    I worked at Ann Taylor part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discount. Working with beautiful clothing one on one with high end clients. Satisfying job. Shift goes by very quickly because there is always so much to do.

    Cons

    Credit card goals. Upward mobility is few and far between. Poor communication with District and Corporate Staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for upward mobility through on the job training and more fulltime positions at stores. Offer more benefits to part time employees.

    Working here for the most part is satisfactory, but the employees are more deserving of better pay.

    I have been working at Ann Taylor

    Pros

    For the most part the employees have good values and are friendly to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, customers are crazy and there are a million things to do with little payroll allowance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a limit on the online orders stores are expected to fill. It takes away time that could be spend with the customer.

    All Stylists are great to work with and everyone works as a team. Flexible hours and Management is easy to work with as long as you communicate. Good employee discount and buying incentives quarterly

    Can be physically tiring. Could experience a lot of management turnover as people move up and on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train! Train! Train! Share information - don't forget about the Stylists that only work 4 hours a week.

    Pros

    Employee discount, great management, good employee relationship

    Cons

    Management seems a litte more concerned about getting credit than how the employees help the customer. Sometimes an employee can make a $400 sale but if they dont get a card opening, then it seems to go unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more praise to employees on their customer service skills.
