    Pros

    Fun-ish environment, flexible scheduling for the most part.

    Cons

    No commission, constant returns, no loss prevention -- no sensors, cameras, 10+ Items are encouraged in a fitting room, items frequently get stolen and then it's your fault for not paying more attention when you are left for 3+ hours alone without another associate present, pressure to sell more/be more enthusiastic with no incentive, no employee discounts off sale items, ridiculous amounts of paperwork/reports which are more or less useless in the grand scheme of things, 1000 part-time employees who only work at the store for a discount and who's hours total 4-8 a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to figure out a way too pay more or make it worth employees to put into the job what they ask for. Up wages, give full time to more than just assistant managers and store managers. Enough with the conversion crap. Enough with printing out every email and wasting incredible amounts of paper. Cache isn't luxury. The quality of merchandise actually quite poor.

    Pros

    Good pay. That was really it. The customer is snobby, and the staff are okay. Some women associates are kinda and fun while others don't take change well and are all almost over 50.

    Cons

    No advancement, favoritism with district managers and store managers. If they don't like you, they'll find a reason to get rid of you. It's terrible. They look down on younger staff and don't take them as seriously as they do older women. Advancement is hard and rare. Product is random and floor sets are out dated. Assistant managers expected to do most of the work while store managers sit back. Outdated training program, and if you aren't trained by a good manager you're screwed for your cache career. You have to wear their products and if you don't they will reduce your hours. The discount is horrible for the high priced clothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Everyone's voice is heard. Even as a sales associate or "stylist" district managers care what you have to say and relay to their regionals. With a good team at your store you'll love the experience. The company truly tries to hire within, giving good opportunity for moving up.

    Cons

    Absolutely no benefits for part-time.

    Pros

    Pay, Commissions, Bonuses, Clothes, Discount

    Cons

    Hours, some of the upper management, pushy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to practice what you preach. You say it is a "Promote from within company," but out of the six years I worked for the company, I knew many great employees who's hard work didn't pay off.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with my staff.. But the District manager was a very Demanding women. She would come to the store which by the way was doing great numbers and very organized and clean.. But no matter she always found something to complain about something. Never words. of encourgment There was no where to move up in this company.

    Cons

    Dealing with the District manager was always a challenge.. She would call and bark orders..

    Pros

    40% off discounts, to request off is not a problem

    Cons

    Everyone wants to know everyone's business, too much gossiping, management is not strong enough, connecting and creating loyalty with customers is not addressed even with the managers, favoritism goes throughout the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to improve by hiring store managers that can address any situation with out having to discuss with other employees about how bad of a performance is being made by the other associate. Zoning and connecting with customers need to be more of a focus point in order to create loyalty and having better conversion reports. Hopefully with these improvements cache can now do better with stocks and their investors that are now not investing due to how by the company is doing.
