I have been working at Coldwater Creek full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Customers are very friendly and nice. Associates are nice.

Cons

Shifts are cute more often than not. Over staffed so associates aren't scheduled but 10 - 15 hours a week (2 or 3 days) and more often than not less because shifts are cut. Lack of communication.
A lot of tasking on the sales floor and customers are not always given attenion because of tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less tasking and more sales. It's nice having an orderly store but not at the cost of customer service and sales (bottom line). When hours are cut because of lack of revenue the focus should be sles.

    Pros

    Great Manager (Fairview, TX), and excellent opportunity to learn retail. Great customers too!

    Cons

    Too much pressure from Corporate to get credit card apps and PSP appointments which turns the customer's off. I understand the necessity to drive customers into the store though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A huge "thank you" to Louise for teaching me to care about the product, hard work, and dedication, and giving me the opportunity to work for her and Coldwater Creek. I truly miss her and this store.

    Pros

    The town is beautiful and the cafeteria is nice.

    Cons

    Everything else. Not only would I not recommend working here, I would discourage it at all costs. It reminded me of the law office in the movie "The Firm" because when you sign on you are required to authorize a full background check and commit to one year. Not that the company will make the same commitment to you. I have since left, and have heard numerous stories about how the company has moved people there, tried them on for size, and then laid them off at about the 8th month. Oh, and forget about finding another comparable job in the area. You have just moved to Siberia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management is in desperate need of a shake up. I'd start with Dennis and work my way down from there. These are some of the most unprofessional people that I have ever witnessed in my life.
