    Pros

    -Amazing discount
    -Fast paced environment
    -Love my co workers and managers
    -You get to interact with so many loyal customers, you really create an amazing bond! And at the same time you are contributing to the company.
    -If you want to advance in management this is a great place to grow!

    I love this company so much! So much opportunity to grow. I'm now on my path to being an ASM. I've had the opportunity of working at one of the biggest stores so to be able to say I came from that store makes me proud. I'm just proud of where I work. To help women everyday feel great about themselves is rewarding. All negative comments are irrelevant... This is retail people. Get over it.

    Cons

    -Mmmmm I have nothing bad to say? I really enjoy my job.

    Advice to Management

    -To be able to say you interact with your DM is pretty cool. Not a lot of companies could say they know who their DM is.

    Be considerate to your employees schedule, especially if they are students

    Pros

    Nice people, great district managers. Discount is really good. The company has really good things they do in particular for associates. They are very passionate about St Jude.

    Cons

    Constantly having to deal with changes, selling credit cards every day.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Outlet division has tons of potential for advancement. Retail has lots of opportunity for entry level management.

    Cons

    Scheduling is difficult, payroll is always tight.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a method to reward hard working, amazing associates with raises more frequently. Once a year for 15-35 cents an hour is not motivational.

    Pros

    Pretty decent pay for retail, super flexible schedule, laid back atmosphere, decent discount.

    Cons

    Selling those stupid credit cards to customers, management sometimes based job performance solely on the ability to sell the credit card rather than the ability to sell clothes and provide customer service. It almost seemed like customers who weren't spending hundreds of dollars or credit card holders weren't treated equally.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on customer service instead of shoving credit cards down the customer's throat

    wonderful people to work with
    upper management easy to work with
    Benedits package is good, vacation time, health insurance better than most

    Good discount offers to associates! Discount changes by the sale but still a discount! You can wear black and white or purchase their items based on policy to wear in the store.

    Cons

    Low starting pay many just stay for the discounts
