Pros

Very friendly and pleasant co-workers. Good discount.

Cons

Management is constantly pushing us to "get cards". Selling only one item at a time is also cause for management to get on your case.

Advice to Management

If you want us to build relationships with clients stop pushing the credit card on people. It is off-putting for the client and the sales associates.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, discount is generous

    Cons

    Rude customers, pushy management, gossip and endless drama, not enough hours for anybody

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing employees to Patronize customers about credit cards the more you push it on them the more they become frustrated. Co-Manager at the Houston Premium Outlets has no respect for customers and employees it's very embarrassing and super unprofessional.

    Pros

    Discount
    Visually a beautiful store to work

    Cons

    It's a shame that such a well known brand fosters an environment of leading by fear.

    Advice to Management

    Require your Store Managers to dress professionally as they expect other staff. Require that customers are greeted with sincerity.
    Have your district manager review/approve any employment ads posted on Craigslist. Saw an ad which the grammar and sentence structure was atrocious!! Is that how your company is represented!!
