    Current Employee - Store Manager in Virginia (South Africa)

    Pros

    I get to merchandise and sell great fashion. I get to make women, and occasionally men, look amazing on a daily basis. The employee discount and benefits are great. And I get to work with many other amazing managers and staff.

    Cons

    The workload can be very heavy sometimes but it's not anything too different from most other retail management jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take merchandise/buying advice from your store managers since we are on the front lines every day talking to her about what she wants and needs. Evaluate how the workload is determined because it is usually all or nothing.
