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

Pros

Always something to do, hours are good, slight discount.

Cons

Customers mess up the store all day every day and you hace to fix the same things many times a day. Closing is tedious.

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

    Pros

    - discount?? sorry i have not had the best experience ever. I wouldn't know what else to add.

    Cons

    -the discount is nice, but then again you always have to be buying stuff. -there are no breaks, it doesn't matter if you work 8/9/10 hours -work every weekend. -people don't last -there is no real HR, the environment is not the best. -payroll is non existant -SM's biggest fighting tool is "ill talk to the dm"

    Advice to Management

    DMs only interact with the store managers leaving everybody behind. What about when the managers are the problem? :)

    I worked at Claire's Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy sells due to Claire's branding, good ear piercing experience, merchandising the product is fun, customer service opportunities, can get closer with staff due to down time, store discounts are generally around 50%, great benefits, a low amount of work hours, tons of signs to set.

    Cons

    Low pay with extremely low raises, the hiring of extremely young and inexperienced Store Managers and District Managers, lack of integrity with the DM's, upper mgmt. not answering their phones, not straight forward with the planogram sets, emotional regional who acts extremely unprofessional, unorganized DM's, micromanagement to its fullest, stores are super empty on the weekdays so it gets boring,not enough work to do when a set isn't happening, no cameras,hard to take vacations, very political,the Claires low volume and low square footage stores look poor on a resume.

    Advice to Management

    Pull people into the company with integrity and a decent amount of retail experience. It's not right to have the SM's take the fall for the young and inexperienced DM's who are really still learning the job being that its their first DM position in their life.
