    I worked at Ann Taylor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Descent pay and benefits except for medical..the worst I ever had. Vacation days and 401 K matching was great.

    Cons

    Promos change almost daily and floor sets twice a month plus new shipment three days a week makes it almost impossible to cater or provided service for your clients/guest. Workload was horrible at Loft.

    Pros

    Fashion forward, energetic place to work. Great for social personable individuals. Multitasking and team work oriented environment.

    Cons

    Black out dates for vacation, inconsistent internal hiring, constant executive turn over rate, thus constant change in company culture and priorities. Wouldn't choose this company if wanting to grow and develop quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay consistent and appreciate the small things.
