I worked at Chico's FAS part-time for less than a year

Pros

Good place to work if nothing else is available.

Cons

Petty, underqualified store management, cliquish, unfair distribution of work and hours. Too much micro management in the form of time-consuming reports that do little to promote sales. Very gimmick-ie sales games. Over-priced merchandise, little manufactured in the U.S. Out-dated point of sale computers and programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell more American made merchandise. Trust what you sell to be the draw for your customers, not the ridiculous "sales events" which fool no-one.

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

    Pros

    The customers are fun even if you don't say the script given by Chico's, they want to be talked to like you are a human. If you have a great team which is built by the store manager it all falls into place.

    Cons

    District managers cause chaos in the stores. They do not know how to be in that position, they are negative and bring the store down when they come. No one is good enough for them and they do not project a good image for the company. Is that the way to do business?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training of District management is overdue. The position should be a positive experience for the store manager and staff. I actually had one DM manhandle me on the sales floor, they don't know how to sell, always yelling out for someone to help them. The one I am referring to has been with the company a long time and is so bad at the job and I hear is getting worse. Check out the PNW Chico's, you have a problem there.
