I worked at Claire's Stores

Pros

Fun Environment
Personable Co-workers
Generous 50% off employee discount

Cons

Work alone often
Alot of responsibilty/expectations for Very low pay
Not enough payroll hours for employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open upper level/corporate positions should be sent to employees via memopack in order to promote store managers who are interested in higher level positions with the company. More payroll hours should be allocated to every store so that 2 employees are working at all times in order to alleviate stress of Managers concerning loss prevention, ear piercing and lost sales opportunites.

    Pros

    You get a 50% discount, learn how to ear pierce, interact with a lot of kids, flexible hours, easy to move up in the store.

    Cons

    10 FOR 10 SALE! When it's going on, be prepared to be asked every two seconds to explain it or how much certain items are. Our DM treats us unfairly. You don't get paid enough. There are days I'm running the entire store by myself. Since we are a bigger store, we get shipment EVERY DAY. We have so much back stock, we could open another store. We even have an off grounds storage unit. It's insane. I'm just using this store for management experience. I can't see myself here for more than 3 years, and even that is a stretch.

    Pros

    Nice customers and employees. Great work environment. Awesome discount.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Promised opportunities but don't deliver. On call shift scheduled but never work them. No breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is overworked. Become snappy to customers and employees. No employees only managers to do everything.
