I worked at Christopher & Banks

Pros

Fabulous Clothing discount, great opportunities to interact one on one with the customers, many who are repeat customers.

Cons

Very slow paced, often long stretches go by with no customers in the store, which can make for a long working day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A better or communication process for new associates. Time should be set aside for training and guidance so one would know what to expect and know.

    Pros

    The employee discount, and ability to wear modern denim to work is definitely a plus. The clothes are cute, modern, comfortable, and affordable, particularly when there are sales.

    Cons

    the pay is NOT competitive with other women's apparel retailers. And when there are in-store discounts, they sometimes are as good if not better than the employee discount... which doesn't make the employee discount something of great value to compensate for the low wages. Additional discounts, even if only 10% below what the customer is receiving during those times would boost morale and make for a better environment and happier staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to work store management to death. They continue to add duties for their salaried managers,without providing additional compensation or benefits to make it worthwhile for their employees.

    Pros

    There is a 50% discount on clothes.

    Cons

    Work overload. Too many floor moves. Too many emails and reporting and closing procedures. Not enough autonomy. Salary very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat store managers are the leaders they are. Don't talk down to them. Pay them a decent wage. They do a lot of jumping through hoops to get things done.
