Pros

A nice way to quickly get fashion industry experience, you get to work in with higher end cloths and see what the market trends and latest styles are

Cons

This company is a struggling one, or seems so at times. You have nearly no notice for sales or large events, you literally come into the store and find that everything is 40% or 50% off

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Easy hours, relatively easy merchandise styles. No shortage control, possibly a struggling company

    Fun, but the management isn't great.

    Pros

    Most of the other employees are nice. There is a 50% discount and we receive a lot of vouchers for 75% off certain items. It's fun!

    Cons

    Sometimes the store can be horrible. However, the bad ones usually get fired pretty quickly. Also, sometimes it is really hard to get enough hours if customers aren't coming in as much as usual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees and stop stealing from the store!
