    Current Employee - Store Manager in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    Making your own schedule is a great benefit. The benefits; insurance, 401k, vacation is all competitive.

    Cons

    All the blackout dates, besides the normal for the holiday season.
    The constant, it's never good enough.
    The lack of payroll. What a joke.
    After a store manager there really isn't any where to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the field. The payroll is no where near enough for all the tasks and taking care of out customers.

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager

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

    Pros

    Ear piercing, although some families are difficult!
    Cute kids, most of the time!
    Always busy, never bored.
    Great vacation hrs

    Cons

    Overload of work
    Poorly paid regardless of past experiences! Third Keys are paid the worst & have a lot of responsibles, some being paid only a dollar more than sales associates!
    Under pressure to achieve every goal you are given, ep, ads, upt, sales, cashwrap, etc......
    Not always appreciated
    Micro managed
    On your own a lot without a break
    Inadequate hours to achieve tasks, visuals, markdowns etc.... Super woman is not real!!
    10 for 10, the worst! Customers are dumb, constantly repeating an explanation of promo!
    Customers complain about almost everything & will report you to Company of their 'bad' experience even though you were following policy!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is the worst, DSM does not follow up with phone calls until a few days later!
    Managers 'run' to DSM with almost every problem, GROW UP!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
