Pros

I loved the people that worked for me. I had an amazing staff.

Cons

Way too involved just to run a clothing store. Morning routine is an hour of paperwork, charts and boards to fill out, messages to be recorded for employees to listen to- plus going to the bank and cleaning. Not to mention all the other reports and lists and plans managers have to do. Horrible pay for hourly employees AND management team- every one is constantly searching for a better paying job. Low pay = low loyalty I don't care how good of a work ethic you have.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Running a clothing store is just that. At the end of the day you are selling clothes to people- not performing brain surgery. You ask way too much. Just let people get out there and help customers.

    Pros

    There was really nothing I liked about this place. There is a 20 word minimum though so that's why I keep typing.

    Cons

    Co-workers who thought they were privileged, long nights, re-folding a huge store at the end of the night was terrible!! Low pay, management was confused on who was really in charge (too many managers at one store). The music continually gave me a headache too!

    Pros

    Great work enviroment. My managers were very understanding about about me still being in school. I even went to college and came back, no problem

    Cons

    Not enough hours, we had a team of a about twelve to fourteen people which can be frustrating when everyone wants to work full time.
