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

Pros

Loved the customers and the clothes.

Cons

Horrible management, very stressfully pushy commissioned sales environment, unskilled store manager, pay is poor and whole attitude of upper management is terrible. I work at a competitor now with two other X Chico's employees and am much happier!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your commission based so called the "customer is everything" system sucks! My manger would literally steal sales from me right on the sales floor right in front of customers and cause animosity and fights on the sales floor. I have been in retail my entire life and have never worked in such a horrible environment.

    I worked at Chico's FAS part-time (less than an 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.
