It's an ok place to work

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

ProsIf your full time they have great benefits. You get a great discount.

ConsIt's retail... Long hours on your feet, you have to work nights and pretty much every weekend, this makes it hard to have a work life balance. It's hard to get promoted, it seems more about who you know rather than what you know. Drama!! At least in my store.

Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of inconsistency with lower management. I would suggest a more rigorous training program for those being promoted into higher positions. I also feel a lot of good promotable talent is lost due to cutting of hours during slow times.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Year Is Long Enough....

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Dress Barn part-time for more than a year


    Pros: In my experience, I've gotten a fairly generous associate discount (even if it makes things the price you'd pay at a competitor in my opinion),… Cons: I have three huge complaints that will end my employment with this company soon (In the next month to be exact) - 1. … Advice to Senior Management: Dress Barn could be a fantastic place to work but the reality is that it simply isn't. Members of the store barely get raises… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
