Current Employee - Store Manager
Current Employee - Store Manager

Pros

Easy progression if your a supervisor who works hard.
50% off stock
Promoting our brand in dress up can be fun
Close knit team

Cons

Only getting paid for 40 even tho you can often work 50 hrs a week
skeleton staff,regardless of store turnover.
Ear piercing weeks are mayhem with no staff, customers end up very disgruntled.
working 14 days over Christmas with 1 day off is exhausting
staff have 4 hour contracts & don't stick around for long
Re training new staff without extra hours
Plano-gram & complete re merch of the store every 13 weeks
salary not very enticing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on supporting your teams who work hard, stay late & sleep eat & breathe claire's for results.
Reward/praise the teams that do well instead of naming & shaming stores that don't.

More hours would be more profitable to the company

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best things about working here are meeting new people and doing different things besides from just working on the till like piercing ears, and delivering great customer service.

    Cons

    Challenges are doing too many things at once, when someone is on their break and there's people cueing up and i'm also doing a piercing sometimes its really hard. some people get nasty whist waiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working for claires lets you bond with the manager because shes working on the floor too, so its always interesting and fun, but also scary at the same time to prove yourself, gives more of an uplift really.

    Work alone and make hardly anything

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If your a manager you get earned sick time, religious, personal and vacation pay.

    Cons

    You are required to get so much done in so little time. You are viewed as replaceable even after 7 years of being there. Your not valued what so ever. This is a national problem not just my area. I came from other states with different dms and rsm. They give no payroll to help get task done. You have to service customers do plano markdowns and clean with no help and god forbid a corp person walks in and u are doing task..u get chewed out cause customers should be more important yet if they walk in and no work is done then ur also getting yelled at

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. Pay them more or give more payroll to lighten the load.
