Pros

Even if customer make returns, you keep your bonus.

Cons

Don't know their future direction, lack of communication from HQ

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give some names and faces of HQ staff, someone who is open for dialogue, too much is being pushed top-down. The sales associates are the ones who bring in the income to the company, listen to them!

    Great associates, but poor management

    Pros

    Fun, lively atmosphere with wonderful customers and associates

    Cons

    Management is disorganized, schedules are done at the last minute and employees are not appreciated and management (district managers) act like "bullies." The company wants part-time associates to put Chico's in front of everything in their personal life and be "on call."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage - rather than criticize- sales associates. Make the work environment fun and uplifting to create a wonderful uptempo and mood in the stores
