    Former Employee - Ann Taylor Loft Sales Lead in Skokie, IL

    I worked at Ann Taylor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great starting pay. Great associate discount. High fashion retail company that rewards hard work and fashionable associates. Best part is you can look amazingly fashionable everyday! Most of the clients are amazing to work with; you really get to make a difference in someone's life by influencing their fashion decisions. Most mornings are slower paced; however it really picks up after school hours.

    Cons

    You really have to have a heart for fashion. If you're the type of person who doesn't pay attention to the small details in fashion, you might not want to apply. Its really hard to get a full time position; you really have to prove yourself, and even then, most managers will hire their friends before promoting you(which is common amongst retail). Store visits are brutal! You really have to have a back bone and be able to take some tough love and harsh criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider internal promotions before hiring externally. Make sure to keep your promises and be a good example to the rest of the team. Keep the Whole Hearted Promise alive! it was a great tool.
