    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.
