    Team lead at an outlet mall... Not the best of jobs....

    Team Lead (Former Employee)
    Aurora, IL

    ProsThe health, dental, vision benefits & discount were awesome!

    ConsThe hours; I closed every saturday until I quit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe all realize that retail is not a glamorous job, but at least be aware of how you schedule people.

    When an employee says hey I want to be promoted - help them train for that next step. Don't just shrug your shoulders and walk away from the conversation.

    Everybody was miserable, especially the management.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsLarge uniform allowance, 4 times a year.

    ConsManagement would show up 30 minutes late to open in the morning and no apologize. This happened all the time. They were angry all the time and hounded us on sales statistics. We were expected to follow the customers around like lost puppies, which just drove the customers away.
    Turnover was so high, I think they just didn't care about anyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to care about your people, encourage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pro German, for Germans - everyone else, you're on your own.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsBright colleagues challenging each other. Chance to move or travel internationally. Discount on products. Connected to sport daily if you seek it out.

    ConsAll decisions come from Germans, like the decisions or fake like you like them, or leave. In Europe that style works very well and the company prospers. In Russia and China where huge focus has taken place more localization of decisions have benefited. The US struggles under management that is not American and no localized decision making. The remaining parts of the world are smaller markets and generally perform well with a European perspective.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
