Busy, and can potentially make you good money.

Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Napa, CA

ProsClothes and accessories are cute. Hourly rate of pay PLUS commission which is hard to find nowadays.

ConsExpectations for sales and clienteling is a little ridiculous. They don't care about HOW much you sell if you aren't reaching your BPH which is Bonus per Hour. You don't make a dollar in commission unless your sale is over $150. A $300 sale will get you 5 bucks. For someone working 25 hours you MUST make at least 75 dollars in COMMISSION sales a week divide that by your 25 hours worked and you get a $3 BPH which is expected or you will be fired. Sales would be a lot easier if there wasn't a promo everyday knocking off a huge amount. Good for the customer, bad for you. Calling campaigns (cold calling) is expected and required. Your clients get MAD about the constant calls.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere isn't enough staff on at once to expect the customers to get the "chicos experience". Staff has too much to do at once. Write thank you notes, sell, tasks, go backs etc. you are expected to write notes on your 10 min break? Um, that's against the law.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Steep Descent for Sales Associates

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Chico's FAS part-time


    Pros: Pretty much all gone ... Feels as if it's just not worth it anymore to dress up, pay for dry cleaning and gas, wear uncomfortable… Cons: Feels as if there's a conspiracy (aka corporate mandate) to turn this into a $10.00/hour job, like The Gap, where talented sales people ring up… Advice to Senior Management: For a company that has a metric for everything, they might consider the cost associated with unhappy employees and very… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Frontline Design Is Not a Good Place to Be

    C2PO (Former Employee)
    Fort Myers, FL

    I worked at Chico's FAS as a contractor for less than a year


    Pros: The Fort Myers Campus has great amenities, coffee, sweet tea, water coolers, etc. Lots of parking.… Cons: The design team for Outlets is an amazingly great group of people. However, the Design team for Chico's Frontline is a very unhappy place. Most… Advice to Senior Management: Middle management treats contractors poorly. This should be approved upon. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
