Pros

The clothes are great they sell themselves. You get a nice discount with special chances to get a deeper discount at certain times. The people and customers are fun. You get a chance to earn a lot of extra money through their bonus system.

Cons

Alot is expected of you. You get constant emails daily and the expectations are always changing. You have to get everything done at once and help the customers. The hourly salary is just not enough to live on. It is fine if the money you earn is just yourfun money. Otherwise, you can't make a living on it. It is alot of work for not alot of money.

Advice to Management

Stop being so demanding. Let the stores sell. Do not boggle them down with minutia and tasks. Pay a decent wage. You would be able to keep more of your good people.

    Pros

    Benefits, Ammenities, Facilities, Comradery, Location

    Cons

    No work/life balance; Upper management is professional for new hires, but do not take care of long term employees. Bonus structure is not strong. Often no lunch break. Meetings all day (no at desk work time). Systems are archaic. Almost each associate is responsible for 2 positions.

    Advice to Management

    You save more money from promoting within, however, this is said but not often done. New associates have more onboarding opportunities. Too many chiefs, not enough indians. Productivity is down based on the number of employees, however this is a macro view of the company and is not considered department by department. Employees are responsible for multiple jobs and work extremely long hours. Lunch breaks are almost non-existent. If you speak to management about it, they make you feel like you are unprofessional for expecting time with your family. The people who have worked at Chico's the longest are loyal to your company. Make them feel appreciated and respected. Compensate them for their jobs. These are the people who train new associates and keep the business running. It's important to keep them with your company for the long run.

    Pros

    The clothes are so pretty. Their was a lot of sales volume and it was not hard to make a sale

    Cons

    I did not obtain many hours, but the customers were very friendly when I did work. More employee benefits would be cool.

    Advice to Management

    Only hire people if you give them hours, it is very dissappointing working and not be able to work. Or trying to work, but you have not too much experience with no hours.
