I worked at Claire's Stores part-time for 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 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discount, interesting clientele, good training on ear piercings.

    Cons

    Pay is awful. & It's a predominantly female population, with a lot of female drama. I don't think there's been a day where I've worked with one person to listen to them complain about another. There's a lot of politics that comes with the job in house. If you have good management, then your work-life balance can be awesome but at the same time they may completely ignore you for hours in the future. I've gone two weeks where I literally only worked 4 hours. Also, none of the product really changes and visual merchandising can be super easy or really tedious, like I said: depends on management. Also, when I say management I don't mean management to include third keys and the ASM. Just the actual manager & the DSM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your managers more, and don't have so many in one store. There needs to be more sales associates.

    I have been working at Claire's Stores full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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