    The medical benefits are becoming more restrictive, for example, out of network doctors used for wellness checkup no longer counts toward deductible.

    Current Sales Associate in Burlington, Massachusetts

    Best thing: Great discount on clothes! Most customers and other associates are so nice to work with. Usually a fun job, great atmosphere.

    Worst thing: Commission Structure sucks!! Based on amount of "net" sale (less Chico's huge discounts) PER each individual customer! Should be based on assoc's total net sales for day/week/mo. 6+ yrs ago (much better economy), numerous customers would spend $400 to over $1500 / transaction. So typical commissions ran ~ $700 to $2K/mo. Now commissions for part/full time assoc's (12-40 hrs/wk) = $20 - $250/mo. Since avg. net sales/customer these days are $95 - $270, commissions are ~ $1.00 to $2.50/sale. Decent commissions ( $20/transaction and up), require a net sale to reach $400 and up, which almost NEVER happens (twice for me in 8 months.)

    Next worst thing: My first big sale over $400 (It was actually in $750 range) was stolen by my Store manager, who rung it in under her Assoc. #) This was after letting me work about 1 1/2 hrs, almost exclusively, with two customers (a mother and daughter). When I went to grab an additional item, and saw my Mgr ringing them. She CLAIMED that she said "hi" to them "first" at store's entrance. Big deal - most assoc's near front of store say "hi" to customers who walk in.

    MGR also CLAIMED the women were HER REGULARS, despite the fact that she completely ignored them after saying "Hi", even as the one carried several items of clothing over her arm. I saw this & offered to put items in dressing room, and the women asked for additional help. Store mgr let me work w/ them for about 1 1/2 hours, and let me put away all the clothing (lots of clothing!), while she spent most of that time reviewing sales, numbers, goals, etc.

    Incidentally - That store manager has consistently told me "I want you selling today," and virtually every customer who comes into store, she says, "[] will be happy to help you." She only OFFERS to help with customers when it gets too busy for just me. She's usually so nice. However, when she realizes she screwed up by not taking a high-end customer, she can be awfully nasty - greedy, too.

    Above- Not the 1st time - Assistant manager stole sale from me, $400+/- . She said I should have been paying better attention and standing at the register.

    3rd worst thing: Managers/Assist MGRs/ some others notice high-end customer coming in, who they have worked with before, and say, "Oh, I know her, she's my regular, only works w/ me, so I need to take her." Funny, how the assoc. then feels the need to literally run to the store entrance to greet her "loyal" customer, when surely such a "loyal" customer would insist upon that associate, anyways. I only agree with this "exclusivity" when it's the customer who decides it, not the other way around.

    Former Employee in Cleveland, Ohio

    The pay rate was low. Very low raises given. PTO was ok and the health insurance was average.

  • Nov 30, 2014
    Current Marketing Manager in Fort Myers, Florida

    It's since changed to 15 days, but I was hired in at 20 days of PTO (not including sick days). I'm now up to 25 days (5+ years of service).
