Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at Chico's FAS full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Customers. Co workers. Built great friendships with peers. Can be a lot of fun in certain stores.

Cons

District manager and regional manager are bullies. Slap you down rather than build you up. Threaten your job almost daily. They lie. A lot. Not a culture of trust. Pulled off floor for ridiculous, waste of time conference calls. So worried about getting "numbers" that customers were made to wait!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Back off with all the micro-managing. Support your staff. Time to get rid of the bullies. An atmosphere of fear is not the company Marvin and Helene built.

    I worked at Chico's FAS full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best is the customers and the clothes.

    Cons

    Depending on the Manager, it can be a nightmare of a place to work, big egos and big expectations, you are required to maintain a bonus of $3.00 per hour and sales are not fairly distributed of non personal regular customers. Pushed to sell at least 3 items to each customer. Return policy not conducive with other retailers. Lost customers because of it. to many calls every week and a half to customers. Overkill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a moment and listen to associates, and monitor each Managers sales, and transactions, my manager would come out of the back and take up to 5 customers , have them all in dressing rooms, o sharing no turning over to other associates, make her sales her bonus and go in the back and gossip on the phone the rest of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should never treat the sales people poorly. It's a common practice. Some sad way they think this motivated ????
