    Pros

    The customers are usually pretty easy going

    Cons

    My DM has left me alone as a key holder for over 3 weeks now with no management. The pay is not worth it, my store never meets goal, so the commission is not there. I am under appreciated, and under trained

    Advice to Management

    Get your ducks in a row, and hire enough staff to actually run a store, rather than a skeleton crew,

    Pros

    Seems like a nice place at first. People smile when they give you the tour. But the tour soon ends...

    Cons

    The whole place is a mess with 100 people playing leader on one project. They fired old management (twice!) and the new one is the worst. They don't care about people, only the "bottom line" and made numerous cuts on employees and salaries.

    On top of that, they force you to embrace some fake "culture", smile while everyone back stabs each other, and work longer hours (sometimes till 8 at night). Stay away from this place if you value your time or future.

    (FYI: They changed their name to DXL but not succeeding).

    Advice to Management

    Grow a backbone. Pick a leader. Stick with one direction. Oh--and be nice and pay your employees!!!

    Pros

    Nice location, great service training

    Cons

    Poor compensation, every increasing demands and sales goals. Misrepresented duties and career path at interview and hire.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on commission. Don't hold sales goals as the be-all,-end-all of performance. An outlet at the beach is going to be people stopping in and finding one or two things they may like, and then only with a coupon. It's not a destination store...

    Pros

    If given a store in a high income area and a high priced store such as DXL or Rochester you can make a pretty penny, otherwise you make a little over minimum wage. This is an extremely easy job with a little more sales thrown in.

    Cons

    The pay is pitiful. You are paid a low wage and if you have a bad week they use your hard earned comission to make sure you get paid at least minimum wage instead of having to pay you an extra $1.50. You get 3% per sale but in reality you get 3% per sales per week. They get out of paying you any way they can you are basically working to ensure you get minimum wage. The return policy causes a lot of tension because anything can be returned any time. You cannot say "no" about anything. And they mean it. If you get a complaint you might as well hand over your keys. The employees get A LOT of abuse from guests and upper management. They are consistantly on your back about sales and numbers even when you cannot get guests in the store. They expect top sales people on a less than McDonald's budget. The benefits are not even enough to pay for, so most go without insurance. The only full time jobs are assistant manager and store manager. There are no cameras, but they do have a silent alarm......that you cannot push until they are gone. Helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Change and enforce the return policy to help your employees. Install cameras to keep them safe!! Employees are treated badly on both sides. Train your upper management, especially when it comes to human skills. Serious changes need to be made within the entire company. Employees don't stay for a reason, and people are not breaking down the doors to work there.
