    Pros

    I had a really good experience working as an intern last summer! The environment was really welcoming, and I learned so much from my peers. There were very helpful workshops led by HR at least once a week, including an interview and resume workshop. Would recommend.

    Cons

    Not very many cons, I definitely know that they're trying to keep the program going. It was a great introduction to the corporate world.

  6. Company has good foundation. Strong corporate leadership.

    Pros

    Great fashion for career women. Great prices and durability. Buyers are on cutting edge. I was proud to be a part of their company for over 14 yes. Good work life balance. I took with me the core values Dress Barn.

    Cons

    I spent all my money on clothes.

    Pros

    Flexible work times and very friendly staff. This is a fun part time job.

    Cons

    It would be nice to able to wear tennis shoes since we are on our feet 4-12 hours a day. Otherwise nothing to complain about. Money is typical Retail money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having fun!
