Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager

I have been working at Coldwater Creek full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, salary is decent.

Cons

clothes are for older women, so it is hard to sell to the younger generation. Company seems to be losing money and not making money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give management a better discount if you want them to wear your clothes, the prices are so high that even the employee discount doesn't help. keep a promo for longer then a day, it gets confusing for the part time associates and for our customers that come in twice a week

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

    Pros

    Coldwater Creek has some of the most thoughtful and nice employee around. If you work in the main corporate office there are a lot of perks, if you work anywhere outside that its a job.

    The pay at Coldwater is very fair.

    Cons

    Management keeps changing their minds about the course of action, way too many meetings that get nothing accomplished. Too many influences so they change their minds constantly about the direction they want to go without telling those who are doing the work.

    People who have been there for a while become Managers without any proven skills in managing people or skill sets.

    The HR department is the worst I have ever come up against, they all need skills training themselves, how are they the gate keepers to good employees.

    Way too many old people with lack of skills hiding and collecting great salaries.

    The store merchants couldn't pick a winner if there was only one horse in the race.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the entire HR Department and the Merchants too. Why do you need merchants anyway?
