Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager  in  San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

- tolerable if this is your 2nd job
- not that stressful if you have an understanding and flexible manager
- not that strict when you need bathroom breaks often or go get a drink or something . .

Cons

- unrealistic deadlines/goals (markdowns, planograms, CNN's, promo recaps, cw's, ads, upt)
- you'll get in trouble and the possibility of getting a write up when you call-in-sick
- very, very low pay - - and I mean almost minimum wage (management)
- appraisal review is a JOKE! $.09 increase for a year! -- are you kidding me?!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please, please know how a store runs from the inside; I mean everyday situations like :
- MD's for 4 days on top of superb Customer Service
- Planograms - make an exact floorplan for each store!
- DM visits - pls visit when there's no planogram changes!! omg! all the time they visit, it is always, always on plano season! is it just me or what?

    I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun at times, REALLY great discount.

    Cons

    RECOVERY SUCKS!! and you have to deal with everyone's BS 50% of the time. The company gets you in trouble for not making good sales when its not really your fault or theres nothing you can do about it.
