Was not treated in a professional manner by store manager. Preferential treatment to favored employees.

    I worked at Christopher & Banks full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relationship with customers was the best! You build trust with them and they became friends for life.

    Cons

    The past 4 years has been a struggle for the company to hire a District Manager for our area
    with superior knowledge, hire standards of employee relationships, and coaching with trust and
    values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hire over the phone, face to face interview. Show trust in managers that they will not be threaten by District Managers or Regional Managers if they have a concern about their management. Managers need to be able to have trust in their Human Resource Dept and be represented in a professional way! Managers and teams of stores are the rock of the company
    and should be valued in more of a positive way.

    I worked at Christopher & Banks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were pretty great. Very professional field management team.

    Cons

    Promotions and salaries were not determined by effort and determination but were driven by personal relationships. I had 5 bosses in 6 years. Most I would not identify as professional leadership possessing integrity. The company drives their executives like tortured farm mules and then one day they will set each one down and give them their walking papers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people from the top down with integrity. Conduct background checks and verify education. Hold leaders accountable when they retaliate on Associates that rightfully raise a concern, rather then turning a blind eye.
