    Pros

    You get the BEST employee discount you could ask for, and the customers are usually pretty pleasant. I liked how the store felt and acted up-scale. And my co-workers are very kind.

    Cons

    The shifts were generally 4 hours long, so not long enough for my liking. The only people who were full time were the manager and assistant manager, and I would assume that they hired everyone else as part-time after that so VB would not have to pay for employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let the sales associates make some decisions on product placement/event ideas. And to the higher up management: the brand would be more respected if the bags were not made in China like they originally had been.

    Pros

    I loved working at Vera Bradley! I was part-time so the work/life balance was very good, and I really liked working for a company that was started by women and had mostly women working in the stores. I never felt pressured to sell, and the company has amazing customer service!

    Cons

    I can remember no cons.

    Pros

    Managers who make the job fun, company discount, pay, and hour!

    Cons

    The training seemed to be more of a "Jump in the water to learn how to swim"

    Advice to Management

    Consider more training for seasonal associates.
