Not fun.

Current Employee - Sales Associate

Pros

50% discount on purchases, participation in monthly bonus for every team member in the store (excluding managers) can have a flexible schedule which is good while attending school.

Cons

Weekend working schedules. Opportunity to advance is limited and not really promoted. Low starting base pay and annual raises are small ( between .12c and .25c per hour) annual review process is not very meaningful - such going through the motions , very cookie cutter, no career development plans.

    Pros

    The employee discount is quite good and did meet some other personable down to earth employees.

    Cons

    The work environment was very strict, didn't seem to have a lot FUN while I was working. A lot of the shift managers always seemed to give me negative feedback and never would really complement me in anyway on the work that I had done a good job on. There are way to strict deadlines to get things accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give equal respect to all employees, that seems to be a common theme among other disgruntled employees who are writing reviews. Listen to employees and value their opinions. Shift managers have to be chosen a bit better, I'm certainly not one to badmouth people but a lot of them had some serious attitude and it was at times very unbearable to work with them.

    Pros

    Wonderful discount and working with great people, especially the leadership team. Easy product to sell because it is well made and fashionable.

    Cons

    Same as any other retail job: inconsistent hours, low pay, and working on or around holidays. No commission for clothes sales, sadly, but small amount for credit cards sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, an enjoyment to work with.
