    Pros

    the job was very comforting. all of us became one big family, since there's no sizing in the store it made it easier for employers to find things for customers and I loved the clothing myself!

    Cons

    rude customers complaining about one size or the music or returns since there was no refunds just exchanges.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more focused on employees' break times because I always had to ask.

  2. Typical Retail Experience

    Pros

    The only pro is that people my age work there so I make a lot of friends who keep the job interesting.

    Cons

    The salary is completely unfair. I have been working there for almost a year and I get paid less than some of the girls who have been newly hired. I was hired without even a work permit or interview or resume and i worked one day illegally until i could get my papers together. They put me on schedules sometimes without asking for my availability and i get write ups if i can't find anyone to take over those shifts that were randomly given to me. I don't get sick days. Managers take forever to respond to my texts about availability switches and some of the people are unreliable about covering shifts.

    Pros

    NONE! This company is a joke!

    Cons

    Worst place to work for EVER! Their warehouse is disgusting. This place is for dating, curse words, and selfish people. Upper management is extremely unfair! They choose lazy managers, and hire young wild workers.

    Pros

    Laidback atmosphere, employee discount, decent "learning experience." Great if you deeply desire to feel as though you are back in high school!

    Cons

    A viscerally unethical and destructive company. Favoritism is blatant. The company does not properly follow California Laws.

    Advice to Management

    Looks are not everything.

    The team is really supportive. Exciting new projects. Great learning curve.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between all levels. And lack of incentive structure. Limited room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start an incentive structure in accounting department. Better communication and understanding of company structure. Limit favoritism.

    Pros

    there is nothing pro about this company

    Cons

    Rude co workers all bratty girls, customers come in and scold you about how horrible of a person you are for working for a company that only makes one size. At my location, us girls found out that the "model like girls" were getting payed more than the "regular" employees. Not a fun place, it looks cool and cute whatever, but not worth the drama ad minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to your hard working employees.
