Ok. Lots of pressure to sell, hard to establish a customer base, store layout changes constantly.

Pros

Pleasant-looking, safe work environment, good hours. However, the layout of the store changes every few days so it's hard to get a handle on where things are, especially if you only work part-time.

Cons

It's difficult to establish your own customer base if you're new and all repeat customers have been "claimed." The recordkeeping/payroll/cash register/training computer software was very glitchy and outdated. Must clean the store if you're on the closing shift.

Advice to Management

Stop changing the store layout every couple of days!!!!!!!Upgrade your software/cash register so it's more intuitive and more reliable. Hire a company to do the vacuuming, dusting, garbage, etc rather than making nicely dressed employees do it.

  1. Overall I enjoyed working there. I would have moved on much sooner had I not had such a good team to work with.

    Pros

    The Fort Myers Campus has great amenities, coffee, sweet tea, water coolers, etc. Lots of parking. Cafes on site, post office, dry cleaners, many things to lure cultured people to Fort Myers.

    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 of the full-time designers are unhappy, and are not friendly toward freelance design contractors. They make it point to make things difficult for contractors, in all ways possible.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management treats contractors poorly. This should be approved upon.
