Pros

Great experience, their standards make you a perfectionist basically. Very flexible when it comes to your schedule, I love how easy it is to adjust and make changes, request days off on the anfcorp. You meet a lot of great people.

Cons

You have to work very hard to get shifts. Not many people get shifts, some get a lot. You have to really impress managers, don't be lazy, & always be in AAA/Look Policy. Only two people a year get a raise.

Advice to Management

More than two people per store deserve a raise.

    Pros

    All comes down to what store you're in. I was hired in a great store with amazing people who are still close friends now that I left. Awesome soundtrack; the cologne is hardly noticeable after working there and is something I still wear now. Manager In Training (MIT) program is awesome because you can move as fast/slow as you want; with the right amount of managers, your hours are decent and generally get to leave when your shift ends. Paid recruiting in the mall or going to campus was always fun. Company hires based on looks (it's a modeling retail store- complain all you want, but that's what they stand for). One interview with a District Manager (DM). I loved the company and the people. I would definitely return to the company if under new management.

    Cons

    District Manager (DM) and Regional Manager (RM) for my area were terrible. Specifically, when the RM transferred to our region, all 7 Store Managers (SMs) quit within the first six months of her transfer. High turnover rate with management which makes for faster promotion (in some cases) and hinders you in others. DM asked me to manage a store after telling me it was an hour away; store was actually 2 1/2 hours away and company erased all history of having travelled there and refused to reimburse me. District Loss Prevention Manager (DLPM) became a jerk after being promoted. He threatened to fire me after I contacted a lawyer when he erased video information of a customer assaulting another Assistant Manager (AM). Required to work overtime after Manager In Training (MIT) is over especially in holiday season. This should be expected because it's like that in any store in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Have RESPECT for employees. We're humans not animals. Stop bashing the public and making store associates/managers have to deal with the mess.
