    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate

    I worked at Coldwater Creek part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the pros were: discounts on merchandise and a friendly work environment. There wasn't much else to consider as it is a retail job.

    Cons

    No time off, of course and little potential for growth. I worked there for a few years and nobody ever got a raise. Very uncertain schedule, have to wait until the week before to make plans because your schedule varies so much.

    I worked at Coldwater Creek part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This was a fun environment to work in. Flexible work schedule and a nice discount. Others employees and management were wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Position did not offer full time work, no medical benefits offered. Seemed like too many associates scheduled each day and someone would be sent home if enough business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop offering sales and discounts constantly every week, regular customers will stop coming if they feel they can get the product at anytime and maybe cheaper the next day. Also, the clothing in the last year seemed cheaply made. Get new buyers!

    Pros

    Learned how to provide the BEST customer service in the business, schedule was pretty flexible, compensation was on par with other similar stores, and my coworkers were wonderful (for the most part).

    Cons

    Rules were somewhat arbitrarily enforced at the store level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is bankrupt now, so apparently something went wrong.
