Pros

Full time employees receive benefits after 6 months.
You get to work in a place full of cute new styles and clothes.
Great opportunities to learn more and try new things if you are a hard enough worker.

Cons

The work load and responsibility is not enough for the pay you are compensated.
Some managers tend to be a lot more authoritative rather than fun to work with.
More about numbers and making sales rather than treating employees right.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should really be a lot more considerate of their employees wants and needs in order to create a fun and cultural working environment that is a positive place to come to each day.

    Pros

    You get a ten percent employee discount.

    Cons

    Management is very unprofessional. They pick favorites and gossip about co-workers. Managers would tell you one thing and do another.

    Pros

    Besides getting to work in a "trendy" environment and seeing new clothes first, there is absolutely no pros to working for this company.

    Cons

    Terrible management- no regard for scheduling, lies saying hours are being cut for everyone when the management gives half the staff only 3-10 hours a week but then hires 20 new employees. Then there is a surplus of employees at one time. So literally after clocking in multiple times people have been sent home. Then most of the staff is sent home less than two hours into their shift, leaving the closing shift understaffed and overworked. Management basically wants you to harass customers until they let you assist them. The discount is only 10%, barely even covering tax. I worked on the third floor of the newest f21 on Stockton street. Less than five employees on the floor got over 15 hours a week. Those employees were very obviously being given special treatment. The other floor managers only give hours to the employees they like. Most employees need a second job. I had only 4 hours a week for a year after asking constantly for more hours and being lied to about soon having more hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the accessories visual manager in the shoe department is the nicest
