I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time (more than a year)

Pros

50% off discount, employee rewards for meeting store goals, nice coworkers

Cons

Based on how hard you work from management pushing you and because it is a high end store- it should be commisioned or a higher salary than starting off at 8.50 since uncommissioned. Too many employees results in fewer work hours. Annoying to pressure clients into getting credit card.

    I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - depending on your in-store management, the sales environment can be relaxed
    - the clientele can be enjoyable
    - the clothing is versatile and ranges in age appropriateness
    - good clothing discount
    - flexible hours

    Cons

    - some stores track your sales by name which can cause drama among associates (no commission however)
    - on the flip side, the clientele can be awfully rude and cheap
    - constant promotion sales, coupons, and policy changes that are nearly impossible to keep track of
    - pressure to open Ann Taylor cards, which clients complain and get complications about to you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the sales and marketing promotions are ridiculous and employees are just as misinformed as the customers

    No opinion of CEO
