Pros

The discount, can earn bonus if you make planned sales

Cons

working nights, weekends, and holidays. cattiness between other stores when you're supposed to be part of the same team

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't put so much emphasis on training of the key holders if the store manager will always be required to be there!

No opinion of CEO

    Claire's itself is a great company, it is the store manager that makes or breaks it

    Pros

    you get a really good discount.
    it is fun to work there at times
    if you are manager you work by yourself a lot

    Cons

    you do not get a lot of hours. it really depends on the management of your store if you will like it or not. the dress code is bogus, you all have to wear the same color shirt. for example Monday for that week is pink everyone scheduled for Monday must wear pink. also you do not make enough money to go and buy all the stuff that is necessary to follow dress code

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    being a manager myself at Claire's i would say stop hiring so many third keys. there is no reason to have four of them, nobody gets enough hours to make the job worth it.

    Customers, Money, Experience, view of life,

    Cons

    time management, insulting, makes you depressed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Claire's feels more like a Pyramid Scheme then a retail store. It's a joke how the ADS determines a person's worth and value. (If it's not 16 or higher, you will get hell) Dress code is a joke. If one person wears jeans, everyone has to as well, along with a matching color top. (Which means buying new clothing for your store work attire) The pay is a joke for the tasks in demand. Get used to working all day alone, with no lunch break let alone toilet breaks. People need to be treated like people and not some slave in this store.
    In my life, I have never had a job this bad. It's so disorganized I am surprised this store is even still open. I have customers who come up to me asking, why every year the items get cheaper and don't last as long. *Low quality.
