Absolute WORST job I have ever had.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Claire's Stores full-time for less than a year

Pros- Get to pierce ears
- Nice discount on items
- Work alone a lot (good and bad?)

Cons- Very LOW payroll
- Training system is a joke
- Constantly being told you're "watched" by the District Manager
- Stupid daily tasks that are unnecessary
- Working alone a lot, and when it gets busy you're supposed to deal with ear piercings, ringing out customers and explaining the "Ten for Ten" discount thirty times
- Terrible wages
- Very unflexible scheduling

Advice to Senior ManagementI was the assistant manager, and I would like to advise my manager and district manager to be more flexible with schedules. I wasn't allowed to take off my COMMENCEMENT day for graduation--seriously?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Where do I begin . . . ?

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
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… 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… Advice to Senior Management: 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… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
