Pros

- Great discount; 30% off of everything, and you recieve %50 off anything in the store once a month. -The company cares about you and wants you to move up. -The company is strictly about customer service which i think is very important in a retail business. -The pay is very competitive.

Cons

-There are alot of promos,marketing changes, and markdowns and the company doesn't give you enough payroll hours to complete the tasks in the designated amount of time. - You sometimes have to work crazy hours, and having a weekend off is tough to get.

Advice to Management

I think management would be alot happier if there were more payroll hours to complete markdowns, marketing changes, and promos. When the expectation is not to start on these tasks until close, it is impossible to get them done in a hour with only you and an associate working.

    Pros

    -Truly a friendly bunch of people. Hardly any 'bitchy' fashion types -good work/life balance -if you're a complacent type, you can surely be a 'lifer'. -good vacation days and benefits

    Cons

    -Only way to get promoted is to stay much longer than necessary, or to get an offer elsewhere and hope for a counter. -no marketing strategy whatsoever -constant and moronic changes to appease business needs on the day to day, vs any kind of longterm strategy. -Had first year of no bonuses in company history, and i believe it will be a trend now.

    Advice to Management

    -fire yourselves, and hire people who understand what a strategy is and how to implement one. -The nepotism is demoralizing, and you are losing talented people because of it. More importantly, be covert about it, because the people you give a halo to are embarrassingly dumb, and make you look the same. -Pretending to pull the wool over your employees eyes is offensive and results in higher turnover.
