    I have been working at Guess? full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good discount at 40-50% off
    Flexible dress code
    Good music
    Trendy clothes

    Cons

    Always understaffed
    Underpaid for the sales volume
    Don't appreciate opinions of anyone on staff other than store manager
    Long hours and late closing shifts, often past 12 am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest money in hiring the right people, not just the cheaper ones.
    Promote within! It would help with having a more consistent management team
    Compensate your people better. Expectations are extremely high for the salaries given.

    I have been working at Guess? part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great discount 40-50% off. You are first to see new merchandise. You learn how to keep a store organized. Become a professional folder. You learn a lot about the brand.

    Cons

    Competitive workplace. Management is horrible. You get treated poorly by upper staff. Don't get credit for hard work. Employees often steal your customers. Very little hours. Your schedule will not be consistent. Don't try to make friends with everyone in the workplace because they will end up stabbing you in the back during your shift. Trust no one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and curtsey. Just because you are a manager doesn't make you a god/goddess. You started out as a sales associate and if you take so much pride into being a manager for a Guess? you should reorganize your priorities and get a life. Treat others the way you expect to be treated outside of the workplace.
