Managers are top notch!

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Reston, VA

ProsGreat work environment of positive and fun people. Everyone loves Athleta clothing! Commonly hear from customer's "I need to get out of here. Everything is sooo cute. I want it all." Return policy - Return it at anytime for any reason. Can't beat that! The discount is very generous and applies to Athleta and other Gap stores. Customer service is top notch as well. Very friendly and catered to helping the customer. Management is very experienced and hard working. No slackers at all!

ConsAthleta clothing is very expensive. Return policy for employees is return within 30 days and must have the tag attached. In other words you can't wear, wash and return unless it's defective in some way. Having a different schedule every week can be stressful when you have other commitments. Turnover is moderate. Have made a ton of friends but majority have left for other jobs, move, going back to school etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry a set schedule for your top notch loyal employees. Give the same Return policy to your employees. They work very hard to service the customer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Why call it a lifestyle brand when the people who work there RARELY workout and are stressed-out all the time?
