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

I have been working at Chico's FAS part-time (less than a year)

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 The recordkeeping/payroll/cash register/training computer software was very glitchy and outdated.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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Merchandise, standard discount opportunities across all brands, clients, medical and stock purchase plan eligibility for PT employees.

    Cons

    Level of Responsibility (high degree of account management/B2C Work) and Pay are not well aligned for PT Employees who may not work enough hours or at the right times to achieve maximum comp opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worked there for several years. Loved the company but noticed its generous employee discount opportunities were decreased over the years. It's one of the things that made you great.

    Pros

    My District Sales Manger support was awesome.

    Cons

    When they opened a new store twenty minutes from mine it took them a year to adjust my monthly projections making it difficult to reach sales projections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not friend those who work with you. It will be difficult to reprimand them when they take advantage of your friendship. No socializing. Be nice and contribute to events, just don't go yourself.
