    I worked at Chico's FAS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You learn how to sell well - the clothes are fun & interesting - face-paced as far as retail goes

    Cons

    If you're younger than 35 apply to another one of their businesses like White House Black Market - you'll enjoy the discount/working environment more

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
