    Good Store

    I worked at Caché

    Pros

    Being in one of the best malls it is really easy to sell. Great location next to expensive stores, you'll receive a lot of regulars.

    Cons

    Cache has strict policies on selling. Never leaving a client alone which works at times, but I feel can turn customers off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some leeway to employees when it comes to selling strategies

    I have been working at Caché full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love that I am able to clientele and work one on one with customers. I'm able to actually style clients unlike some stores that just let you look and only approach you when you need a fitting room. The people I work with are great! Nice employee discount. Usually 40%, every new collection 50%, and sometimes 60%. Your first 3 bottoms and first 3 tops are 70% off. Even though I am an assistant manager, my duties are essentially the same as the store manager. Because I wanted to develop more skills and eventually become a store manager, I was able to perform all duties of the store manager without any problems. You have to own the brand and your store which is awesome. There no micromanaging from upper management and corporate!!

    Cons

    The pay is terrible and if you aren't in a high volume store, you won't make a lot. Part time managers receive little to no benefits even though you may be working 30-36 hours a week. Also the bonus structure is a joke for the ASM. Store manager can receive 10% off of what the store makes in a month (I have seen upwards of $600+ monthly bonus for SSM) and the full time ASM gets $40-$100 bonus (part time ASM gets even less).

    Also no commission. You can get an inventory bonus but only if you are full time and have been in your current position for more than 3 months and have worked in that position for five months prior to inventory (you basically have to work 8 months before earning a full inventory bonus). You can earn half if you are in your position for 5 months before inventory.

    Prepare to have no work life balance...there are blackout dates twice a year...no vacations and no Saturdays off for about two months. They expect a lot from managers yet they do not pay enough especially in low volume stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees...we'd rather earn more money than earn discounts and "cash" that we can only spend on clothes. Also, get better vendors...

    Pay less than comparable positions

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

    Pros

    Nice working environment, management is very helpful with training, always getting new merchandise keeping up with the latest styles. Flexible and very accommodating with work schedule. Great employee discounts and are usually able to earn Cache cash and/or extra discounts based on the store's monthly performance.

    Cons

    Do not get commission.Tend to limit part time employees to five-hour shifts a day even though you may prefer to work a longer shift on one day than having to come in on several days. Not really a big deal though.
