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 Management

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 Management

    None, an enjoyment to work with.

  2. Helpful (1)

    too much pressure on selling the store credit card!

    Pros

    easy tasks, most customers are nice, co workers are nice as well

    Cons

    Managers expect you to open new credit cards every day even though most people do not want to. Managers pressure the employees too much.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally. The people that have been working there longer know the business better than people that are being hired for management from stores like target and sears.
