The truth is out: Thanks to a little comparative research by our friends at Brokelyn, we found out what the rates and benefits are for working at some of the most popular retail spots. Anthropologie? Sales associates start at anywhere between $9 and $11 an hour and get 40-percent discounts on apparel, 25 percent on home, and no discount on sale items. American Apparel employees make between $9 and $10 an hour to start as a cashier, and assistant managers only make a dollar more. Employees get 50-percent off everything in the store. The downside? They have to work for Dov Charney. Victoria’s Secret employees make minimum wage (which is dependent upon the state) and get 20-percent discounts to start, while Abercrombie & Fitch employees also toil away for minimum wage but receive 40-percent discounts on merch. Abercrombie & Fitch merch, but still.
