I have been working at Chico's FAS

Pros

Lucrative bonus if you make sales plan
Good commission structure with no return penalty
Most stores aren't in malls so hours are more reasonable than typical retail hours

Cons

Personal sales goals for management has made it challenging to get all respinsibilities completed
Extremely reactive to challenging business- promos change way too often; confusing and upsetting the customer
STORE TAKES THE NEGATIVE SALES HIT FOR
ONLINE RETURNS!!! store is required to make up for lost volume
from online returns

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walk in Store Managers shoes for one month and experience how disorganized corporate office decisions look to the field. Allocations needs to do a better job getting replenishment out
to the west coast in a timely matter.

    Pros

    Good clientele and nice upscale boutique environment.

    Cons

    The bonus structure is not helpful since management and sales associates are both going after the same clients and bonuses which results in a clash of interests where almost always it is the management that wins. Management which works full time and is salaried should not be getting bonuses on sales. It is not uncommon for management to steal sales from associates and the latter not being able to do anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change your bonus structure.
