Current Employee - Third Key Holder in DeKalb, IL

I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Third Key in North Attleboro, MA

    I worked at Claire's Stores full-time for 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.
