    I worked at Charlotte Russe part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They let you grow in the company and let you specialize in something you're very passionate about, such as Visual merchandising, mannequins, shoe specialist, and jewelry

    Cons

    You have to clock out on your 15min breaks which makes no sense because you barely get any hours for the day

    Advice to Management

    The manager are nice depending at your store location, they make you feel like you're friends and make work a fun environment for you. They always want to train you to be your best and grow in the company

    Pros

    really good discount and access to fashion trends, easy to pick up and learn, you don't need any prior experience, fun

    Cons

    no hours, low paying, hard to move up in the store and it takes a long time to prove you're worth keeping and getting hours

    Advice to Management

    none, keep up the great company :)

    I have been working at Charlotte Russe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great atmosphere, and a great place with trendy clothes

    Cons

    Not recommended for people who haven't done retail, they really just throw you into the flow of things.

    Advice to Management

    They need to stop worrying about tasking and focus more on customer service. It will definitely help conversion.


  7. Nice place to get retail experience

    I have been working at Charlotte Russe (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. People were fun to work with and share ideas. The company allows you to be yourself and express your own style. With that being said, it was easy to talk and relate to customers and sell! I wish I was able to stay with the company, but I was offered full-time somewhere else.

    Cons

    The only con would have to be that I wish the regionals would show recognition for good work as far as sales associates

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Charlotte Russe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours, nice staff. Didn't give me a hard time about wanting to work & let me work my way up the ladder pretty quick

    Cons

    2inch + High heels all day!! Didn't care if you were in pain, wanted the look.

    Advice to Management

    Think about what is going on with lower managment teams because asking girls to wear high heels for 8 hours is dangerous there's got to be a break

    Pros

    friendly co-workers, awesome 40% discount, comfortable environment, break times.

    Cons

    I did not like the management at the Charlotte Russe location I worked at. I felt like it could have been better

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more friendly towards your employees because they are the face of the company, they are the ones who sell the product. Try to be more organized.

    Pros

    Everything! The best job I have ever worked for. The company, team, everything is just amazing.

    Cons

    Hours vary, usually low hours if you are unreliable, or a slow worker.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not favorite your workers.
