Pros

Ok. I have something good to say. If you are over 40, over 50, and even over 60 or 70, and present yourself well, Chico's will give you a chance. Of course, you need to be computer savvy, a multi-tasker par excellence, competitive, outgoing, energetic, physically fit, focused, willing to do grunt work, and willing to work abhorrent hours and all holidays,they will tolerate your beginner's mistakes and afford you the opportunity to ascend the learning curve--albeit it had better be rapidly. Yes, the pace is frenetic and there is plenty of non-commissionable work, but to have the opportunity--any MEANINGFUL opportunity--,at this age to acquire expertise is astonishing. If you can survive Chico's, I would venture to say that there is no retail environment in which you would not excel. They will give you the chance to be fabulous.

Cons

Many. But that's not the point, here

    Pros

    It can be one of the best places to work under certain circumstances. You are constantly juggling tasks.

    Cons

    It seems like the workers are treated as potential customers. You are constantly encouraged to buy more clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really should have an HR department because there is so much things that happen behind the scenes.
