    Pros

    depending on the location you work at, mine has very nice coworkers. everyone is very caring.

    Cons

    even though you are given goals, you don't get commission. we should be at least be given some form of incentive to make our targets for each shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please come up with some sort of incentive for reaching our targets/goals, and not just give us cleo cash for sales of more than $500. not everyone wants to buy from cleo, even if you work there.

    I worked at CLeo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The location where i worked was filled with fabulous people who were good at and had fun with their jobs. actual store level employees are absolutely NOT the problem

    Cons

    Quality is nowhere near a top concern, if product is damaged when it is received its still put out for customers to buy. the buyers seem to buy willy-nilly with no concern for the quality of the work, the fit or the fabric. The way product comes in is disastrous for the environment, items are double and triple bagged. its nearly impossible to get a raise no matter how hard you work. there are too many corporate employees, at times it seems that anyone in the home office who actually has specific responsibilities has an assistant who has an assistant. no credit is given where credit is due. promotions are promised again and again to keep "valued" associates from quitting but are rarely followed through on. store level management is always being restructured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and look at all the talent you have in your stores. If you truly want us to keep making money in the long run, give those people what they deserve and you will be rewarded by their hard work.

    Pros

    it's a good enviroment to work in.
    OK employee discount.
    Very flexible if you need a few days off, unpaid of course, but a lot of flexibility.
    You don't deal with a lot of crazy customers, 90% of them are very polite.

    Cons

    No too much room fo growth.
    Company seems not to care much for good employees.
    Not a good sale structure bonus or competitions, they seem poor and not exciting enough to give that extra push for its employees to go a bit further on sales.

  8. A very good experience, they work to give you ownership of your position and your store

    Pros

    Help you to take ownership of your store, take pride in your store and staff.
    Great manager meetings several times of the year so you can meet other managers from different stores in different provinces. Fun presentation of new season fashions made to the managers to take back and present to the staff. The owners of the store made stops into the store and were very hands on with management and staff.
    A great place to work, fun fashion, fun people, good staff discounts.

    Cons

    Mall hours/working stats etc. Just the usual staffing issues you would find in any store in any mall.
    No overtime for management, salaried employees, can work you lots, but do try to give you time for your time.
    The usual, in any clothing store, targets to make, can get to be a bit hard on the staff, pitting them against each other,although they wouldn't describe it as such, it is to challenge the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask that the buyers have practical on the floor experience, so they know what the normal woman is looking for in fashion. Many times some of the new arrivals you knew were destined to be sell offs at discount, because of the personal taste of the buyer.This applies to all women's fashion outlets not just Cleo, as you will notice that you see the same or very much the same designs/color stories on many of the competitors racks. Looks like they are buying at the same place to fill their stores. Now you are only one upping by price, not creating the individual look most women want when shopping for clothing and accessories.
