. The employees were left to do all forms of layouts, unloading, and scheduling."

Cashier/ Sale Associate (Former Employee) says

"Was a very bad experience for first time sales associate and cashier manager would talk behind someone's back with the employees overall was not a good company to work at Cons: No cons"

Sales Associate/ Cashier (Former Employee) says

"Melrose is not a permanent job and is a poor place to work given no open opportunities for promotion. Management communication is poor and there is plenty of favoritism in the work place."

Sales Associate (Current Employee) says

"Absolutely most horrible place to work. Clothes are cheaply made, customers are extremely rude and threaten to beat you up daily and mgmt is horrific! Cons: Rude customers, horrific management"


"Good Co.In All sites.Very slow service cos on all offshore Sub Sea Cons: Poor in country Service Co's"

Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"Working at Melrose was a rough experience. You get hired & told it's an easy job, but get treated badly. There are 3 managers and all run off favoritism at store # 90. I've never worked with such rude managers! I hope no one else has the experience I had :( I was the youngest one there & they obviously took advantage of that. Managers would talk to me rudely and raise their voices. They would also talk badly about all the employees except their personal favorites. When hired, I was told we would be moving around different positions in the store working as a team, which was completely false, I stayed as greeter for 8 months. I wouldn't recommend anyone to apply or work at store # 90. I can't stress it enough, you really don't get paid enough for all the work that you do & it just isn't worth it. It was an uncomfortable experience & honestly glad I'm out of there. A store run off favoritsim and pure discrimination? No thanks! Cons: Pay, Hours, Treatment"

Manager (Current Employee) says

"DM is dishonest and management does not enforce company policy! Corporate needs to open their eyes,Company is falling apart at the seems sad but True.Top management needs to stop sharing employees personal information."

SALES (Former Employee) says

"Only I clear the department in the afternoon o night and help the customer with the merchandise. Cons: 1 hr. of lonche."

Senior Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says

"the company is based of off texas and in the california stores they didn't follow CA LAW Cons: don't follow CA laws"

Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"-minimal wage of $7.25"

Senior Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says

"Ceo Sucks not enough employees and low paying job so we couldn't keep people. Store manager was selfish I wouldn't go back and i wouldn't send anyone there. I learned to go to school and finish college so i wouldn't have to work like a dog for a few pennies."

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) says

"No training, terrible management, not enough hours given, no benefits given, terrible environment, very cut throat, no opportunitys for going up the company ladder. Cons: Management, training, not enough hours, no benefits"

Server/Host /Expo (Former Employee) says

"Worked here for 7 years, no room for advancement. Management treats employees like they do not matter n everyone’s replaceable. Would not recommend to future peers"

Store Manager (Full-Time) says

"I definitely never felt valued. My manager was secretive/lacked communication skills. Corporate used outdated tactics such as fear and intimidation. Complete lack of training. Extremely manipulative, they tell you one thing to get what they want, turn their back on their word (frequent). They don't value work/life balance. I could write a book about my experiences there and help companies learn what not to do. It's a failing company, they are behind with the times. Little to zero marketing, faulty technology, nepotism, cheap merchandise, and irrelevancy. Brick and mortar is suffering as it is and will only continue to decline. I often wonder if the owner knows how important it is to take care of their staff, and if they know what is going on behind the scenes. Yes, it is a privately owned company, but there should be checks and balances of power."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"Poor management. Not good communication. Not that many hours to work. Management are not commited towards their job. The place wasn't a good work environment. Sometimes we were opening late , due to tardiness of the management. Cons: Poor management, less work hours, work schedule was always late/change for the co-workers"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"management was rude to workers. changed schedules last minute, consistently. bad work environment."

Cashier (Former Employee) says

"A typical work day was stressful and fast paced. What I learned was hard work doesn't always guarantee job security. Management was what it was. The work place culture was good. The hardest part of the job was handling work load quickly and efficiently in a short time period. The most enjoyable part of the job was closing time."

Sales associate (Former Employee) says

"managers were okay, but sometimes acted childish, co workers were nice, but there was always drama. pay is super low, honestly no escalation on this job. Cons: pay"

Sales Floor Team Member (Former Employee) says

"Great enviorment and good managment. Friendly enviorment to work in. Cons: Breaks"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"typical workday employees have to do everything managment only gives orders. I've learned that there are better companies out there but the staff you work with is really friendly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with ghetto customers all the time no matter what location it is at. The most enjoyable part of my job was deinfatly getting that staff bond with your employees. they work you hard til the point where your family is the staff and you become close to them. Cons: breaks were short, had to do all the work on a short period of time."
