    Fun, exciting, upbeat, and exciting employee contests and discounts for merchandise.

    Hours, weekend nights at clean up time, employees and customers can be rude. No room to move up if the higher ups are great an love their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to understand your customers and employees, and treat them with respect.

    The managers were awesome at Guess. Worked there for almost 3 years!

    Cons

    No room for growth at all. its beyond hard to see anyone that works so hard there and wants to be more but the company doesn't allowed that person to try.

    Pros

    Discount, more advanced skills needed to be successful therefore helps to make you a better employee /manager. Good people.

    Cons

    Blurred company vision, lack of communication from top to bottom, weak training and developmental implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders, not just operational managers. Know your business and be confident in the people you've hired to run it.

    I worked at Guess?

    Pros

    Where I was, 80% of the customers spoke another language, and it was invaluable to practice conversationally without having to leave the country; there were many employee appreciation days, 40% off most items, bonuses for working most holidays, there is a strong sense of brand pride, there were opportunities to be promoted

    Cons

    There are inconsiderate customers on a daily basis, you are required to work holidays, for a while transgender people were suspected as shoplifters and associates were supposed to "keep an eye" on them and I think that's ignorant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more lgbt friendly, have the product be made in the USA.

    I have been working at Guess?

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to take on new projects, you just have to be willing to make the time for it and speak up. This is definitely a place for doers to express interest in an area and speak to their supervisor about it. If you want to come in for just and 8 to 5 that works too, but don't expect to get promoted any time quickly this way. Company has fun little perks too. Gym, cafe and always doing raffles.

    Cons

    The culture can get to people. Direction is constantly changing, so be prepared to operate in the grey. There's a rigid start time for pretty much everyone and lots of politics between upper management who aren't on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a lack of communication all around the organization. I don't know if it's done on purpose, but it's frustrating for all associates when nothing or very little is communicated. People just feel left in the dark.

    Pros

    Fun working environment! Great employee discount. Developed life long relationships with clients and coworkers. Paul Marciano left great voicemails for the entire staff to listen too!

    Cons

    You have to buy your own clothes (at a discount of course) but with low pay. At times it didn't seem worth it. Wish we made commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More development that leads to actual promotions.
