    Pros

    employees can be cool and discount on clothes.

    Cons

    Schedule is not consistent, made weekly. Getting off on a weekend is rare Ive been off two saturdays in 7 months. Blackout dates (weeks that you can't take off) are almost the whole calendar. Overall it is not a place you want to stay, A starter job for when you graduate college to have management experience on your resume. Once you put in a few months leave and find something better .

    Advice to Management

    Allow more weekends off. There is not a healthy work/life balance

    Pros

    They have some good discounts at first for employees and offer benefits.

    Cons

    Haven't been on one shift and been employed for 4 months. They even messed up my employee info and fired me because they didn't have a copy of my passport (which they didn't ask for) and rehired me AFTER I reapplied. Don't waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    It's cool that they hire almost anyone, but put a cap on it guys. I don't have ANY hours. Why hire so many people if they only work 5 hours a month?

    Pros

    There were no pros to working with this company besides the food court being near by. Oh, and the discount, which also was not that exciting.

    Cons

    Management did not know how to manage their employees. They were ridiculously strict, and they had selected favorites that they never delegated any work to.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having favorites,

    Pros

    company perks & fun environment

    Cons

    every "shift" is a call in which is not a guaranteed shift store discount not all that great for the expense of the clothes

    Advice to Management

    hire less people & actually give employees shifts to work- working once a month is not resourceful or raise the pay and give employees actual shifts

    Pros

    Okay place to work especially if you're going through school and need flexible hours.

    Cons

    They want you to do too much just for that little minimum wage that you're getting paid. And while you work you're constantly being followed and hovered over.

    Advice to Management

    Be a lot more friendlier and genuine. Way too strict just for selling some clothes.

    Pros

    Easy job. Building relationships with your store associates (18-24 year olds), and encouraging their development is fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    Boring. Not challenging and opportunities for advancement are only attainable after 'paying your dues' aka putting in time and waiting around. Perhaps the biggest con is that working for this company is like going back to high school. Many of the store managers are recent college graduates who have no sense of professionalism or experience with confronting conflict within a professional setting. Most of their store managers have no business managing people.

    Advice to Management

    Do not promote store managers and district managers based upon how much time they have spent with the company. Promote based upon educational background and performance.

    Pros

    None-definitely not somewhere i'd choose again to work. It was overwhelmingly boring, tiring and paid little, plus you had to buy clothes

    Cons

    Superficial, once made me not work because i had to wear glasses that day, i hated having to buy clothes and they treat the clothes awfully there, gross to wear.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accepting

    Pros

    Some of the managers that came through here were great people to work with.

    Cons

    The customer service here is not what it should be. This company hires its associates based solely on their "natural beauty". They don't evaluate any other skills during onterview. So they end up with kids that stand around on their phones and don't approach customers. The sales associates take their "model" title seriously and don't like to do anything, so the actual work load falls on the impact team.

    Advice to Management

    Hire right from the start. If you hire based on actual popential vs looks alone you will get good employees that don't just eat up payroll.
