Pros

The company has great clothes and gives you an awesome discount.
Great management team.
Really education you about the fashion industry.
Easy to move up to management.

Cons

The company doesn't care about their associate.
High turn over rate.
Pay is definitely NOT enough!!!
Way to much pressure to make you're goals.
Clothes is pretty expensive.
Pressure to shop during extra discount.
Not enought hours for associates, so management is obligated to work over 40 hours with no additional pay.
Shipment time is unrealistic.
Never having items in stock for customers.
Store and customer relations guidelines aren't the same.
Customer relations isn't open after 5:00pm eastern standard time wtf people is the west have issues too.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if we could get paid more. I really love this company, but the pay isn't worth all the stress. I feel like I'm always going over and beyond for this company, and I'm not sure why. We lose associated all the time to company's that are willing to pay more. Oh and not having enought hours to get everything the company wants done. Your expectations are was to high. Especially when it comes to freight.

    Pros

    Great way to learn in depth about your business because every monday is your day. Amazing discount 40% regular, 55% first day of every quarter, random extra discounts for contests

    Cons

    No seperation between work and your personal life. If you want to go corporate theres no other choice than moving to ohio.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to give the managers a line between work and everything else.

    Pros

    A fashion forward company that really teaches sales associates the current trends and how to give great customer service.

    Cons

    There is no room to move to corporate if that is what you want, very hard to get off the retail management track.
