    They gave me a chance in a down economy, rewarded my performance, and trained me well.

    I have been working at Uniqlo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Uniqlo hires friendly and bubbly people, so your colleagues are great, bright, motivated people. Uniqlo does performance reviews every 3 months, and if you are smart and competent they will train and promote you. The clothes and discount are great, and Japanese culture is still a strong influence in the company (which is a plus to me, but might be a con to others). Full-time benefits are solid.

    Cons

    This company is cheap. They don't spring for big repairs, professional housekeepers, etc. They will slave you to death *if you allow it*! They don't value work-life balance at all. Their non-exempt wages are above industry average, but their exempt wages are not. After a certain point, your career progression stalls as the company pursues its preference for its bad Uniqlo Management Candidate program over developing internal talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The UMC program is terrible from their recruitment to their training - that's why they have abysmal retention and that's why the few who make it through perform poorly. It is a colossal and continuous waste of time and money. Spend that time and money developing internal candidates instead.

In 1984, Fast Retailing, headed by Tadashi Yanai, opened the first UNIQLO store in Hiroshima, Japan. Since then, the brand has evolved from a chain of roadside stores to an international leader in style, quality, and fun.

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you live, UNIQLO makes clothes that transcend all categories and social groups. Our clothes are made for all, going beyond age, gender, occupation, ethnicity, and all other ways that define people. Our clothes are simple and essential yet universal, so people can freely combine them in their own unique style.
