    Pros

    Interacting with customers and assisting in decisions which enhanced their lives. Wardrobing is more than clothing, it includes the personality of your customer and their needs.

    Cons

    Not being appreciated for the job well done. Not listening to employees who are the face and ears of the company.

    Advice to Management

    The pay structure needs to coincide with the level of Customer Service and style of clothing which are offered, if you want to retain high caliber employees who genuinely have a passion for their work.

    Pros

    fun to put outfits together for the various family's.

    Cons

    The company overall didn't pay so well

    Advice to Management

    stay up with the stores you compare yourselves with or hire people with no experience.


  8. BIG ON BEING TERRIBLE

    Pros

    The pay is okay if you work your butt off and have no returns. Commission

    Cons

    Pay is way too low working on commission, sales goals are way too high. They expect you to be better than any other store despite its crappy location. Managers get away with everything. No security at the store. No cameras at all. Everything is pre owned including registers and vacuums. Not a lot of hours so you're forced to work normally 2 open to close 11.5 hour shifts every week. HR

    Pros

    Great customers. Great working hours, flexible schedule, you learn a lot about building wardrobes and detailed selling techniques, salary plus 3% commissions, relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low pay, you lose commissions when merchandise is returned, expensive health benefits. Poor company culture, high turnover of upper management, poor treatment of experienced employees, negative perception of Casual Male employees vs. DXL employees by some regional sales managers contributing to very low morale in the CMXL stores, and over inflated sense of ego in the DXL stores. This is NOT a big happy corporate family.

    Advice to Management

    I know that DXL is all so shiny and new and is the future. But maybe you should at least give the illusion that your Casual Male brand still matters even though they're on borrowed time. Instead of pretending they're already a thing of the past. It might help uplift what little morale is left in those stores.

    Pros

    Loved the customers. The store hours were shorter than most other retailers since most locations are not in a mall.

    Cons

    You are expected to do a million things with a staff of 2. Completely unrealistic expectations with no gratitude.

    Advice to Management

    An almost million $ store with payroll for 2 people. Get a reality check. Forced to work alone open to close a few days a week due to payroll constraints. Rarely got to take a break and use the bathroom let alone eat lunch.

    Pros

    Commission, slow enough for someone starting out to gain experience and hopefully move into a better position

    Cons

    Commission, there are a lot of slow periods so that along with returns can stink.

    Advice to Management

    I have heard problems with how some upper management handles things, but it's the same old corporate stuff. Nothing too crazy from what I've see/heard
