    I worked at Claire's Stores part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    small team of co-workers so we were like a family, it was easy to sell the stuff cause is was inexpensive and fun stuff. Plenty of opportunity for advancement. the employee discount was the BEST.

    Cons

    there was a bit of a disconnect between our store and the higher ups in the company, our district manager would sweep in and give us her "solutions" to our problems and just expect the numbers to magically change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe make it easier to transfer? I would still be working for Claire's, but i moved to another state and the store here wouldn't even consider me cause they had a full staff, I wouldve liked the change to meet the team and be put on an on call staus maybe, to help out when needed, I loved the company.

    Pros

    There was a lot of help from management to assist you in doing your best job possible. They are interested in employee growth.

    Cons

    The company wants to be fashion foreward, but their dress code has restrictions that inhibit ones ability to be on trend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    relax on the dress code

    Pros

    Fun at times, REALLY great discount.

    Cons

    RECOVERY SUCKS!! and you have to deal with everyone's BS 50% of the time. The company gets you in trouble for not making good sales when its not really your fault or theres nothing you can do about it.
