Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at Claire's Stores full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

company has a ton of long term members
fun atmosphere
love the ear piercing

Cons

the upermanagement say they like to promote from within the company, but truth is, it's very hard to move up to higher management
the work load is extremly huge, with small staffs, little hours and low pay for sales associates, 3rd keys, assistant managers, and store managers
If you move up in statis (example store manager trainer) there is no pay increase.

    Pros

    Fun environment, products really sell themselves and it's a super easy job.

    Cons

    Entirely too many floor changes. There are a million items in the store and every little thing has to be changed to a completely different area of the store, while the store is open. It's very messy.

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

    Pros

    the only pro is 50% off discount

    Cons

    scheduling was difficult, never a employee meeting, i was never able to take a break because i always worked alone. it's a lot of work for the pay. store is not organized. to many lies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sales and signage change really often. create a lot of work for the money paid. not enough incentives to keep positive attitudes up. scheduling was always difficult. try to transfer to a store closer to home was like playing games with the district manager. i was never able to take a break because i always worked alone!
