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

    Pros

    Great discount. The focus of the company is to provide a great experience for the customer, and this is something they focus on in their intensive training program that was recently updated. A service all stores can provide, even though some don't bother with, are the Celebrate Parties for kids. The parties are fun and break up the monotony of the day to day work by letting you play with the kids.

    Cons

    The amount stress and overall experience in the store can vary widely depending on your District Manager. The pay is on the low end, and unless you are a high traffic store you operate at the minimum amount of hours to function. Only Store Managers and Assistant store Managers are eligible for benefits and bonuses. Keyholders are expected to be fully invested in the store while only being scheduled 10-20 hours a week so the turn over rate for this position is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in your Keyholders, the store depends on them to function. Maybe add another position for part time management with guaranteed amount of hours to entice employees to stay and be more invested. Corporate needs to get with the times and begin online applications for in store positions.

    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.
