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

Pros

Discount
Ear piercing was actually fun
Ability to connect more with coworkers since it's a smaller space/store

Cons

Schedule and hours would change every week and sometimes in the same week
No flexibility - It may depend on your location but my manager(s) were not willing to work with my schedule at all
Low pay for all of the tasks that you have accomplish on a daily
Too many tasks given to achieve the high level of sales goals given each day
Can be really stressful at times

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

    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!

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

    I have been working at Claire's Stores part-time (less than a year)

    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.
