I worked at Claire's Stores

Pros

Fun people, learning to pierce, lots of business on weekends, stay pretty busy throughout the week, 50% off merchandise in Icing as well!

Cons

horrible management, sneaky management, not enough hours, rarely promote within! lost a cd with confidential information! raises are rare. constantly changing of management to entire staff. turnover rate is horrifying.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

FIND A NEW JOB . YOU SUCK AT WHAT YOU DO. people are always quitting, you need to promote within and hire better store managers and district managers.

    I have been working at Claire's Stores

    Pros

    Great discount on merchandise, working with and helping different kinds of people, never bored because there is always something to do!, promotes from within company, never stale and always changing.

    Cons

    not enough pay for the amount of responsibility, high staffing turnover rate, career advancement only goes so far, lots of shoplifters, sometimes unrealistic directives from corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loving the improvements and advancements in communication to store level but sometimes the directives and time frames are unrealistic. Managers are responsible for much more than they were even five years ago however, are not being paid more.
