Yes you have to wear the merchandise but you get a good discount and the clothes are great.
I do think it's important we wear the merch it's a lot easier to sell more if the customer can see items styled differently. It's very expensive maintaining your wardrobe especially when most of the shifts are just 3hrs. Its also disheartening that customers get the same discount on certain sales as the staff. I think there should be an allowance for clothing or somehow make what we buy tax deductible because I do consider it a uniform.
