    I worked at Coldwater Creek

    Pros

    friendly co-workers, good at allowing time off and working around your schedule, nice employee discount available, hours are reasonable and management is good at providing the number of hours requested

    Cons

    there are not too many cons at this company, as they try to work with the employees for the most part, but the back room in some of the stores are very difficult to work in as they are very crowded

    Pros

    The management in the Grosse Pointe store was very good. There was a real team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very little pay for the amount of work. Especially for the people working on shipment or doing display changes at
    night or in the very early morning.

    Pros

    I loved Coldwater for putting the customer first. Coldwater believed in a team atmosphere. Managers were able to build their team through rotating areas of responsibility allowing all aspects of the business to be learned. The company created a partnership with all members from the president to the sales associates.

    Cons

    The Company lost its competitive edge and had to file for bankruptcy.

    Pros

    Located in a small town, the benefits and pay were good in comparison to any other local companies. People were excellent to work with and many friendships were made.

    Cons

    Extremely top-heavy company and management had little direction of where to take the company. The hard choices to close unprofitable stores was never taken and the company went bankrupt.

    Pros

    Some of the pros were: discounts on merchandise and a friendly work environment. There wasn't much else to consider as it is a retail job.

    Cons

    No time off, of course and little potential for growth. I worked there for a few years and nobody ever got a raise. Very uncertain schedule, have to wait until the week before to make plans because your schedule varies so much.
