Employee discount, good training, friendly environment, loyal customers

Cons

Low pay scale, no routine schedule

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be great to be given a revolving schedule so that employees can plan appointments, etc. Working the same days/shifts from week to week would provide more flexibility for employees.

    Pros

    The clothing is great and versitile.

    Cons

    Wage freeze for 5 years for mgt and over 3 years for associates. DMs do not encourage or back their managers. There is a lack of balance between coaching and positive feedback. Very high turnover in Store Management. Company stock has plummetted and company has lost direction and lost sight of what it was to its core customers. They've cut off their foot despite themselves and can no longer sell product at full price. Constant discounts on top of discounts will eventually make this company fail completely and posibly go the way of Borders.

    Pros

    Employee Discounts
    Nice Co-workers
    Lovely customers
    Fun Atmosphere
    Nice Fitting Rooms

    Cons

    Lack of consistency in the expectations of company. Gestapo tactics used by mid-level management in enforcing ever changing corporate dictates. Too much work for too little money. No respect for store management from higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Court your old customers back with a return to your heyday. Allow the employees to share some of the customer service you used to be famous for. The sales driven model is not as attractive to the customers as the service driven model.
