Good although the piercings can be unnerving at first.

I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

The people i work with are great and around my age, so we like to do things outside of work together.

Cons

Sometimes it can be overwhelming when you are in the store alone and there is a lot of people. It can be hard to keep everyone happy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just make sure you let everyone know when you have made adjustments to the schedule.

    I have been working at Claire's Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary if you have a two family income. They teach you great customer service. Satisfaction in knowing your customers are satisfied. Great merchandise and display of merchandise. They have recently lightened up on the dress code and allowed dressy jeans. Yay!!! Ove all it's what you make of it..

    Cons

    The should pay more based on experience. DSM are some times hard to get a hold of... They don't answer or return calls. Not enough hours given for the task given. If upper management does nt like you, then you feel your job is in jeopardy. Very stressful. Having to work every weekend is ludicrous especially when you have a family. You have to requst a weekend when most jobs grant you at least ina weekend a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees!!!! They are taking care of you. You spend the weekends with your families, we would love to do the same. I hope the new guy knows this and will make that change...

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

    Pros

    The environment is cool. If you like all things girly this would be a OK place to work. Best thing about the job is piercing ears and the discount.

    Cons

    Management expects way to much. In most stores its only about 4-6 people on the payroll. store manager, assistant manger, key holder and 2 part time associates. sometimes you are expected to open the store alone and stand there for at least 4-5 hours before the next person comes in.
    leaving you with tons of shipment to sort and display, keeping the store clean, ringing customers and piercing ears ALONE !! even the greatest multi-tasker would have difficulties. Senior management dosnt believe in work - life balance at all they try and drill it into your head that Claire's is supposed to be your life inside and outside of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of dictating everything from behind a computer screen, Try working in the store as a manager and see what the employees have to deal with to make it through the day.
