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

    Pros

    Discount is great at 50% off most everything. Flexible hours. Full time employees qualify for health insurance, vacation, sick time, payed holidays, and opportunity for quarterly bonus. Even part-time 3rd Key's get vacation time that builds over time.

    Cons

    Only the manager gets guaranteed 40 hours. Full-time is really more like 32-38 hours (except Holiday season.) The hours provided to the stores are very minimal. They give us so many tasks to do but with only one person in the store most of the time, it is very hard to do your job quickly and well. Monthly markdowns, monthly visual planograms, sort shipment everyday, ear piercings, ringing up customers, looking out for shoplifters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise your employees when they do well! You only hear the negative but seldom will you get a "Good job." Corporate really needs to realize that the amount of hours given per week are not enough for the many tasks you have to perform and at the same time keeping customers happy. We aren't robots!
