You put in a lot of work, but a good place to start

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Springfield, MO

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

Pros50% discount on merchandise. Great experience and was a great place to put on your resume. Got to be trendy and have my tattoos and nose piercing.

ConsThey do not give you enough work-task balance time, especially in a high volume store. They want you to be by yourself, check and start shipment, help customers, and pierce customers ears. Not enough pay for what you have to do in management.

Fun at times but not enough hours/people

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

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


Pros: Piercing ears is really fun, I love talking with the customers and really getting to know them, then helping others find jewelry for specific events,… Cons: Not enough hours in a day to do everything they want done. You are expected to work new planograms, sort shipment (usually 3-9 boxes at… Advice to Senior Management: Give more hours to your stores, you will notice increase sales and lower shrink especially if you give hours to properly train associates. Reduce… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
