Not a good career choice

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)

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

ConsOverload 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 Senior ManagementCommunication 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!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Think twice Its not the fun filled atmosphere they lead you to believe.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    North Chicago, IL

    I worked at Claire's Stores full-time


    Pros: Benefits excellent, Pay fair, a learning experience Cons: 7 to 8 hr shifts alone. Tasks piled one on top of the other with no help and no payroll to get the job done.… Advice to Senior Management: Start over communicate on all levels retrain and teach your people to put value in those that work hard everyday to make your corporation… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    I loved this job even though I wasn't paid very well...

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Troy, MI

    I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time for more than a year


    Pros: Many opportunities for promotions, amazing management re-hired me whenever I was on break from college (even for just a couple weeks), fun place to… Cons: Not very well paid but you do get raises the longer you're there (without asking!), customers are annoying sometimes, stupid/annoying dress code, district manager shows… More
