    I have been working at A'gaci part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy-going personalities, good way to get your feet wet in the fashion industry.

    Cons

    Kind of a clique-y atmosphere, perhaps because there isn't too much intermingling between departments and varying schedules. Not too much room for growth.

    Horrible. They hire incompetent leaders to run the store, I called HR with a complaint and was fired the next day.

    I worked at A'gaci full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is TONS of room for advancement ESPECIALLY if you dont mind moving around. The environment is set to be a lot of fun and there is so much to learn.

    Cons

    work-life balance was terrible. there was no such thing as part time because everyone was working 35+ hours. Too much stress was put on the employee and as a manager was tough to watch. I was my own boss and I left seeking more knowledge not because I couldnt handle a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more patient with your employee ESPECIALLY their first month. They have entered a new place where they are absorbing everything as fast as possible. Walk them through everything right the FIRST time and set time aside to train as you go.

    Pros

    - decent pay
    - good way to exercise communication skills
    - nice discount of 41%

    Cons

    HA ! WHERE DO I BEGIN !

    - cocky managers
    - 10-15 minute breaks? Sorry full time or part tome we deserve a lunch !
    - Co-workers stealing sales
    - Sales goals? Who made up that idea....big mistake !
    - Gossip, competition, cocky girls...its high school all over again !
    - bad closing hours....i guess being a girl walking home alone after 11pm on these Chicago streets is just fine with everybody....don;t worry I'll invite to my funeral when something actually does go wrong.
    - Fix the dress code. They are trying to dress us like old ladies when we are all ages 18-25

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to appreciate your employees and stop being cocky.
    Address manners in a professional way not like a high school popular girl trying to bully the little people.
    Be more considerate.

    I worked at A'gaci part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - okay discount.
    - mostly cool coworkers.

    Cons

    - horrible upper management
    - little to no hours if you weren't a favorite of the managers..but if you were well liked, you got all the hours.
    - lots of theft
    - coworkers would steal your sales (i.e girl at the cash register would put all the sales under her name because she could)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more professional management. Walking around the store singing all the time is NOT considered professional.
    Treat employees like they actually matter especially if they work their butt off each time they come to work.

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation
    the culture is fun

    Cons

    Poor organization in managing the floor
    the mall closed at (;30 but due to poor floor control we leave at 2 am to about 4 am in the morning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more communication on floor, zone coverage and floor maintanence

    Pros

    Once you get to a certain point in you time there, you get the opportunity to learn how to handle the register and the shoe department, which are a whole lot better than working in the dressing rooms and greeting

    Cons

    Constant firing and quitting employees, short-staffed, sometimes catty co-workers who aren't interested in getting to know you or befriend you. Also, some customers are horrible, as in most customer service jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better loss prevention policies, better training programs, keep better care of clothes

    Pros

    Cute clothes, decent discount, awesome associates lots of hours available cute shoes lots of opportunities to make sales and get more hours

    Cons

    managers stress each other out which stresses associates out. never any time given to train fcs properly. store is too new and store manager doesnt know what shes doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the store manager needs to delegate more. let co managers and floor sups do their jobs give them to the time to do them!!!!!! register manager had so much tasks given to her and she was the only person on the registers she didnt have time to do it all. shoe manager had no people and no time to do anything. BE MORE SELECTIVE IN YOUR HIRING AND YOU WONT LOSE GOOD PEOPLE its a good store dont freak out when sales arent made its so new

    Pros

    Only pro was the 46% discount which they changed I heard.

    Cons

    The management sucks* Their customer service is awful, I have never seen a store go down hill so fast. I will NEVER shop there again. The company does not care about you, and there is NO room for growth in the company, they rather promote external then people who have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually care about your employees and customers.
