Pros

Excellent employee discount
Great employees
Casual work environment

It's the holidays, so customers can be bad, but that's going to happen anywhere...

Maybe set up more fixed schedules for temp/holiday employees... the hours are not reliable..

    Pros

    Great clothes and wonderful discount especially on sale items. Good vacation time.

    Cons

    Impossible to reach sales goals for store which is discouraging. Scheduling around personal life (i.e. school, special occasions) very difficult since schedules were scheduled week to week even for management- this may be different at different stores. Impossible to take sick time if actually sick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it possible for employees to continue to work for you, it would lessen high turn over.

    Great part time job

    Pros

    The employee discount is fantastic and the management staff is great at communicating goals and congratulating employees on their accomplishments. Part time staff are eligible for health benefits as well.

    Cons

    As with most part time retail jobs, the hours are not always consistent. Employees are also scheduled for on-call shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should stress the importance of open communication. Because associates work on commission, situations do occur where an associate's sale is taken by a coworker. Management should remind associates to communicate with everyone on the sales floor so that customers are not neglected and sales are properly credited.
