    I worked at J. Jill Group

    Pros

    Corporate sets you up for success as a manager- communication via store email is timely, informative and often includes a step by step plan for longer projects. Floorset directives are full color, easy to follow, with helpful variations in store layout for examples on product setup. Goals are pretty realistic, and corporate is pretty considerate of retail field employees overall. Sneak peak product guide monthly includes details about quality or patterns/styles to help you educate the customer. Corporate will support your making the client happy always. Workload was really never unreasonable, pretty relaxed pace for retail. Health benefits are great, good vacation time and paid holidays.

    Cons

    You HAVE to wear the clothes, in reality, although they officially don't require it. Expect all feedback from corporate visits to start with "She (employee) was dressed beautifully all in brand..." or "Lets ask ourselves, is she brand"? if you aren't wearing at least a new dressy top from this months collection- and that's for a suprise visit. Official visits are going to cost you at least $200 each, for a new head to toe JJill ensemble, insurance that your visit will go well. Discount is 40%, clothing is pricey, good quality though, if you love the clothes and are only working for extra money that's not an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know there's a good reason to want your field employees dressed in JJill. Employees dressed in the brand, in the current collection especially, of course is a huge boost to sales. Nothing says you believe in the product like wearing it. Make it affordable for your employees, you will make up the cost and more in increased sales.
