No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Gives vacation time to lower level management Piercing ears is usually a rewarding experience

Cons

Upper management does not always understand how stores actually function High expectations that cannot always be met Odd hours

Advice to Management

Make sure that managers are not promoted before they are ready, because it makes the store worse. While associates can drive sales, they cannot make customers spend more than they want to spend, and it is unreasonable to think that we can pressure people into spending that extra money. Reward employees that put in the extra effort instead of ignoring their sacrifices.

    I worked at Claire's Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for extra hours. I really enjoyed being able to do ear piercings (except on babies). Following planograms and sometimes having to make up your own was a lot of fun. Selling more add on items was not at all a problem because i actually love almost everything the store carries.

    Cons

    Same as anywhere else, co-workers. Working alone Saturday mornings having a line to the door and also having people that needed ear piercings.


  2. Out dated computer systems, unorganized retail operations
