    Certain departments have heavy work hours

    I worked at Ann Taylor part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount! 50% off. They also give you extra discounts for making the monthly store goals. It's also fairly easy to move up in the company.

    Cons

    I wished that my shifts were longer. They typically only schedule sales associates for 4 hour shifts. It's sometimes hard to really make your personal sales goals in that amount of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give opportunities earlier to move up in the company.

    Pros

    You get a seasonal style booklet where you get 70% of a variety of items, they trust associates with tasks that I was not allowed to perform at while at the associate level in regards to other retailers, corporate rewards employees during holidays.

    Cons

    Some of the clientele that come in are older and you do have to be very patient with some of them when explaining store policies, but other than that there really isn't much not to like

    Pros

    Great support from management at district and corporate levels. Great training , tools available to achieve success, awesome discounts

    Cons

    Truthfully the cons are really retail industry based in general and mall specific not really the company, things like insane extended hours and stupid rules about where to park. Like I said not related to Anninc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing , we love you.

    Pros

    Great learning experience
    Visuals are always fun
    Clients are open to get styled
    part-time is not hard to balance with personal life
    employee discount is great 50%
    seasonal cards 75% off certain items

    Cons

    Corporate sometimes think associates are robots and should get large amount of things done in little time. If you work at different stores some teams work ethic are very different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a better example of being a leader and motivate team to do right and go above and beyond.

    I have been working at Ann Taylor

    Pros

    great clothes, smart company who knows what they are doing, great staff

    Cons

    In my particular store there was not a lot of wiggle room with merchandising (due to management). There are no real rules with scheduling for management (Sales Leads = closers, say goodbye to Sundays), they also wont allow you to go over 29 hours a week because of benefits (as a sales lead)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sales leads more hours and options for benefits. Establish some guidelines for scheduling

    I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good co workers, mainly a fun environment, great clients for the most part, learning to interact more with the clients is a great skill I'll use in the future, styling clients for full outfits, and the employee discount is one of the better discounts out there.

    Cons

    Awful management who only has their best interest at heart instead of the whole store, barely any help when wanting to learn more skills, they hired an inexperienced person for sales lead when there were people who have been with Loft for years and could do the position well, etc. The pay is awful and the hours aren't enough for being a main job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your associates and show that you actually care about the team

    Pros

    The clothes is really cute and the discount is really good.

    Cons

    Management is always constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems as though the dynamic was constantly chaining with new managers and sometimes the managers were not clear on expectation.
