    I worked at Guess? full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are none at all

    Cons

    Upper management talks down on you. You feel like you are in prison. No one values intelligence, just looks.

    I worked at Guess? part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyday 40% discount regular priced items and 20% off sale.
    Somewhat frequent 50% discount weekends off of everything.
    Management makes you feel good about selling a lot.
    Good one on one on floor training.
    Great practice on selling techniques every day-- fun to gauge your customer and apply social methods you know work based on their reactions to you. (Not specifically for guess- but any retail environment)

    Cons

    Sales goals yet no commission.
    Hard to get your days off, management makes you feel bad for switching shifts etc.
    Lots of "back room" chatter from other employees if you start to make good sales-- however I think that is for any retail environment.
    MANDATORY TO WEAR HIGH HEELS. By the time I left it wasn't just for weekend workers either, girls HAD to wear high heels for five hours at a time with only ONE FIFTEEN minute break. Because of this, my feet are not as pretty as they once were... I had never seen callouses on my toes like that... On the weekends after closing, I would get to my car and have to massage my feet for a 20 minutes because I was in so much pain. In my opinion, the dress code is not worth the slightly over minimum wage I was getting paid without any commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax your environment-- I think management pressures sales so much that customers get bothered and leave the store without anything. Give employes more benefits-- like gift cards or a shopping incentive.
