Pros

Long term as long as did your job and drove biz

Cons

Transition to new company not fair, missed out on a lot of great talent. Hate to see that, would never work for any of the other divisions treat people unfairly.

Advice to Management

Numerous managers committed until the end out of loyalty to upper management and respect for years of employment only to be left without jobs that are available within the company, due to the way we were passed over we would turn down if offered now just needed someone to know how much great talent will never walk through your doors again!

    Pros

    I think the most positive experiences at Charming Shoppes was the ability to move up the ladder and be promoted within the company. The location, cafateria and employee benefits were also great.

    Cons

    The biggest con to working at this company in this position was the number of hours worked and overtime needed in order to finish the workload. I worked an extremely large amount of overtime without pay due to workload. I did have one assistant, but clearly it should have been set-up like the merchandising side with an Assistant and Assosicate support staff. Another con is how a lot of the new younger set of employees coming in from school thought they owned the place and did everything in their power to talk about you behind your back to the point of workplace bullying and schemed to get your position.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources needs to listen more to their employees when there are negative things going on their workplace and take action instead of sitting on their butts and doing nothing.

  2. Overall OK not the worst company to work for
