    Pros

    Good for professional growth. Most times promotions are given within the company as long as they have qualified individuals.

    Cons

    Pay rates and sometimes not enough employees scheduled for the volume of work.

    Pros

    the environment is always upbeat, a lot to do to keep you busy.

    Cons

    lack of payroll during peak times. Not enough attention to hardworking people. No promotions available once you reach the top tier of field management.

    support those who want to move up and be a larger part in the organization.

    Pros

    I loved the discount and the clothes. Loved the girls I worked with, just wish there was more consistency and they give seniority more hours than just recently hired associates.

    Cons

    No consistent management. They began to hire a bunch of sales associates at one point which brought all of our hours way way down!

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who will actually stay as manager instead of so many that couldn't handle it.

    Pros

    if you love clothes and a great discount can make friends throught clientale.

    Cons

    it is very stressful mainly because you work on one part coverage and there will be shoplifters in the front of your store people in your fitting rooms youre ringing up customers and the phone ringing all at once. They decide to do promotion changes an hour before you are supposed to close the store so youre there alone doing signs and windows.

    Advice to Management

    stop being so cheap and give more budget hours and give the stores some kind of security on the clothing.offer more than 5 hours a week and not minimum wage.
