    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time off as a Jones Company was outstanding. Bank time, vacation all perks. Compensation fair within the industry as well as bonus and good insurance.

    Met a lot of great individuals and the customers were amazing. Great inexpensive benefits

    Communication, consistency and holding people accountable is a major opportunity for upper management.

    Promotes from within, tons of job opportunities with other brands within the company, great benefits, friendly work environment. Really understanding with taking days off for sick kids, death in the family, etc.

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough employees, I'm basically doing two people's jobs, just moved our office from Westchester to NYC and they are not increasing our salaries by enough to cover the cost.

    I have been working at The Jones Group part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Continued training and ideas to be the best in woman's fashion

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say on the company. I truly enjoy being a team member!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Jones Group has Core Values that allow their employees to balance work and family. For retail I feel they compensate a little better than most as they truly look at the associates background to ensure they are offering suitable compensation.

    I have been working at The Jones Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, discount, a lot of free clothes and holiday bonuses. Ability to balance work - life and personal life.The availability to apply for a different position or department with in a year. Work load manageable and training is available through the learning center.

    Cons

    Office culture is very unprofessional. Bullying and harassment is a comment accuracy and there is barely any reprimanding for those who are doing it. This creative a very uncomfortable work environment. Management very questionable and a lot for favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandatory yearly diversity and sensitivity in the workplace for management training classes.

    Pros

    Fairly decent benefits. Good place to learn a little before you can move on to your dream company that requires some years of experience before you apply.

    Cons

    Working at Jones right now or interviewing you will hear that the company is in the middle of a "transition", which they have been saying to justify the lower salary they will offer. You do not move up easily in the company, no matter how much of an "asset" you might be to your specific team. Jones is a place to build up skill and go, like younger people do, or settle in a mediocre environment, like the remaining group from the "old jones" when it was all good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have good employees, pay them well and treat them well. The bottom of the food chain is the actual power source, not the top. Without good employees there is no good work.
